Outsourced IT, Done Right
Several sources have commented that British Airways' decision to outsource its technology to a company in India could have exacerbated the problem. No definitive answers have been given, but as an IT outsourcing company of 25 years, we can confidently say that WHO you outsource to makes all the difference during a disaster. A proactive and reliable IT partner monitors systems around the clock, alerts you of problems before they're problems, ensures redundancy and that backup systems are tested and fail-safe, and just has your back. Before you commit to an outsourcing partner, find out if their consultants can accomplish these basics and gauge how committed they are to helping your business succeed.
