Many IT departments no longer have the required skills or capacity in-house to meet the increasing demands of their business - it has therefore become necessary to look outside the business to fill the gap.

"Bio enable us to have an exemplary pool of flexible and scalable talent at our disposal that we can draw on in an incredibly convenient way."
Head of Infrastructure Delivery, Press Association

But are IT resourcing providers really meeting the challenge? Are their delivery and commercial models enabling IT departments to realise the full value of such an approach?

In many instances, IT departments are falling into the trap of adopting traditional routes, which don't necessarily satisfy their needs or that of their business, such as employing a contractor or agency.

If you are one of the thousands of IT decision makers who look outside of your own organisation to increase capacity and expand capabilities, a next-generation approach to IT resourcing will extend your team and increase performance, whilst importantly allowing you to retain control

Bio understands the challenges in managing capacity to ensure that your business has the correct IT personnel and skills. Specific projects require niche skills that may not be permanently available in your steady-state organisation.

Peaks in operational activity and major projects all put a heavy demand on internal personnel and the management of business as usual activities. There are often conflicting pressures to manage costs and minimise staff headcount that make it difficult to deal with these situations. Bio provides a complementary resourcing service that allows you to augment your team with our personnel when you need it, and for as long as you need.

Bio work as an integral part of your operational, technical or project team. This service can be used to provide specialist skills into your organisation, or simply provide a flexible way of dealing with peaks in activity.

This is a far more flexible way of working than the traditional contractor approach – we can take advantage of the exact skills we need, when we need them and for exactly how long we need them, without any of the pain of traditional contractors or agencies.

Initially we thought of Bio as we do our contractors – we just needed someone for a specific issue. But we soon saw and experienced the difference.

Bio’s people very quickly got on board with the culture of the company and became part of the team. They added a depth of skill that exceeded our expectations and brought ideas and suggestions outside of their remit to assist us, and to ensure we were receiving the best service.

Director of Infrastructure and Architecture EU, AB InBev
