This is a win-win for both the small business and the outsourcing company because these qualified programmers or system administrators can work with flexibility on specific jobs they are good at, while the company that hired them can maintain a reasonable staff level. The IT work can be left to the professionals, and the company can focus on growing the business, while they keep their overhead to a minimum.
