The PeopleSoft technical environment is complex and challenging. The skills required to support this environment are extensive and the pool of internal resources always insufficient to cover the full spectrum of required competencies.
Companies tend to staff for ‘peaks’ leading to high IT and human resource costs. Even firms with large in-house departments face a resource crunch when they are looking to deploy more modules or upgrade their systems. The cost and scarcity of these specialized skills is aggravated even further by their increased mobility. The overheads associated with identifying, hiring, inspiring and retaining such skills are high both in terms of time and money. Addressing these issues requires a substantial investment of capital and human resources, and the risk of failure is still substantial. We believe that using a combination of internal and external resources to optimize your IT and human resource spending can substantially reduce these risks.
