With IT spending starting to increase and new technologies offering a number of benefits for enterprises, IT departments have a lot to do. Projects that had been put on hold due to the recession are starting to get put back on track but IT departments may not have the talent to get them rolling properly and may need to partner with a Solution Provider to answer these technological challenges.

IT Principals are looking for the best resources to work on these projects and seeking out permanent employees that are still green, which may not have the immediate impact on a new initiative as bringing in a temporary IT contractor.

A new article by Serdar Yegulalp from ComputerWorld looks at the rising interest in project-based staffing and how it is helping enterprises get the exact skill set they need for as long as they need it. Employers are relying on these strategies in every aspect of IT, according to the report.

"Proponents say contract IT workers – meaning those engaged on a temporary basis for either in-house or remote work – allow companies large and small to access skills not currently available on staff; quickly round out project teams without a lengthy, costly hiring process; and offload routine tasks for which low cost is the primary consideration," wrote Yegulalp.

A NetworkWorld article reiterates these trends with a new report on a recent IT hiring survey from Dice. The overall element the report found is that companies are looking to hire experienced journeymen as opposed to apprentices.

For IT Principals implementing new technology or falling behind on a deployment timeline, getting the best resources is imperative. VARs and Integrators that partner with VAR Staffing have access to premier talent that help them become go-to assets for IT departments.
