MISAC Annual Conference Preview: The Outsourcing/Insourcing Debate

Monday, August 29, 2016  
Share |

Most municipal IT departments rely on internal talent. In fact, a recent study by Deloitte shows a trend towards IT insourcing.

The City of Riverside’s Innovation and Technology Department has outsourced IT services for the past 20 years. However, the City Council voted unanimously in May of 2016 to insource the IT Department.

Join Lea Deesing, Chief Innovation Officer for the City of Riverside, as she walks conference participants through the history of outsourcing in the City. Strategic partnerships with local private sector resources have helped Riverside live up to its brand as the “City of Arts and Innovation” and helped launch large endeavors in the City.

Lea will detail the challenges and benefits of outsourcing, including security, retention and accountability. The reality of the current talent landscape is that there will be more technology jobs in the future than there are qualified people to fill the positions.  What are the best options, and why?

Come along on Lea’s journey. You will walk away with a solid understanding of the real life challenges and opportunities involved in both strategies.
