Whether you are an enterprise or a systems integrator, if you are seeking expertise to lead and support a technology transformation initiative, you face enormous hurdles. Implementing critical technology infrastructure requires highly specialized expertise, so there is a narrow ecosystem of people with hands-on experience, especially if you are an early adopter of an emergent technology. Finding people with the right expertise is only part of the equation: they must be the right fit culturally so they see the project through, and you do not have to restaff; they must be capable of and willing to work in a remote setting; or they must be regionally available if you need them to work on site. Adding to the complexity is that the skilled experts that comprise this part of the technology labor market are selective and only want to work on the most interesting and challenging projects for the most ground-breaking companies.
The stakes are high—identify the right expertise and you’ll realize the full potential of your enterprise technology investment faster and be able to drive stronger business performance. Choose the wrong talent, and you risk delays or unsuccessful implementations that don’t meet your business goals.
The reality is that since most traditional technology staffing companies are focused on meeting the needs of broader technology skillsets, you are not going to be able find this type of expertise through them. They do not understand the overarching directive of the transformation initiative—why the company is undertaking it and what the goals and objectives of it are—nor do they understand the technology itself and the types of expertise that will be needed over the course of what might be a years-long implementation to bring it to fruition. Further, most staffing companies are reactive vs. proactive. They wait until a request comes in from a prospective client before trying to fill the need, which can cause long delays. Then, they cast a wide net, pulling in anyone and everyone and hoping someone fits the bill.
A Precision Approach to Finding the Right Expertise at the Right Time
As you can see, for both enterprises and system integrators, finding the right people at the right time to staff their enterprise technology transformation initiative can be extremely challenging. That’s the problem that Baer’s precision approach to finding the right expertise to support these critical infrastructure projects is designed to solve.
We only staff large-scale infrastructure projects for leading enterprise technologies, including SAP, Oracle, Microsoft, Amazon, Google, and Salesforce—we are not a general technology staffing company. This means we have a deep understanding of the technologies and solutions as well the types of highly specialized expertise that are needed throughout the lifecycle of the implementation process for them. It also enables us to take a proactive approach to identifying people with the right qualifications and experience. We don’t wait until one of our trusted partners, which include both leading systems integrators, Fortune 500 enterprises, and government entities requiring security clearance, comes to us with a need. Instead, we are continuously cultivating talent that has the expertise to support both today’s leading technologies and emerging ones.
As our recruiting team meets with prospective talent, only the most skilled and experienced candidates are invited to join our Opportunity Edge™ job opportunity network.
