I.T. Alliance Group Expansion

Dublin, Sunday, 30th August, 2015:  I.T. Alliance, the Irish owned IT outsourcing and cloud support group of companies, has announced the expansion of its project management operations which will create an additional 25 new jobs by the year end. Hiring of the new roles will commence at this year’s Career Zoo in the Convention Centre, Dublin on September 12th.

Revenues at I.T. Alliance Group from project management services alone are on course to reach €10m this year. I.T. Alliance already employs 50 project management staff across its various divisions.

In May this year, I.T. Alliance sister company Auxilion announced an €800,000 investment in a new Project Support Service designed to assist organisations deliver many of the more labour intensive tasks associated with overall project delivery such as administration and support.

Dermot Hore, head of PMO, I.T. Alliance Group, said that the further expansion and additional 25 jobs were being driven by a number of market factors this year. “As confidence returns to the economy, many organisations are looking to dust down and rapidly implement ICT (information and communications technology) projects which had previously been shelved during the recession.

"At the same time, many organisations are looking to consolidate their technology which had previously been implemented on an ad hoc, un-coordinated basis due to budget pressures during the recession. Companies of all sizes are using the opportunity to make the leap from traditional on premise software to cloud solutions such as Microsoft 365.”

He said that I.T. Alliance’s business model allowed companies to hire in project managers and support staff at a lower cost and risk than hiring contractors directly.

Commenting on the launch of Microsoft’s new Windows 10 operating system, Mr Hore said, “While StatCounter data finds that Windows XP internet usage in Ireland has fallen from 7.7% to 4.1% over the last 12 months, we are surprisingly finding that many larger organisations are still reliant on XP. They are urgently implementing moves to upgrade which will accelerate the demand for project management services particularly for the larger rollouts across corporate and enterprise.”

I.T. Alliance Group (http://www.italliancegroup.com/) reports demand for project management personnel right across its divisions including its core outsourcing business which provides services to global IT companies; Auxilion (http://www.auxilion.com/) which delivers support and transitioning to companies moving to the cloud; and its IT staff resourcing group.

Irish owned I.T. Alliance Group, which employs 500 people, is a leading provider of IT managed services, IT project delivery and business outsourcing solutions. Founded in 1997, the company operates its headquarters in Park West, Dublin with a cloud computing support office in Sheffield, UK.
