303: Discussion Forum - To Outsource or Not, That is the Question

Description

The question of whether to outsource technical analytics work to a third party, or not, is a material question for analytics leaders at utilities. Third parties can scale up or down with workload and take over managing overhead. Third parties might also have expertise on hand that the utility does not. On the flip side, engaging third parties for analytics projects can be more costly on an hourly basis, hinder internal technical growth, result in a long-term dependence on third party support and potentially negatively impact utility analytics team morale.
