Risks and benefits go hand in hand in most cases. This article from Computer World UK gives a list of pros and cons associated with outsourcing IT services.
"Outsourcing a range of business functions has become common practice for enterprises across the world. According to the Arvato UK Outsourcing Index, the value of outsourcing contracts in the private sector swelled to £4.9 billion in 2017, representing a nine percent increase on the year before.
This particularly applies to the outsourcing of IT functions, which accounted for a massive 73 percent of the UK outsourcing industry in 2017. This volume is also doubling each year, with more than twice as much spent on IT outsourcing in 2017 (£3.8 billion) than 2016 (£1.7 billion)."
