Hargreaves Lansdown IT director David Davies

The CIO of financial services firm Hargreaves Lansdown, David Davies, believes that insourcing is a better approach than outsourcing where possible, in order to maintain the solid foundations of a business.
Davies was speaking at Computing's IT Leaders' Summit 2015 last week, when he suggested that IT should be built on solid foundations - with four main areas that CIOs should ensure are looked after: stability, capacity, security and resiliency.

Davies suggested that while every business has different requirements, in his view, outsourcing seems like a cheaper alternative but is likely to cost more over time.
He also believes there is an inconsistency when it comes to knowledge of business products from third parties and long-term uncertainty.
"A lot of third parties don't understand the business; the sales guy may say he loves [your business]... but believe me he doesn't," said Davies.
According to Davies, insourcing allows the business to have more ownership and accountability, and means that it can react more swiftly as it isn't bound by service level agreements (SLAs). It also means that employees are more loyal, and therefore will go the extra mile for the firm, he said.
Davies was ranked fifth in Computing's IT Leaders 100 list 2015 and was named CIO of the year at the UK IT Industry Awards 2014.
