A Virtual Chief Information Officer (vCIO) is a fractional member of your team, dedicated to keeping your information security compliant, protected, and up to date.
Why Do I Need a VCIO?
Technology is a major contributor to business success. It’s also growing increasingly more complex. Most CEO’s are limited in their understanding of technology. They may have IT people on staff to help make technology work but lack a resource that will guarantee their investments are strategic, practical, and in full support of their business goals. Hiring a dedicated Chief Information Officer (CIO) isn’t always realistic. But partnering with a virtual CIO (vCIO) is.
What Does a VCIO Do?
A vCIO will come in and provide you with the guidance that you need at a fraction of the cost of a CIO. Here is what is included in our vCIO services:
IT Strategic Planning
Align your technology to the strategic goals of your business and put your business in a position to capitalize on emerging technology trends.
Work with leadership to ensure a proper technology budget is in place and then provide a roadmap that will guide spending so you can see what you’re investing in on a quarterly basis.
Vet technology vendors to ensure they can deliver the solutions they promise and then manage your technology vendors to ensure the level of service is consistent.
Certified Project Management Professionals (PMP) will ensure that your technology projects are completed on time and on budget.
