What Is a vCIO – And Why Do I Need One?

Most small to mid-sized businesses find it impossible to justify hiring a true CIO.

As a result, their IT fails to thrive due to a lack of expertise, resources and time. Confidently planning, budgeting, and managing IT requires the guidance of a trained, time-tested executive.

A Virtual CIO (Chief Information Officer) fulfills the role of a traditional CIO. When we act as your virtual CIO, we become responsible for building your technology roadmap that arms you with a competitive edge – at a much better cost than a full-time CIO.

Understanding Your

IT Goals for the Future

A strong IT roadmap doesn’t just plan for the coming months – it prepares for the coming years.

The top priority in all of our IT strategy and planning partnerships is outlining your long-term business objectives with a realistic approach to achieve them. Your IT infrastructure should grow with your business, and we will make sure one doesn’t outgrow the other.

The alignment of business strategy and IT is crucial in today’s tech-driven economy. Without a granular strategy, companies may invest too much on technology without solving the business challenges they face due to different departmental objectives, cultures, and incentives. That’s where a vCIO steps in to guide your organization’s business and IT alignment so that technology integrates across each business unit to meet core objectives.

Practical Insights in Layman Terms

Technology is complex; the actionable insights we extract shouldn’t be. Your vCIO will always present technical information and the results gathered in plain English every stakeholder can understand.


Make Cost-Effective IT Decisions

A vCIO acts as an integrated extension of your IT department, leading procurement and solution selection to design the most cost-effective tech stack that will help you reach your business goals.


Anticipate Tech Trends

Technology has leveled the playing field across virtually every industry. We help you leverage IT to out-compete the Goliath’s of your industry.


Sustainable Compliance Programs

Each vCIO understands the challenges of maintaining industry and legal compliance across people, processes, and technology. Whether it’s CCPA, PCI DSS, HIPAA, or another regulation, your vCIO will review existing policies and procedures, provide recommendations, and ensure the required changes are implemented to spec so your organization maintains compliance.
