As a vCIO, we collaborate with you and perform the same functions as a conventional CIO. Those duties may include formulating strategic IT goals, planning the IT budget, analyzing and reworking business processes and facilitating technology changes. As your vCIO, we will not only help you maintain your IT network — “keeping the lights on” — but we can also provide more-forward thinking. As vCIO, we work with you to plan a technological roadmap and identify opportunities to use new technology tools. If your company lacks an internal IT department or has a very limited IT staff, then you can allow us the decision-making authority and technology deployment responsibilities to help you grow. The main difference between our vCIO service and other technical advisory services by our competition is that we, as the vCIO, take a broader perspective by focusing on your internal business needs and align the IT systems for your growth.
