vCIO gaining attention
A Virtual Chief Information Officer, or vCIO, is a person who provides consultation for your technology strategy as a third party, as opposed to an in-house CIO. The vCIO is the bridge between your business and the technology teams powering your digital transformation. They oversee the client’s entire IT infrastructure, ensuring everything in a business’s network is firing smoothly.
Today, many SMBs are coming to the conclusion that digital transformation is a necessary step for their company to remain competitive, but have budgetary concerns regarding their IT departments.
A virtual CIO is an experienced, high-level professional that companies can utilize to strengthen and expand the Organization IT strategy. They bring their personal experiences and a network of knowledgeable technical resources to work with you to determine the best IT solutions for your business.
A vCIO takes a seat at your table and is focused on understanding your business and how technology can support your strategic initiatives and goals in order to help lead your business to success.
Technology constantly evolves and provides new opportunities for businesses. vCIO can help to identify new developments that reduce costs, increase efficiencies, and possibly change the way that you do business & open new avenues & revenue streams.
These vCIO services enable you to find, and keep, that competitive edge and take advantage of the latest technology. Also continue to keep the cost down, rapidly adapt to new age tech like RPA, Cloud Transformations, AI-ML, Analytics etc.
Additionally, a vCIO can assist with discovery & development of business process re-alignment, process improvement & Automation. vCIO can also work with you to discover new opportunities with your existing technologies in order to make the most of your valuable, existing resources & help build a road map. Also, can help plan & maintain the operational KPI & keep the lights green at all times.
Ensuring the success of a vCIO goes well beyond paying the bill. The vCIO has to engage with management to have a chance at success. If they are only dealing with the IT resources, you have hired a glorified and expensive IT manager.
You need to budget time for your management team to meet with the vCIO, especially in the beginning. It’ll help quickly determine whether you’ve got the right person in the seat and pay dividends in the end.
