Virtual CIO & Strategic Planning

Virtual Chief Information Officer (vCIO) and Strategic Planning Services

The flexible IT leadership solution you need.

Small and midsize companies need someone in the role of chief information officer (CIO), but often lack a full-time CIO. A virtual chief information officer (vCIO) is the perfect solution. A vCIO is a dedicated resource that serves as a chief information officer on a flexible basis to facilitate goal setting and strategy planning, as well as managing IT strategy, implementation and budgets to meet those goals.

Virtual CIO

The virtual CIO role typically has both strategic business and technical functions, from managing a digital transformation for a competitive advantage to ensuring cybersecurity solutions are in regulatory compliance. Having a vCIO in conjunction with a managed services provider (MSP) can drive digital transformation, technology adoption, and other processes.
