Virtual Chief Information Officer

Generally, a chief executive officer's primary responsibilities include making major business decisions, overseeing the overall operations and resources of a company, and acting as the main point of contact with the board of directors, investors, and corporate operations.

If you are a medium-sized business you may not have investors, and if you’re a small organization you may not have a board of directors or investors, but you are both CEOs of your company with the same responsibilities. Do you also have time to be the CIO and technology expert?

If you are having growing pains, hiring a Virtual CIO can provide you with an objective assessment of your processes and help you customize your infrastructure to meet the needs not just for today, but for the future. Moreover, you’ll understand the various system and hardware options that will meet your goals and the difference in price/quality/reliability.
