What is a Virtual CIO service?
A Virtual CIO is an outsourced role that combines the tasks managed and maintained by chief information officers, chief technology officers and technology consultants.
Virtual CIOs are responsible for providing technological leadership, multi-asset management, and developing and managing strategic and forward-thinking systems and infrastructure. These systems are designed to accomplish the organisation’s overall business objectives, as well as improve organisational scalability and agility.
Virtual CIOs decisions encompass technology and decision making that supports long-term growth and strategy. Virtual CIOs focus on bridging the gap between small business and large enterprise.

Importance of a CIO
The role of the CIO (Chief Information Officer) is now more important than ever before. Combining the strategic use of technology with business processes and objectives is vital to day-to-day and long-term business success.
However, hiring a full-time CIO can be quite challenging and costly. High profile executive positions like CIOs and CTOs have high qualifications, very robust experience and come at a steep cost to hire and retain.
This is where a virtual CIO becomes a valuable and cost-effective solution to support your business.
