Some might wonder what difference vCIO services can make in your business. Have you had a project go over budget or take longer than predicted? These are the kind of situations a vCIO can help prevent. In the past, organizations would hire an internal Chief Information Officer to make strategic technology decisions for the future and plot the path to reach your business goals.
The most significant issues with that are the price and the level of knowledge you are getting for your investment. Small- and medium-sized businesses have always been limited by their budgets and the cost of first-rate technology project management. Hiring a vCIO over a CIO can help those small businesses make the most of their situation and reach beyond their limitations.
If you hire an in-house, full-time CIO, you have to consider the costs of paying their salary, employee benefits, and eventual raises in pay. If they’re well qualified, then that could be a hefty starting salary as well. The bottom line is vCIO services are more affordable; your business gets the technical expertise you need at a cost-effective price.
We include IT consulting and vCIO practices within our managed services. So, while you’re paying for IT services like disaster recovery and managed network security, you’ll be able to take advantage of our expertise for planning your technology roadmap.
