What is a Virtual CIO and why do you need one?

A Chief Information Officer (CIO) is a C-level executive responsible for aligning your information technology and systems with your business strategy. The main role of a CIO is to set and lead your technology strategy, ensuring it supports your broader business objectives.

Typically, a CIO understands your business requirements and prioritises them through technology, while building and maintaining an effective IT team.

An outsourced (or virtual) CIO is a dedicated resource serving as your company’s CIO on a flexible basis. The primary focus of a vCIO is to formulate strategic IT goals for your company and manage an IT strategy and budget that meet those goals.

With an outsourced CIO, you will have someone working with you to ensure your technology is used to grow, adapt, sustain, and support your business. This ongoing support ensures your technology continues to drive your business forward.
