IT ESSENTIALS provides a Management Consultant in the manner of a VCIO or virtual CIO. This VCIO is an experienced IT professional – ideally with an in-depth understanding of business strategy and technology, who serves as a part-time ‘chief information officer’ of a small or medium-sized business that otherwise could not afford or would not need a full time executive to hold the position. This VCIO is hired as a consultant (i.e. an expert retained on contract), but could serve as a member of a company’s executive management team. The objective of a VCIO is to align the company’s information technology strategy and spending with the overall business objectives of the company. The VCIO can bring extraordinary value to smaller organizations. The ability to get top-notch talent working toward your business’s long-term future at a fraction of the cost of a regular CIO can yield an impressive return-on-investment. Additionally, having an executive on your team that works with a portfolio of clients gives you access to more experience than one organization can provide. A VCIO would work with the business management team to understand the business and future so they can anticipate ways to support the organization. Their sole purpose is not simply to reduce information technology costs. A VCIO will provide strategic leverage for their clients by using technology to increase their capacity and solve business problems.
