Professionals with a wealth of applied knowledge are hard to find, especially for IT strategy. A vCIO service lets you skip the hiring and onboarding processes and cut costs, while having someone manage your technologies into profits and growth.
Why do you need to leverage vCIO Services
In today's age of digital transformation, the servers, technology and even jobs are increasingly remote, located where the talent is based. That "virtualization" of job roles is a cost-efficient way for small- and medium-size businesses (SMBs) to enjoy the expertise and experience of executive roles such as chief information officer (CIO) and CEO.
Responsible for planning and implementing technology strategy for the entire organization, the CIO role is critical for businesses looking to stay competitive. CIOs are senior technology executive positions in any enterprise, and usually lead the IT department. Such a role, however, comes with a relatively high price tag.
vCIOs enable SMBs to avoid the costs (hiring, onboarding, salary, benefits, and bonuses) of full-time CIOs and IT staff.
In the United States, the average annual CIO salary is $157,934. Although large enterprises usually have one in place, most SMBs cannot afford them, yet they require the expertise and experience a CIO brings to the table.
Fortunately, there is a way for businesses to enjoy the services of CIOs without having to dole out six-figure salaries. With the massive adoption of the cloud and cloud-based workloads, virtual CIO (vCIO) services are ideal for flexible infrastructure where most SMBs already operate. vCIOs work remotely to perform the same core functions as in-house positions. They plan IT budgets and revise internal processes to align with digital transformation initiatives.
