A Virtual Chief Information Officer (vCIO) provides expertise in cybersecurity, data management, and operations, to find flaws in your current cybersecurity programs and protocols and work to improve them. A vCIO is both effective and affordable, providing you with the knowledge and expertise of a high-level technology expert with a deep understanding of business management, without the expense of a CIO.
What is a VCIO?
vCIO stands for “Virtual Chief Information Officer”. With a vCIO, you have access to the knowledge and expertise of a CIO without the expense of having a full-time officer on staff. Beyond the cost savings of a full-time employee, access to a vCIO provides your business with a high-level technology expert with a deep understanding of business management. A vCIO will provide you with insight into how implementing the right technology, at the right time, can take your business to the next level.
Why are companies looking to a vCIO?
To Analyze your IT Environment
For many businesses, an overall assessment of the work environment, from the hardware and software to the infrastructure and business processes, reveals a series of opportunities to improve the company’s system and stay aligned with best practice and security standards. At Resolute Consulting Group, we do this as part of your annual managed services plan. It’s our responsibility as your vCIO to perform an annual assessment with the rest of our team. Together we review the results and discuss them with you. This is an essential tool for annual planning and budgeting.
To use Technology Strategically
Understanding which technologies will help your business accomplish its goals allows you to create an IT system that aligns with your company’s unique needs and vision. This requires a strategic look at all your technology and, oftentimes, a deep technical knowledge of how all the moving parts work (or don’t work) together.
To Increase Client and Employee Value
As your vCIO, we can help you identify ways to leverage your technology to increase value. As an example, a well-implemented file sharing system can help your clients get secure access to information they need from you faster while, at the same time, make it easier and more efficient for employees to work with files. Both your clients and employees benefit through increased satisfaction and service delivery.
To See What’s Coming Around The Corner
Knowing industry trends and what’s around the corner is an essential vCIO duty. Knowing what’s next and being able to analyze the impact these changes could have helps your company to invest in the right technology at the right time. This benefits you because you have a competitive edge over your competitors.
This is an initiative that entails advance planning and preparation, both of which are required to ensure that an organization will have the capability to operate its critical business functions during emergency events. Events can include power outages, natural disasters, a business crisis, pandemic, hackers, viruses, or any event that results in a disruption of your business operation. It is important to remember that you should plan and prepare not only for events that will stop functions completely but for those that also have the potential to adversely impact services or functions. 2 key proponents of this practice are Backups and Backup Recovery.
