Virtual CIO Services

 

It’s clear that a seasoned, professional IT leader is needed to provide IT direction and management in every organization, large or small.

However, many organizations find themselves without the support of a Chief Information Officer (CIO), for several reasons:

  • The organization lacks the size to justify a full time position

  • A capable CIO who held the position, recently departed the organization

  • An acquisition or merger is about to, or has, taken place and the uncertainty has caused a vacancy in the CIO role

 

Regardless of the reason, the need is clear and immediate. 24ITintegrator's Virtual CIOs have the requisite experience and background needed to define and execute your technology strategy across your organization.
