Virtual CIO Services
However, some challenges come along with all the good things. Nowhere is this truer than when considering the IT in your business. It is not uncommon for a business to fall on the cusp of hiring a full-time chief information (or technology) officer. Or not. When you are uncertain about bringing such a person into the company, you have a smart, viable alternative available to you. A Virtual Chief Information Officer (vCIO) is the answer. Another name for a vCIO is a Virtual Chief Technical Officer (vCTO). Despite the word virtual, this person is a living, breathing person. The biggest difference is that virtual CIO services come from outside the organization.
At Catapult Tech Solutions, we believe a vCIO is a businessperson who performs the role of a CIO.What exactly does that mean? There are basically two areas of responsibility. First, there are the business and financial considerations.
Second, is the technology side, which is more hands on with networks, servers, hardware, software, and wiring. Someone performing vCIO services is not a decisionmaker for the organization. Instead, he is someone who knows the organization, the technology in place, what is needed, and then makes recommendations. Another benefit to a vCIO is that, in reality, you get a team of experts and professionals because he has all the resources of Catapult Tech Solutions and partners at hand.
Wondering what a vCIO can do for you?

While IT Consulting approaches several of the same areas as a virtual chief information officer, it is for a particular time or reason. An IT consultant provides answers to the questions at hand. The virtual CIO looks at everything globally. Then he considers how it fits into the needs and budget of your organization.
