Why are Virtual CIO Services Important?
Virtual CIO Services are valuable to small and medium sized business (SMB) owners and managers for the following reasons:
1. To maximize return on investment (ROI) in IT systems, business entities must align IT Strategic Plans and Goals with the overall Strategic Plans and Goals of the organization. Failure to achieve a proper alignment will result in a “tug of war” between the two strategies and maximum ROI will never be reached.
2. To maximize ROI in IT systems, business entities must also ensure that adequate IT systems are designed, implemented, measured and maintained in order to meet the technology needs of the organization. Failure to achieve this adequacy results in decreased performance, decreased accuracy, lower system reliability, and decreased performance.
3. To maximize ROI in IT systems, SMB owners and managers require accurate and relevant information about technology to make informed business decisions about technology. Without this information SMB owners and managers will not be able to implement necessary Business Process Improvements that fully integrate their IT infrastructure into their business operations resulting in less than maximum efficiency and productivity. Similarly, without this information SMB owner will not be able to make the best purchasing decisions, resulting in a higher total cost of ownership in the IT infrastructure.
Virtual CIO Services are designed to assist SMB owners and managers in maximizing their ROI in IT systems.
