For a moment, think of a home inspection. The inspector may take a cursory assessment of the main structural components of the home – the roof, the siding, the foundation. Are they crucial to the structural integrity of the house? Absolutely. Are they the only factors that determine the comprehensive value, safety, and appeal of the house? Definitely not. Many smaller, overlooked items can compound to create major problems if they are ignored. Drafty windows could lead to an increase in heating and cooling costs. Faulty plumbing could cause flooding. Inferior wiring could lead to a house fire. One could compare traditional IT services to the aforementioned home inspection. Is your current IT provider only focusing on the big picture but often falling short when planning for critical security minutiae? A virtual CIO (vCIO) is a third party consultant that provides the same specialized strategic services and attention to that critical security minutiae as an in-house Chief Information Officer. Through detailed analysis, technical standard alignment, and process automation, the services provided by a vCIO transcend traditional IT services and identify the finer details that may be leaving your company exposed to potential risks or inefficiencies.

A dedicated vCIO will continually be informed of emerging technologies and new trends that will drive down costs, reduce operational inefficiencies across all departments, and help elevate your business. A vCIO understands that your company is a unique entity with its own nuances, not operating within a one size fits all world.
