Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
Think of your virtual Chief Information Officer (vCIO) as the dedicated technology consultant you’ve always wanted to hire to manage your in-house IT and guide your small business. The vCIO is like an IT guru who helps you make smart business decisions and make the most out of your IT resources.
Your vCIO does many things like evaluating the suitability of new technology, assisting with budgeting, network operational performance, exploring opportunities for growth or improvement, providing guidance on cloud storage and server solutions, and providing recommendations on IT security among other things.
A vCIO oversees, commissions and innovate your business IT. They will develop a technology roadmap for your business and ensure that your IT resources keep pace with your business growth. From time to time, they will recommend new technology that spurs business growth and help you position your business to take advantage of new business opportunities.
Larger firms in Melbourne have CIOs to make daily tech decisions and guide the CEOs and COOs. Without a dedicated IT consultant, a Virtual CIO becomes your most-trusted business partner.
A vCIO is a viable option for small-medium size businesses in Melbourne that need top-level consultation or strategic IT guidance, but don’t have the money to hire a full-time CIO. By hiring a vCIO, your business takes away the burden of technology from the CEO and other executives, so they can focus on growing the business.
