Following are five ways a vCIO helps you save money:
Flexibility provides for effective IT alignment to business
Companies that run lean prefer the flexibility offered by engaging the services of a virtual CIO. With a vCIO, your enterprise can use as much or as little of the vCIO services as you need. In addition, a vCIO assesses your IT infrastructure and systems with objectivity, to make prudent IT decisions.
Steps in to address IT challenges
A vCIO has the wherewithal to address IT challenges when they occur; if the company providing IT services cannot solve your problem, the vCIO takes over, on demand, to resolve the issues.
Keeps IT costs down
You have money invested in hardware and software, and a vCIO works to optimize your IT processes to meet business needs. Businesses run smoothly, and members of business unit teams have the tools they need from IT to get their jobs done.
Allows the business to focus on core competencies
Dealing with technology using a vCIO allows the management team to concentrate on their core competencies, without worrying about IT, for their business units and the business overall.
Manage IT risk
As risks associated with IT expand, managing them is harder. Companies need to manage risk and be proactive in reducing it and managing IT; using a vCIO helps your company reduce downtime and address security risks such as ransomware and hacking threats.
If your company IT department is facing a daunting task in maintaining day to day IT operations, it is time for you to explore the possibilities of engaging a vCIO.
