Virtual IT Director / CIO
The IT director or "Chief Information Office" is a key role in any large organisation. Typically they drive strategy, planning, documentation, as well as policy around IT and technology supporting the overall business. This role can be hard to fill, and in a smaller company may well be non-existant.
With Freethought acting as a virtual CIO we will periodically audit your business to identify key areas of your business and areas for improvement and innovation. We will then document, improve, and drive those areas for you without the expense of an actual executive level employee. For smaller companies this is perfect as it means you get the expertise of a corporate level executive specialising in innovation and IT, without the expense.
The vCIO process
Being the vCIO for your business is an iterative process, the world of technology is constantly changing with new technology and opportunities constantly arrising. Not to mention new threats and risk constantly rearing their heads.
Each iteration we review where your business is currently, take on board your strengths and opportunities, and then put a recommendation together around those. Once that is done we break down the design into bite sized streams for your teams to implement, once that is done we then transition to providing day-to-day support for those new processes. Finally, we repeat the process again.
