Why a Fractional CIO? Small businesses have one person running things at the top, usually the CEO or the owner.
In Disaster Recovery for many organizations, reliance on IT means they cannot operate if their system goes down.
As the demand for experienced, executive-level technology personnel increases, the impact of technology on companies has never been more complex.
Hiring a fractional CIO (chief information officer) has several potential benefits for a company. Some of the most significant benefits may include the following:
Cost savings: Hiring a fractional CIO can be more cost-effective than hiring a full-time CIO, especially for smaller companies that may not have the budget for a full-time executive. Fractional CIOs typically charge an hourly rate or a flat fee for their services, which can be less expensive than the salary and benefits required to hire a full-time CIO.
Flexibility: A fractional CIO can be hired on a part-time or as-needed basis, which allows the company to access a CIO’s expertise and guidance without the commitment of a full-time employee. Because fractional CIOs are only on an as-needed basis, organizations can scale their technology support up or down as needed, potentially resulting in cost savings.
