vCIO services is a radical departure from traditional MSP services, yet at the same time highly complementary. In fact, your MSP services already play a strategic role in improving your organization’s IT efficiency, saving you money and increasing your revenues.
However, there are huge client benefits from a more consistently innovative approach to IT that a vCIO can deliver. With a vCIO service, clients only pay for what the services they need — which can be very attractive to businesses who can’t afford to bring on an expensive CIO full time.
A vCIO , just like an enterprise CIO, is not so much a pure technophile as a business expert who understands how to apply technology to best support the business.
Some of the vCIO duties include aligning business objectives with IT systems, formulating a strategic IT plan, and analyzing business processes to facilitate changes in technology. Just as you’d rely on a financial advisor for strategic fiscal advice, a virtual CIO should be your go-to technical contact as well as a trusted business partner who understands how technology fulfills a company’s unique needs.
Lastly, the advice you get from a virtual CIO is separate from any implementation engagements or software/hardware reselling which makes it so there is no conflict of interest when providing recommendations.
Prometheus Consulting works with internal personnel to ensure they understand what is expected of them by the business. Technicians, by nature, don’t always think about the most effective and/or efficient way to communicate value to Executives.
Spending doesn’t equal success. Prometheus Consulting will help to diagnose business issues from multiple areas and advise on best course of action to remedy the situation. Sometime this doesn’t mean that you have to pend more. It might mean that you have to establish governance, policies and training to remedy issues.
