Benefits of CIO Leadership Services

Interim CIO – for business transitions, M&A, and business transformations to fill in as a bridge during a formal CIO search, startups, turn-a-rounds, M&A transitions, special projects, etc.

CIO for Client Engagements – Our clients often have long-term, strategic client engagements that warrant an assigned CIO to marshal projects and assure success with the relationship and technicalities.  So we can serve as CIO for the duration and term of the engagement between our client, and their client.

CIO for Partnerships – We frequently partner with companies such as Microsoft, HP, Amazon, and others to assure success with their clients.  Introducing CIO oversight into partner relationships provides a positive relationship.

CIO for CIO Customers – Some of our clients have customers where the CIO is their main contact.  Having a CIO on the team to assist with these strategic CIO-to-CIO relationships is a benefit to both parties.

Full-time CIO – Upon service to our clients, usually for a longer term, we are often asked to stay on either as a longer-term CIO, either on contract or sometimes as full time CIO.  If this works out well for all parties, this can be a consideration. Our model however allows a choice of engagement term as well as dynamically adjustable levels of presence.

CIO for CIO – Sometimes, CIOs need an extra set of hands, either to take on special projects due to extension of expertise, or just to absorb extra CIO work load.  We also can serve as CTO along side an existing CIO.
