Our vCIO service performs the same functions as a conventional CIO on a shared customer basis. These duties include formulating strategic IT goals, planning the IT budget, analyzing and reworking business processes, vendor & supplier contract management and facilitating technology changes. The vCIO role helps our customers maintain their IT infrastructure -- keeping the lights on -- but can also provide more-forward looking services. For example, a vCIO can work with customers to plan a technology roadmap, identify opportunities to use new technology tools. If your business lacks an internal IT department or has a very limited IT staff, it can help to grant wider decision-making authority and technology deployment responsibilities to the vCIO. The main difference between the vCIO function and other technical advisory services is that the vCIO takes a broader, more forward looking view, focusing on business and IT alignment.

Our vCIO is a specialised service and is provided by Orstead senior consultant Richard Halliday. It is always very client specific, so if you think you may be interested, the best place to start is to book in a face to face meeting. To book an appointment please email
