What are the Benefits of Having a Virtual CIO?

The main advantage to having a vCIO is the cost savings. The expense to hire a CIO in-house is far more than hiring a vCIO to supplement your IT needs. A virtual CIO does not have the HR, compliance, or space requirements of an office employee. This provides a predictable, fixed monthly cost that can be custom-tailored to your individual business needs.

In reality, you don’t just get a virtual CIO. You also get an entire team of dedicated specialists in all facets of information technology. Clients are provided with 24/7/365 support and monitoring.

Virtual CIOs also form solid IT strategies and act as an advisor to your organization’s IT department. Virtual CIOs plan for the future of technology, and align business and information technology objectives together. Roadmaps are put in place to help both current hardware and software needs, but also strategize for the evolution of technology.

Virtual CIOs can also act as a vCISO (virtual Chief Information Security Officer). Since mitigating risks of cyberattacks is of the utmost importance in this day and age, a vCIO will help manage your organization’s security and offer services from employee training to updating and patching systems.


The IT industry is always changing and our IT engineers seize every moment to find the best way to keep your business on the leading edge of technology. Here are some articles to help share the knowledge.
