WHAT IS VirtualCIO™?
VirtualCIO™ is a service for businesses who want a part-time Chief Information Officer. At Maxsys we are all about helping organisations, private sector and government agencies, realise value from their investments.
A CIO is exactly that – A Chief Information Officer, not just someone who deals with IT or even IT enabled systems. They manage all of the informational requirements needed to meet organisational goals and make strategic decisions.
How does the Service Work?
You will be provided with robust and professional Information Technology and Infomation Management advice to help you achieve your aspirations for your business. Smaller organisations can have the benefits of a CIO, without the cost of a full-time employee.
Through VirtualCIO™ we become part of your strategic team, management team or IT governance committee.
VirtualCIO™ suits those clients who want regular contact with someone that understands IT, strategic information needs and their organisation. We provide independent IT and IM advice. We do not sell hardware or software.
We start with your strategic plan and develop an understanding and appreciation of your organisation’s goals. Then if you want us to we prepare a strategic information systems and information management plan to take you there.
Over time we will provide you with advice and suggestions to help you make the right IT and information managment decisions when you need to.
Many smaller and medium size organisations are at the mercy of their technology provider because they cannot afford to employ someone full time with a broad background and qualifications in information technology and systems, management and IT strategic planning. The technology provider is able to manage the day to day operation of IT in your organisation but you may need some assistance when it comes to moving it forward strategically. They do not necessarily have an information management background. Strategic planning needs to be done by you with a trusted adviser such as ourselves.
We choose not to devote ourselves to one company. This has benefits for us – and for you. You gain from a raft of experience built up over many years, from our contacts and templates.
The VirtualCIO™ service is carried out by senior resources with over 20 years senior level experience in IT and business. We pride ourselves in being able to build and retain good relationships with service providers and internal staff.
