Companies need technology to be competitive or they risk falling behind. Conversely the tremendous opportunities presented by new digital technologies require a different approach and the right leadership. The problem is many companies can’t afford to hire the technology leaders (CIOs) that the largest companies trust to drive competitiveness, differentiation and growth.
That is until now… introducing DigitalCIOs, a part-time CIO offering for businesses that want to harness the full potential of technology. For a fraction of the cost of a full-time CIO, any business can have an IT leader join their executive team to lead their technology strategy and oversee execution.
