Clare Computer Solutions (CCS), a professional services firm providing IT solutions for companies in the San Francisco Bay area since 1990, has been providing Virtual CIO services since 2004.

Nearly all companies have an IT infrastructure of some type.  As a company grows larger, it becomes necessary to make arrangements to have that technology supported – whether by an ad hoc (break-fix) service, or through an ongoing proactive support arrangement.

These support solutions are tactical and will keep the company running and leverage many benefits for its day-to-day operations, but what about long-range forward-thinking strategic support? 

In large enterprises, a Chief Information Office (CIO) may be responsible for all operations and strategy for the company’s technology infrastructure.  As technology is further integrated into the business operations, this increases strategic technology discussions as well. A CIO would understand the company’s growth plans and be involved in mapping out initiatives to ensure that the technology selected and implemented meets their needs as it grows.

The CIO is also involved in the IT budgeting process. An IT budget will take into account the ongoing costs of maintaining the IT Infrastructure and include technology refreshes and anticipated projects. By having a detailed yearly IT budget, there are far fewer unanticipated IT expenditures to adversely affect cash flow. Also, having orderly plans for refreshes and IT projects enable these to occur with minimal disruption to the operations of the business.

The challenge for many businesses is that they can’t afford a full-time CIO. They may not fully understand how not having this type of technological expertise on hand will impede their growth. Clare Computer Solutions (CCS) provides CIO-level services (Virtual CIO) as part of our NetCentral Managed Services Program. This closes the loop to encompass tactical AND strategic support for your company’s IT Infrastructure. This includes IT budget planning, strategic advice, and planning for all IT initiatives.
