A virtual chief technology officer (vCTO) is like an on-call CTO. A vCTO provides technical strategy, guidance and leadership to keep your IT costs in check, and develop synergies between technology, internal processes and business objectives.

When your business and technology needs don’t justify the expense of a dedicated senior technology C-suite member, a part-time executive can ensure that your technology is helping you accomplish your business goals.

The Technical Leadership Your Business Needs for Growth

Whether technology is at the core of your business or plays more of a supporting role, an Essendis vCTO will provide the strategic technical thinking, planning and know-how to :

Assess and supervise system design and infrastructure to maximize efficiencies, scalability and profitability.

Identify and remediate outdated technology, software and more to avoid technical debt.

Evaluate, track, monitor and analyze technology performance data.

Structure and coordinate with internal technology teams.

Educate internal stakeholders and staff on IT Service Management processes, system design and project management.
