“Information technology and business are becoming inextricably interwoven. I don’t think anybody can talk meaningfully about one without the talking about the other.” -Bill Gates
Information technology was once something only big businesses had to worry about, but the evolution of technology has made IT a major part of medium and small businesses as well. This technology brings tremendous advantages to those that manage it well but many small to medium sized businesses find themselves needing more expertise than what their regular employees offer. Budget constraints could mean the reduction of existing IT staff also leaving technical support to suffer.
The Benefits of Virtual CIO

A Virtual CIO (Chief Information Officer) is not a just a consultant, but can actually offer you more than what a single IT manager does in many cases.
