What Does a Virtual CTO Do for Your Company?

By A. Baker, Inside Sales Specialist

Virtual CTO = Trusted Advisor = An Essential IT Service!

Technology advances are continually changing. Is your business leveraging these changes to deliver a true competitive advantage?

While the position of CTO (Chief Technology Officer) is a key role for any business, not every organization warrants a full-time person in this position. Many smaller businesses, from a cost perspective, may not employ a full-time CTO because the question they ask is “can our business afford this overhead?”

Small to midsized organizations compete with much larger , well financed companies. However, they may lack the internal resources, especially when it comes to technology management, required to be competitive.

At Bryley Systems, we believe that SMBs (Small and Midsized Businesses) are the backbone of our economy and our prosperity. And although it’s common for SMB employees to wear multiple hats, many wouldn’t be comfortable leading the technology operations. Bryley Systems has created a way for SMBs to adopt a CTO into their organization without the associated overhead cost and responsibilities normally associated with that role.

A Virtual CTO from Bryley will bridge the gap between the business vision and the more technical decisions needed to be made to support those goals. Bryley has a 30-year proven track record across many business sectors. We’re able to communicate in a language that is easily understandable to ensure that our clients can access the technology required for critical business initiatives.

Bryley’s services are at the forefront of technology and are backed by solid experience. Our tailored offerings are focused from client to client, depending upon their IT needs and business planning.

When and why would you need to hire a Virtual CTO?

In an age where the technology landscape is moving faster than ever, having a clear strategic direction and solid plans for execution are mission critical.

Virtual CTO (vCTO) or Virtual CIO (vCIO) professional service partners provide cost effective expertise and solutions that enable competitive advantage via technology.

Basics of vCTO services include working closely with senior management to:

  • Establish governance process and clear direction
  • Evaluate the “As-Is” IT infrastructure
  • Determine the optimal “To-Be” IT infrastructure and requirements to meet company goals
  • Establish, prioritize and assign time-frames to the list of IT initiatives that enable achievement of stated business goals
  • Effectively execute to plans

A successful vCTO partnership yields results and accolades:

  • A vCTO service pays for itself multiple times over as important initiatives get proper attention and the resources necessary to accomplish goals, at a reasonable cost
  • “We now recognize we’re not technology experts and are each best focusing on our individual areas of expertise!” This Bryley client can now utilize people and skillsets where they are most needed and to their fullest advantage.
  • Identifies when existing IT systems approach capacity and prevents failures
  • Evaluation from a happy Bryley client: “Our vCTO service ensures advanced
    planning of technologies necessary to support future company growth that may not otherwise be realized.”

What would having your own vCTO service mean for your organization? In 3 words: Peace of Mind!
