Strategic Services or Virtual CTO
At a glance
Depending on your circumstances and goals, we may at times provide you with the equivalent of a Chief Technology Officer. It gives you access to serious experience and specialist thinking. If yours is a small to medium business with big ambitions, a “virtual” CTO could be a very smart investment.
Our CTOs are both technologists and business analysts. They know the technology inside out and keep pace with important developments. Equally, however, they can tell how the technology may (or may not) support your company’s goals. We will help your company to grow and also help you avoid spending money on technology you don’t need.
CTO services are also essential if you’re consolidating one or more businesses or preparing for a merger/acquisition.
In such instances, we generally provide an IT audit against your company’s business objectives. This includes a full review of your network followed by recommendations on IT changes that will ensure you can meet your business objectives.
When new projects appear, in many cases the initial planning will be included in your fixed monthly CTO fee – allowing you to move forward with new plans quickly (and giving you confidence that projects are not being created simply to generate revenue for us). Your Fisheye CTO will also guide you through backup disaster recovery and business continuity – so you can sleep well at night!
Our CTO services are customised to your priorities and budget. Because our business model is based on long-term relationships, you can count on a service that benefits your business.
- The big picture is reviewed constantly
- An independent, expert view of your IT needs
- You are freed to run the business, not the IT
- New projects are implemented quickly
- Vast experience at a price that makes sense for your business
Who it’s for
Any organisation for whom IT plays a critical, strategic role – where future success depends in part on the quality of IT-related decisions you make today. Typically, you will employ between 10 and 200 people or more, but there are exceptions to that rule.
CTO services are included as part of the Managed Services programme. They are also available on a one-off basis, such as for an audit or a significant, non-recurring project. We can help you decide the most appropriate option for your business.
