Fractional & Interim CIO
A simple solution to harnessing the skills of board-level IT experts without the burden of a full-time salary.
What is a fractional & interim Chief Information Officer (CIO)?
A chief information officer (CIO) is the company executive responsible for the management, implementation and usability of information and computer technologies.
A fractional & interim CIO is an experienced, senior technology executive who performs the role part-time for organisations – typically small and medium enterprises (SMEs) – that are in a position to start scaling their business.
How can a fractional & interim CIO help your organisation?
Using their experience, leadership skills and vision a fractional & interim CIO will work closely with your entire business – not just the IT department – to consider the interactions of people at every stage of the IT process.
This provides the foundation for them to work in partnership with you to develop a digital strategy that aligns with your business, allowing you to leverage technology that helps you achieve your goals.
A fractional & interim CIO that adopts a holistic approach to technology can provide your business with compelling, enterprise-wide benefits:
✓ Achieve KPIs
✓ Thought leadership
✓ Budget optimisation
✓ Closes leadership gaps
✓ Ongoing strategic guidance
✓ Collaborates with company leadership
✓ Develops, coaches and mentors IT staff
✓ Technology development and optimisation
✓ Reduced overheads compared to a full-time CIO

✓ Offers a competitive advantage by identifying outdated systems
When should my business consider a fractional & interim CIO?
SMEs rely on technology to operate and grow in today’s dynamic business environment. To harness its true potential requires the necessary resources and experience – something businesses of this size sometimes lack.
This growth is typically achieved through digital transformation – a rethinking of how an organisation uses technology, people and processes to improve business models. This is an essential process for any business that wants to remain competitive in today’s dynamic digital economy – but it requires collaboration between C-suite and the rest of the business for it to be success.
These technology requirements expose SMEs to a range of challenges that a fractional & interim CIO is well-placed to address:
A gap in IT expertise
Lack of strategic vision and leadership
Uncertainty about the direction of technology
Concerns about security posture and vulnerabilities
