Guide to CIO Advisory Services – New White Paper
Reston, VA – October 23, 2012 – A new white paper entitled A Guide to CIO Advisory Servicesaddresses the growing trend of outsourcing all or portions of the Chief Information Officer function in small to midsize businesses (SMBs), as the complexity of information technology (IT) grows.
Developed by Brittenford Systems, the whitepaper identifies how CIO Advisory can improve the effectiveness of IT departments, along with four roles of the CIO: Infrastructure, Integration, Intelligence and Innovation. In addition, the next-generation CIO is described in the context of the 80/20 rule (Pareto Principle).
The question, how to choose a virtual CIO, is answered with a CIO Advisory Services Model that identifies strategy, domain expertise, resource augmentation and mentoring. Details on popular advisory services are provided, along with a CIO Advisory Services case study for a financial services firm.
“Given the growing interest in CIO Advisory Services, there is surprisingly little information available on the subject, so we decided to research and develop the topic for our clients and prospects,” states Ryan Risley, Managing Director of CIO Advisory Services for Brittenford Systems.
