What is a Fractional CIO?

A fractional CIO serves as the head of technology for your company. Unlike a full-time CIO, a fractional CIO offers consulting services to evaluate your current IT methods, create strategic IT goals, and implement new technology processes on a flexible, contract basis.

Fractional CIOs can range from a single consultant to a team of experienced IT professionals. Most companies work with an established business technology firm to get the most from fractional CIO services. Fractional CIO consulting with a technology firm gives you access to a network of experienced technology professionals, rather than just one consultant.

What Does a Fractional CIO Do?

The main role of a fractional CIO is to provide expert guidance on technology for your company, such as designing IT procedures and recommending software. They also offer suggestions for business technology that improves your business.

It’s their job to stay up-to-date on the latest industry trends, including new technology products and services.

If an exciting new software hits the market, your fractional CIO can tell you if it’s a good fit for your business.

Why Would Your Business Need a Fractional CIO?

Many businesses need help implementing effective and affordable IT processes but don’t have the budget to hire a full-time CIO.

Fractional CIO consulting gives you access to an IT professional with the experience to provide technology advice and help make executive-level decisions on an as-needed basis. With this option, you won’t have the expense of hiring a full-time CIO.

If your business needs IT expertise but doesn’t have the budget for an in-house CIO, a fractional CIO may be right for you.
