Chief Information Officer (CIO) Definition from

“The chief information officer (CIO) is a job title for the head of information technology within an organization. The CIO typically reports to the chief operations officer or the chief executive officer.

As information technology and systems have become more important, the CIO has come to be viewed in many organizations as a key contributor in formulating strategic goals.

Typically, a CIO is involved with analyzing and reworking existing business processes, with identifying and developing the capability to use new tools, with reshaping the enterprise’s physical infrastructure and network access, and with identifying and exploiting the enterprise’s knowledge resources. “

Part Time and Interim CIO

Many companies, especially small to mid-sized business would benefit greatly from the experience and leadership of a CIO, but do not want to commit to the costs full time. A part time CIO can reduce your IT risk, develop your existing IT staff, provide management resources and think strategically for you at a fraction of full time costs.
