Strategic Roadmapping and Planning

Understanding where your business is today with technology is vital in planning where you’ll go. You may already be paying for patching and anti-virus managed services, but you need a virtual Chief Information Officer (vCIO) who can truly design a strategy around your business that’s more than break-fix. As your vCIO, we can work with your company to assess your current state, identify strengths and weaknesses and make key decisions while helping you understand:

  • How well your technology is performing
  • If your business strategy is enabled by your technology
  • If your cybersecurity measures are adequate and up to date
  • How to leverage the cloud to its full advantage

  • Data inventory and opportunity analysis to build flexible dashboards
  • Report and dashboard training in Power BI to empower employees to build custom dashboards
