It seems like the world has shifted into this weird (or perhaps Futuristic) “Everything you can Think of” as a service model. With shared resources and resource pooling happening in a variety of industries from rental properties and vacation stays, to ride-sharing, and rental cars, technology is changing almost all areas where goods and services are exchanged. But now the IT industry is adapting to the change as well.
Businesses need to effectively reduce costs: The need to leverage technology effectively while controlling costs isn’t going away, for businesses nationwide. It seems like there is a growing trend where Organizations partner with professional services firms specifically for the purpose of technical expertise needed for planning and building technology products and services.
This is where Virtual CIO (VCIO) services come into play. An entire team of Tech Experts -VCIO services are an affordable and effective way to fill the CIO role without the need for a full-time, in-house CIO. It’s much more cost-effective to have a team of experts on standby (ready to assist as needed), than it is for an organization to have a full-time CIO internally (he takes a paycheck even when his services weren’t needed as much. However, If you have a good CIO in mind, and you’re generous-we are not opposed to your decision in providing him with a nice salary. He deserves a financial cushion. He’s-probably worked hard to get to his position.
A Chief Information Officer (CIO) has the responsibility of applying appropriate technology to help the company achieve its business objectives. As one of the highest-ranking executive members within a company, the chief information officer (CIO) is responsible for managing and implementing computer and information technology systems. Depending on the size of the business, their distinctive role and contributions can promote or propel the organization to success. As the landscape shifts to respond to current needs and upcoming trends, CIO roles are more focused on the information technology (IT) impact on all aspects of the organization and the role of data on productivity. Larger businesses pay out large salaries to their CIOs in certain cases- which can range upwards of $150,000 – $250,000+ per year.
It seems like IT Service Providers have started to earn a bad name in the IT Industry. Some complaints we’ve heard are worse or more severe than others. Some are intentionally malicious, and others are not. Many small businesses have complained about the same issues from a variety of different service providers throughout the IT marketplace. Race is Different.
Businesses have complained about outsourced CIOs (VCIOs) for:
1. Either high price (or pricing doesn’t match service provided)
2. Slow response times.
While other complaints do happen, these seem to be the biggest issues. These issues can happen for a variety of different reasons. Most commonly- it seems like it’s due to the lack of service delivery complexity. The Business IT Support Services provider was a one-man shop in these cases. This is the ineffective way many different IT Consultants handle service distribution and service delivery in today’s marketplace. Race is Different.
We already know all about many of the service-related problems in the IT Support Industry. We're on a mission to resolve these problems, effectively and strategically, one client at a time.
Race is different because we run a platform-style business that enables us to adapt to fluctuations in service demand and business requirements. Since we aren’t a 2-person company, we can offer reasonable Service Delivery. Our internal core team is responsible for systems management, monitoring, and help desk activities. We staff field engineers throughout the country to help our clients with onsite services and projects. Our core team interacts strategically with the field engineers, in order to effectively respond to projects or new clients.
There are many ways in which VCIO services help enterprises budget more efficiently. An effective virtual CIO will take the time to understand your organization’s core goals and help you accomplish those goals by creating a plan, or Technology Roadmap, that syncs your goals, needs, and expectations with the right technology to meet them.
VCIOs also can help you cut operating costs throughout your enterprise without hindering operations. To hire an on-staff CIO in the DC metro area , you need a six-figure budget just to cover salary, then add benefits, bonuses, and IT staff to execute your CIO’s strategic plans and actual IT expenses. With a VCIO, you spend a fraction of that money and still get an entire team of technology experts on call whenever you need them.
Another great advantage of having a team of technology gurus on your side is consultative and advisory conversations. Not only do you can ask if a potential technology investment is right for your business but VCIOs are constantly learning and advising what works good with your business goals. This creates a two-way conversation that will only enhance your enterprise’s efficiency without making unnecessary investments.
This is kind of like “Tomato versus Tomato. The two service models are not mutually exclusive, and one can be a tenant of the other. Managed Services are more inclined to be proactive in nature. VCIO services are not necessarily reactive, but their service delivery model can adapt to become a little more reactive, based on the requirements of the client organization.
Either service model can be utilized effectively within a small to medium-sized business as well as in an enterprise-scale organization. And both services have some adaptability. The good bet is to move beyond the identification of the term and get into the discussion of what your business actually needs!

A virtual Chief Information Officer is a service designed to offer the same role that an internal Chief Information Officer would have. This would include Technology Strategy and planning, Network Architecture and planning, as well as the implementation of cybersecurity aspects. An additional part of this role is that it is significantly more communication-dependent than a standard network technician. The CIO will need to hop on board meetings at times, propose changes, and interface with management teams if they may need to interact with the technical department in some way.
Managed Services and VCIO have some overlap- but there are also a few differences. Most Service Providers offering Managed Services can offer VCIO-level services. These companies will oversee and proactively manage a variety of different services for the organizations they support. VCIO offerings are more planning and strategic consulting services, and managed services are typically management of one segment of service which is already up and running. Some of these services may intersect with a VCIO offering.
A VCIO Would Decide which email service to use, which VoIP system to run, and which cybersecurity services to go with. The Managed Services will be responsible for proactively monitoring and managing Email-Services, Manage-VOIP-Systems or Phone Systems, Manage Cybersecurity Services and Manage Cloud services to name a few. A VCIO Service can act as a tenant of the Managed service-or it can be external- it varies from one business to another.
This particular Service can be offered outside of a monthly-charged basis. But in certain cases, a monthly service agreement is the right fit. Give us a call and we can discuss your use-case of the service and your business needs.
