For many companies, hiring a full-time Chief Information Officer (CIO) or IT Director is an unrealistically expensive option. On the other hand, having someone with a wealth of experience in a senior position overseeing your IT strategy is a hugely important part of its success
Balancing need with budget
One major obstacle to hiring a senior IT Director is that much of the time needed to concentrate on IT strategy is intermittent. There will be times when a CIO needs to really focus on IT procurement, analysis, budgeting, regulation etc, and other times when the job does not demand so much of their time. By hiring a Virtual CIO, you will only be paying for the skills and experience of a senior IT Director when you actually need it, so you receive the same level of support for a much smaller investment.

The benefit to your company is the skills and experience of a CIO, but without the costs involved.
