Because IT plays such a large role in most companies today, many businesses choose to employ a Chief Information Officer (CIO). A CIO can develop and lead strategic plans for keeping up with current technology and implementing new technology efficiently throughout the organization.

However, not every organization needs a full time CIO. Virtual CIOs and/or Part-Time CIOs as part of an IT Managed Services Agreement are becoming more and more popular as they allow businesses of any size to reap the benefits of this strategic position.
