Fractional Chief Information Officer
What is a Chief Information Officer (CIO)?
A CIO, or Chief Information Officer, is a senior executive responsible for managing and implementing the information and computer technologies of an organisation. The CIO’s primary role is to ensure that IT aligns with and supports the company’s business goals. This encompasses technology deployment, network and system management, data and cybersecurity, and digital transformation strategies. The CIO often works closely with the CTO (Chief Technology Officer) but focuses more on internal IT infrastructure and technology needed to support the organisational processes.
