What do we do?

IT EVALUATION THAT DRIVES RETURN ON INVESTMENT

Knowing where you stand on IT is the first step to improving. There are countless reasons why an outside perspective could be useful for business leaders seeking to understand how their IT platforms and organizations compare to their potential capabilities and those of their competitors:

IT due diligence prior to mergers and acquisitions

Failure/non-compliance root cause analysis

Budget preparation: "what IT should propose"

Budget review: "where to push IT back"

Preparation for transition

Vulnerability scan

Review of tools and skill sets in use

Insourcing vs. outsourcing analysis Buying vs. building software analysis

VIRTUAL CIO SERVICES

EXPERT TECH LEADERSHIP WHEN AND HOW YOU NEED IT

Experienced IT leaders for flexible consulting projects.

Technology has never been more strategic than it is for modern businesses. Because IT skills are so different from what they possess, most CEOs and boards of directors want an experienced leader at the top of their IT organization. Experience is critical in IT decisions, from architecture to culture, staffing, and vendor negotiations. These crucial IT strategy decisions will impact, for better or worse, all of your businesses for years to come... The spectrum of impact of right versus wrong decisions is so extremely broad that it's no surprise that many businesses hire CIOs. and full-time CTO for this role, and often conduct national or global searches to find the right candidate. Compensation packages have increased significantly in recent years as the strategic importance of the role has increased much faster than the pool of experienced leaders. But what should companies do that can't afford the increased compensation packages that experienced C-level IT leaders demand, despite having equal needs for these consulting services? Most make concessions, either accepting less experience and/or higher compensation costs. Whatever the approach, it's challenging for companies with limited budgets to get the expertise they really need for these critical decisions and responsibilities. For organizations in this situation, we have designed our Virtual CIO Service (also known as virtual CTO, vCIO, vCTO, fractional CIO, fractional CTO, fCIO, fCTO, part-time CIO, part-time CTO)

WHAT IS A VIRTUAL CIO AND WHAT DOES IT DO?

A virtual CIO provides IT leadership and strategic guidance to an organization on a part-time or part-time basis, often remotely or virtually. They are experienced and successful C-level IT leaders who, in their virtual capacity, offer innovation, strategic planning, negotiation, supplier management and mentoring services to small and medium-sized businesses at prices more affordable than the cost of a CIO or CTO of full time.

CYBERSECURITY EXPERIENCE FOR YOUR BOARD OF DIRECTORS

Information security expertise to enable your board of directors to fulfill their fiduciary duties. Regulators have proposed requiring continuous disclosures of cybersecurity coverage and information protection from all boards of directors. Even for private organizations, this is a legitimate need. Is your organization ready? Cyber risks are among the most pressing and likely disruptions to organizations in our highly threatened modern society. Unfortunately, due to a shortage of qualified board-level leaders with cybersecurity experience, most boards have limited or no coverage of this key skill set on their team. Our service offers organizations an affordable way to leverage this critical expertise.

DIGITAL TRANSFORMATION

What is Digital Transformation about?

Business model change.

Digital transformation is a buzzword that is often confused and abused in popular media. Articles in business magazines cover a broad spectrum, stating at one extreme that if companies do not digitally transform they will become extinct within the next five years. At the opposite extreme we find claims that the Digital Transformation has been completed with the installation of a new marketing platform. For ECMDynamics, Digital Transformation is a fundamental review of an organization's business model in light of the new potential of technology.

We find ways to use technology and data to:

Create new sources of income

Accelerate existing revenue streams

Expand your target market

Taking market share from competitors who cannot match your new capabilities

Being a successful Digital Transformation consultant requires first Imagining and then Executing a Technology vision tailored to your organization that:

Automate everything that does not require human intervention,

Provides descriptive and predictive analytics to the organization to obtain real-time information and

Drive a personalized and efficient customer experience
