Softsource Announces New Virtual CIO (vCIO) Service

Softsource Announces New Virtual CIO (vCIO) Service
February 24, 2016

Softsource, a leading ICT systems integrator providing specialist Technology Solutions, Professional Services and Data Centre Services, today announced their new Business Advisory service - ‘Virtual CIO’ (vCIO).

vCIO services provide mid-size businesses with the expertise and value of a technology advisor without the cost of an in-house CIO, focussing on Business Transformation, Security and Compliance, Data Intelligence and Process Improvement.

Digital Transformation is driving technology changes across every industry and in today’s hyper competitive world, having the ability to evolve and adapt is vital to success. Through vCIO services, Softsource works with businesses, to create a technology plan that outlines where their IT environments should be in one year, two and three years. The service includes a review of internal systems and processes, as well as IT Project Management and Business Transformation.

By integrating Softsource’s experience gained from network and managed service projects with organisations across a wide range of industries, Softsource executes a strategic plan to ensure the most efficient technologies are being implemented that are “cloud enabled” where appropriate, adhering to the highest security standards and best practice methodologies.

With a results-based mind-set, the vCIO services include on-site as well as virtual support and are available on short term, part time or semi-full time contracts.

“Softsource is very excited about the launch of this new service offering. We believe that it will truly give our customers a unique advantage when it comes to their technology choices and approach to planning for the future” said Pablo Garcia-Curtis, General Manager at Softsource. With vCIO, we hope to demystify the future for our clients. We believe that the opportunity and productivity gains that Cloud and SaaS applications provide are now well understood by most organisations. The roadmap of how to “get there” however is less clear.

By providing a pragmatic and modern approach to IT strategic planning, we believe we can help businesses drive innovation and agility into their operations, by facilitating informed decision-making, ensuring roles and responsibilities around key areas such as security & compliance are well defined and implemented.”
