An IT Director or Chief Technology Officer (CTO) is a technical expert who works with the board level or senior management team to deliver industry-leading solutions to key business challenges. CloudTech24 offers a Virtual IT Director and Virtual CTO service to ensure your organisation can leverage this expertise as an outsourced service.

For many small and medium sized businesses (SME/SMB), having a full-time staff member in-house to lead the direction of IT operations is simply not feasible given the associated costs and expertise. In order to develop a technology vision and manage business goals and maintain an effective IT strategy, there still needs to be a focus on this role within the business, this can be obtainable by leveraging a Virtual IT Director or Virtual CTO.
