StrategITcom, LLC (Brandon, MS) recently launched its 'CTOaaS' offering for fractional CTO services. These services are designed to provide organizations with technical direction and leadership on a "pay-as-you-go" basis.
As explained by the company, unlike larger consulting services which lock a company into long-term expensive contracts, the CTOaaS services are designed to provide retainer-based CTO services for companies that are not quite large enough for a full time CTO, to meet the following needs: to fill in on projects; to work with large procurement projects; to conduct ICT design projects for intelligent buildings; for white-space design, moves, and consolidation planning for data centers; and for similar services.
Customers can procure time in eight-hour fixed increments, with additional discounting provided to monthly fractional contracts.
“There are many companies out there with shorter term or incremental technology needs either as a one-off short-term engagement or as a continuous once a x-frequency service," says Carrie Goetz, Principal and CTO at StrategITcom. "These companies are a largely ignored segment of technology users. As a result, they end up bouncing around from project to project without continuity of resources or direction. For companies that want to find the right technology direction, we offer CTOaaS -- Chief Technology Officer-as-a-Service.”
For procurement, the CTOaaS service can provide oversight and recommendations ensuring that the right solution is being selected for a company’s needs. On projects, the service can be used to fill in for maternity or medical leaves, as an owner liaison between multiple vendors, "or just as a second pair of eyes," as stated by StrategITcom.
Per the company, "For companies starting out, the service provides technical and strategical direction and road maps to help companies use technology to their best advantage. All services provide continuity of talent. If you need a technology professional 8 hours a month, we are happy to accommodate those customers as they grow into full time needs."
Goetz adds, “We have worked extensively to build out our partner portfolio, with the express intention of fostering women in business. Our portfolio covers everything from cabling to cloud, with highly-efficient, modularly built, disaster-withstanding data centers, construction management software, security design and audit services, technical writing, and speaking engagements. Finder’s fees are always disclosed. We are committed to transparency with our customer base.”
