You might be wondering what a Virtual CIO or Virtual CTO (or vCIO) is and why you could need one. First, the titles are very similar. The CIO is the Chief Information Officer, and the CTO is the Chief Technology Officer. The two titles carry very similar job responsibilities and are often interchangeable. The CIO is responsible for developing and implementing the strategic vision for information technology across the organization. Any and all businesses that utilize technology in some way can benefit from this expertise. Not all businesses can justify the cost of a full-time CIO.
