Biannual Virtual CIO Meetings Biannual Virtual CIO meetings ensure your technology aligns with your company goals. DWD's managed services clients are assigned a personal Virtual CIO (Chief Information Officer) to their team. The Virtual CIO, working with your lead engineer, performs the same functions as a conventional CIO. Those duties include formulating strategic IT goals, planning the IT budget, analyzing and reworking business processes and facilitating technology changes. The Virtual CIO will help maintain your IT infrastructure -- keeping the lights on -- but will also provide more-forward looking services. For example, a Virtual CIO can work with you to plan a technology roadmap and identify opportunities to use new technology tools. If your business lacks an IT department or has a limited IT staff, wider decision-making authority and technology deployment responsibilities can be granted to the Virtual CIO.
