While a consultant provides one-off support, many organizations require consistant, ongoing operational support with their technology. The fractional CIO role provides a number of advantages over a typical consultant role, some of which include:
Internal Technology Leadership
Reduced cost compared to a full-time role
In-house technology Support
Longer Term Planning Opportunities
Cyber Security Analysis and Review
Business Intelligence and Analytics
Fractional, or part-time, employees are exceptionally qualified professionals who share their time and services among various companies. A fractional employee may work in-house, similar to an internal employee, but for a fraction of the time of a full-time, in-house employee.
Fractional staffing enables businesses, who wouldn’t otherwise have the budget, to get the expertise of experienced professionals at a fraction of the price of hiring full-time employees. As companies do not have to provide training or incur costs of additional employee expenses (benefits, leave pay, or holidays) for fractional hires, resources are freed up to invest in other areas of the business.
