Life of a CIO, Chief Information Officer, Head of IT, and or basically the most knowledgeable IT person in the building on that day, is what I call being a responsible for your IT, go-to tech expert.
I am partner with Mark Duffy and we work with our clients to understand their IT systems, computers, servers and software applications, vendor management, outsourcing arrangements, backups, business continuity plans, disaster recovery, IT Project and IT budgets and the big bad word of IT Systems & Security – Cyber and Internal.
These are the multitude of areas that we bring our expertise to, but basically we provide that skill set that translates the techie jargon into common tongue so that organisations are not bamboozled with technical terms and technical “hogwash” they receive from their vendors and suppliers and IT Systems.
Our Week so Far
This week our work focused with the scoring the tender process for a Managed Information System, development of a business continuity plan, reviewed the 6 month action plan to address the IT issues with another client, had a meeting with the CEO, Board member, Risk Officer for another client to assist them with dealing with the regulatory requirements of IT, and today is only Wednesday.
Thursday will be a catching up with paperwork, nobody said that having a virtual or cloud based IT platform, (we use Office365) has removed all the paperwork from an office.
