Too often companies bring in a CTO or CIO later than they should. Most companies are more tech-enabled than they realize. Waiting too long means missed opportunities and losing time. Why does this happen? Good CIOs and CTOs are expensive. A false start or a wrong hire delays the process even more. Bringing in a Factional CIO solves many issues. With Texas CIO Partners, you get all the benefits of a seasoned CIO or CTO at a fraction of the cost.
