Fractional CIO - CIO Advisory from Wicresoft

Wicresoft offer a CIO Advisory Service. Any company can benefit from this service, but it is particularly suited for organisations on a high-growth trajectory wishing to elevate or re-shape their IT strategy, accelerate digital transformation or implement a business change programme.

Even companies who are not on a high-growth trajectory may benefit from a CIO; they may be disorientated or without strategy and our CIO Advisory Service could help accelerate their trajectory.
