CIO as a Service Technology is essential for modern business. Having a network means having someone to manage it. Enter the chief information officer (CIO). Working side by side with other executives, CIOs help lead a company into the future: designing, implementing, and managing a network while ensuring solid security, top-notch user experience, and improved growth. All these require continual research, close vendor partnerships, an innovative mindset, strong business sense—and, of course, time. Sounds costly? It is. Glassdoor estimates the average salary of a CIO at a whopping $166,615 (source)! For small and medium businesses (SMBs), this isn’t always within reach. The cost of not having a CIO, however, is just as high. Without the right technology for your company, customers disappear, safety issues arise, and revenue stagnates. So how do SMBs bridge the gap between what they need and what they can afford?
