Simply put, a fractional CIO is a consultant who helps you align your information technology with your business goals.
Your company might be too small to need a full-time CIO, but wading through all the elements of technology can be complicated. How do you know you’re selecting the right tools?

Will your information security policies and standards truly protect your business and your clients? Are your employees haphazardly buying and implementing technology tools you can’t control?
Here’s the good news: a lack of time, knowledge, or internal resources doesn’t have to keep you from developing and enacting technology strategies that serve you well!
