Who is the CIO / CTO in Your Organization

With the importance of technology in every part of business, having an executive who can work with the business to make sure that your technology strategy supports the business strategy is vital.

 For many small and mid-sized companies, the amount of strategic work required does not warrant a full time employee CIO.

 These organizations either pay a full time employee to do a part time job or let less qualified managers attempt to fill a role  above their skill level.

Companies without skilled IT management consistently fail to align their IT strategy and spending with critical business goals.

The Technology sales representative will logically emphasize the areas of their solution which fits your challenge and often fail to recognize the areas which do not fit.



  1. Collaborate on your business goals and objectives and develop the  strategies to support them.
  2. Create the road map that will serve as the foundation for your planning and budgeting.
  3. Deliver ongoing consultation to the business for implementing new solutions that support the strategic  plan.

Profit = Revenue - costs

In a public service model the equation is slightly different

Service Level = Revenue - Costs


Systems analysts figure out how to use computers to get things done. They tell businesses and other organizations which computers and software to buy, and they decide how to get those tools to work together.

Computer systems analysts start their work by asking people what they need their computers to do. Then, they plan a computer system that can do those tasks well. A system can include many computers working together and different types of software and other tools.

After analysts understand what the system needs to do, they break down the task into small steps. They draw diagrams and charts to show how information will get into the computers, how that information will be processed, and how it will get to the people who need it. For example, analysts might decide how sales information will get into a store's computers and how the computer will add up the information in a way that makes it useful for store managers.

Analysts experiment with different computer system plans. They try various tools and steps until they find the system that is fastest, easiest, and costs the least.

Next, analysts decide which computers, software, and tools to buy. They also tell computer programmers how to make any new software that is needed. They give the programmers step-by-step instructions. Some analysts help make the software, too.

The main job for some systems analysts is getting computers to work together. They connect them into a network. Analysts decide how to get information from one computer to another. Many help people get data from the Internet.

After planning a system, analysts test it to make sure it works. They check to make sure that information is processed quickly and without mistakes. They also watch to see if the system is easy to use. Often, they have to change their plans to make the systems better.

Computer systems analysts work in offices or computer labs. Some work from home. Working on a computer for a long time can give these workers eye, back, or wrist problems.

Sometimes, these workers work long hours to get a project done on time.

Analysts usually work as part of a team.
