      What Is The Role OF A CTO?

      A chief technology officer (CTO) typically leads the strategy around the development of an organisation’s technology. This covers an organisation’s hardware, software and security, as well as the ongoing development of systems and adoption of new technologies.

      Approaching technology growth can be difficult. Getting advice from non-technical people within your organisation can give skewed results, as each individual will have different motivators and preferences. And in smaller organisations, where it’s common for IT managers to take on this role, there often isn’t the right experience to make fully-informed decisions.

      This is where a CTO figure is vital to provide impartial experience on what you require and how to execute changes in a scalable way according to your growth.

      Why Adopt Virtual CTO Services?

      A CTO is typically a highly-experienced IT professional. And their salary will typically reflect that.

      For smaller organisations, there isn’t really a budgetary option for this. But without this role, organisations (notably fast-growing start-ups) can make costly mistakes in their IT development’

      With this in mind, our virtual CTO services offer all the experienced advice of an in-house CTO but on a per-project or ad hoc frequency.

      Depending on the requirement, Akita’s consultants will take the time to understand every aspect of your company and your operational goals to guide you to the right recommendations.

      So you can utilise our expertise as you want it for as long as you need it.
