DAG Tech Virtual CTO (vCTO Services – Chief Technology Officer) Services
Technology is integral to every organization’s success. It is the foundation of core services, communication, and in building and managing valuable information. It is used to drive growth, to rise above competitors, to optimize processes, and to reach a global audience.
In order to unlock your business’ potential, a highly effective and competitive technology strategy is paramount, more so now than ever. In most small and medium businesses (SMB), technology leadership, expertise, and experience is severely lacking. Most SMB select the wrong technology, incorrect deployment schedules, and incorrect vendors and services. Just like enterprise, a great CTO is needed by these organizations to maximize results by the leveraging technology to its full advantage.
A full-time CTO is far too costly for SMB. For this reason, outsourcing CTO functions to a highly capable and well positioned technology firm, such as DAG Tech, provides great results at a fraction of the cost.
With DAG Tech’s vCTO Services, an experienced and dedicated CTO can be available to you virtually; via phone, email, and video conference.
