Because Good Technology Means Better Business
Introducing Virtual CIO Services…
NEED: Design, build, and maintain secure technology infrastructure for business growth.
CHALLENGE: Today’s ever-changing technology landscape, increasing compliance requirements, and growing information security risks are creating critical challenges for businesses of all sizes. Due to financial and staffing constraints, organizations in the SMB market are at an even greater disadvantage to identify and implement the right technologies for their businesses, or obtain strategic consulting in a cost-effective way. This is typically the role of a Chief Information Officer (CIO). Of course, most small businesses (and even some mid-sized businesses) are not able to employ a full-time CIO of their very own.
SOLUTION: Introducing Virtual CIO Services from BrainWave Consulting Company, L.L.C., an independent consultancy delivering technology-based business solutions for the SMB market, specializing in infrastructure design/management, information security and IT operations.
RESULT: Business and technology leaders in the SMB market now have access to the same caliber of planning, processes, people and technology that drive the success of large enterprise organizations – at a fraction of the cost. This allows them to perform the following:
- assessment of technology operations, information security, staff sourcing strategy, and costs
- identification of technology-based business risks, and development of remediation plans
- development of policies and procedures for operational discipline and efficiency relevant to SMB
VALUE: Organizations in the SMB market face the same challenges as large enterprises do, but typically lack access to proven technology and staffing. Employing extensive experience and strong industry relationships, BrainWave Consulting Company, L.L.C. works with business owners and IT leaders to help them establish an effective technology and information security strategy, ensure alignment between IT and the business, effectively manage change, identify and mitigate security risks, streamline IT operations, design and implement scalable platforms and deliver robust business solutions that facilitate sustained business growth. We provide our clients with the necessary skills, experience, guidance and other resources that allow them to cost-effectively implement critical solutions and services that would otherwise be out of their reach.
By keeping organizations focused on the four pillars of successful operation, we help to ensure that they are able to maximize their investments, while controlling costs:
- Planning: Identifying not only current needs, but anticipating and preparing for future needs in a way that minimizes costs and risks, and enhances flexibility and alignment.
- People: The right people, with the right skills, in the right place – employees and partners – aligned to the current and future needs of the organization.
- Processes: Implementation of effective processes and controls in support of efficient operations, information security, software development, and regulatory compliance objectives.
- Tools: Design, deployment and maintenance of robust, secure, and scalable technology infrastructure and software applications which can flexibly support ever-changing business needs.
The bottom line is that business and technology leaders in the SMB market can now benefit from the same caliber of planning, practices, infrastructure and other resources that drive the success of large enterprise organizations – at a fraction of the cost. This opens the door to the successful implementation of a wide range of complex technologies such as Virtualization, Cloud Computing, Voice over IP (VoIP), Unified Communications (UC), CRM, ERP and many, many others, and to address Disaster Recovery and Business Continuity – without breaking the bank.
