Business and technology are intertwined as never before, and technology leadership is in high demand. The best technology leaders have strong business backgrounds, technical expertise and the ability to lead strategic teams toward meeting organizational goals. Finding the right leader, whether a Chief Information Officer (CIO), Chief Technology Officer (CTO), Chief Information Security Officer (CISO) Advisor, or Vice President of IT, is not something that should be rushed, but neither should an organization go too long without filling these crucial roles. Thus, they need an interim solution to replace their lack of an executive.
