Dave Hartman was interviewed for an article, How to succeed as a fractional CIO, with CIO.com. The article focuses on outlining the disparities between a vCIO and a fractional CIO, enumerating the range of services provided by a fractional CIO, as well as highlighting the numerous advantages they offer.
“A professional services or fractional CIO who brings deep expertise and perspective in a particular industry can be an invaluable advisor to midmarket companies and organizations who can’t afford that specialized talent as a full-time hire,” Hartman says.
“With no pressure to recommend a specific system, vendor, hardware or software product, independent fractional CIOs can thoroughly analyze various options, test those options, and make decisions that best serve the organization,” Hartman says.
“A fractional CIO can function as a trusted advisor or, if truly independent and skilled in professional services, can play an accountable IT leadership role for the client, Hartman says. Additionally, this leader provides a level of experience and perspective that can be critical to successfully navigating situations, including digital transformation, software selection and implementation, as well as the launch of a new product or service offering, merger, acquisition activity, and more.”
