Real-CIO Consulting

Large enterprises can justify a large technical staff led by a seasoned CIO.  Most cannot.  We want to help by providing consulting services on a short-term or long-term basis driven by your business requirements.

Blogging and Writing

Education is a key element to a CIOs success.  A CIO must constantly be researching new technologies, honing new skills, and expanding experiences.  We provide blogs with useful, real world experiences and opinions.  Most will include humorous anecdotes, because let's face it, users do some funny things.  If you have a topic you would like us to cover, contact us with your suggestion.  If you would like us to write an article for your publication or speak at your event, please contact us and let us know.  Our rates are reasonable - sometimes free!
