Fractional or Interim CIO/CTO
Smaller companies often cannot justify a full-time CIO/CTO yet find themselves in need of the experience and competitive advantages that position would bring. TPP's Fractional CIO/CTO is designed to meet this need by providing hands-on technical leadership on a part-time basis. We work with company owners and senior executives to identify gaps in IT strategy and capabilities and provide the leadership to close those gaps. Managing relatively lower cost engineers and technicians, the Fractional Leadership model affords small companies the most cost effective means to embracing information technology sooner rather than later
Medium to large companies may also find themselves with a void in technical leadership resulting from company or personal crises, transition or simply too much work at one time. The Interim CIO/CTO is geared to meet this need. In this capacity TPP offers technical leadership, architecture and operational engineering, staff augmentation and search/evaluation for a permanent CIO/CTO. Acting as a member of your extended management team TPP focuses on sustaining the business, achieving short-term business goals and on building an organization for the future. TPP will help design an engagement best suited to meet the client's specific needs and objectives.
