Chief Information Officers
As the CIO or IT leader of a dynamic mid-tier business, your everyday role is about juggling a multitude of tasks without compromising. As the business's expectation of technology grows, so does the pressure on you to deliver a robust, reliable and high performing 'business as usual' - while somehow pioneering new business capabilities and implementing new, strategic technology investments. You bring a unique IT perspective to the business - but without the right level of team support, this unique perspective is too often frustrated by the needs of day-to-day IT management.
Now imagine having the time to focus on strategic IT. Imagine total support from an expert team. Imagine efficient, streamlined and accessible processes and applications. Imagine working with Acora.
Translating IT into business potential
Effective communication is an enormous part of your role. Your capacity to see the potential of new technologies means the CEO looks to you to advise and deliver strategic IT investments and smarter working: to translate the technology into real value, and communicate this value effectively to the board as they form their strategy. Your core strength is turning data into insight, and insight into strategic action. Battling to overcome scepticism in the business and using IT to remove organisational barriers are also significant responsibilities. In order to protect the competitive position of the business, you must lead IT thinking throughout the business culture, encouraging employees to embrace the unifying benefits of the right IT for a truly collaborative, global, productive working environment.
Talent deficit and budget restraints
Whether you directly manage an in-house IT team, delegate to an IT manager, or take sole responsibility for your business IT, delivering day-to-day functionality on top of all your other responsibilities requires a level of support that many businesses struggle to find. Talent is a major issue: shortage of the skills needed to innovate poses a major risk to mid-market businesses that have neither the resource to attract experts nor the time to invest in training. A lack of talent also compromises your time and strategic focus with day-to-day issues. Budget is always scarce, and enormous investments are required to constantly upgrade business IT.
