CIO Solutions


Extraordinary Small Businesses



There may be times when you find your existing IT staff needs help for a specific project or implementation, for IT support coverage or for consulting on the latest technologies. It’s important to look for someone who will listen first and help you make good decisions. You want a consulting company that fully understands the direction you want to take and that will make recommendations based not only on your current needs but on anticipated future needs. POWERNET CIO Consulting Solutions works in the management structure to assist where it will give you the greatest leverage and provides advice and skills you need to get where you want to go quickly, on-schedule, and on-budget.


The role of the modern CIO is changing. No longer simply focused on key IT infrastructure, the new CIO is concerned with corporate data, the convergence of business requirements, and available marketplace technologies. Faced with a flood of new technology and managed services residing outside the walls of the enterprise, today's CIO is taking on a more substantial role in strategic vendor management. The days of large internal IT groups with application developers on hand have passed, as most organizations opt for leveraging a best-of-breed combination of external vendors.

To support this change, CIOs are building teams of business-literate liaisons to work closely with corporate stakeholders to match business needs with evolving marketplace technologies. The CIO is building a fabric of solutions, focusing on the enterprise data layer that enables accurate and timely data to flow to executives and key stakeholders in order to support faster and better decision making. To fully commit to this wave of change, the CIO has become engrossed in mobile technologies, supporting the overall shift to a more portable workforce. Managing your information technology operations can be a challenge. But sometimes the challenge is just a temporary situation, with typical scenarios such as these:

  • You are “between” CIOs and need an experienced IT and management expert to keep things running properly until you can fill the position.
  • You are the CIO, but there’s not enough time in the day to simultaneously and effectively manage your day-to-day tactical and strategic efforts.
  • You simply need a trusted IT advisor to join your team on a temporary or interim basis for some project-specific work.
  • You need a technology analysis – our team of experts seek out any flaws in your current IT system, in order to develop a strategy to streamline your business processes
  • You need to manage a technology team for an installation – we install a unique IT plan, using tactical vendor partnerships and strategic planning, making sure your current IT challenges are met with the right solutions
  • You need IT administration & management – we develop and recommend teams, structure, security plans and disaster recovery protection of your business needs

You can’t just throw hardware, software or dollars at the problem. It’s more than just “keeping the lights on.” You need someone to manage your information technology (IT) from a business perspective.

IT’s not about the technology. IT’s about the business. That’s why POWERNET offers the CIO Services program. CIO Services from POWERNET can provide both tactical and strategic support to business leaders and CIOs who need an extra set of hands. Or, for businesses that have a temporary gap in their IT leadership, our interim CIO services can provide the complete day-to-day CIO function on a short- or medium-term basis.

Delivering Strategic and Tactical Support for Business and IT Executives
The POWERNET CIO Services are for business and IT leaders who need trusted, expert “boots on the ground” to help run their IT operations. To that end, the CIO Services goals are to:

  • Take the weight of IT management and operations off your shoulders, so you can focus on the business
