With a virtual CTO you can run your business with the peace of mind that you've got someone keeping track of technology trends, developments and threats.

As businesses become ever more digitised, your technology is no longer playing a supporting role - it's at the core of how you deliver your products & services to your customers.

As the boss you're responsible for everything, and when you're spread so thinly it's not possible to give everything the proper attention it deserves.


How Could I Benefit from Virtual CTO?

We understand that running a business is hard. You're juggling multiple roles every day depending on what gets thrown at you: It could be head of sales & marketing, head of finance, HR manager, customer service manager and now, more than ever head of Technology.

A Virtual CTO can help lighten your load and bring the following benefits:

Technology expertise on a PAYG basis
Fully flexible engagement
Instant connection to network of IT professionals
Wide range of technical experience
Translate the jargon from your technical suppliers

Our 6 Guiding Principles

Rather than being over-prescriptive in terms of technology strategy & tactics, we prefer to adhere to some high-level principles to help achieve the best outcomes for you and your business:

1. Simple is better than complicated - easier to maintain and explain
2. Open source over proprietary - prefer open standards to avoid vendor lock-in
3. Practical beats beautiful - great if you can have both, but if you can't practicality wins!
4. Flexible is better than rigid - opt for solutions that can change with your business
5. Micro over monolithic - smaller services are easier to modify, remove or add, and increase your agility
6. Continuous improvement - always on the lookout for opportunities to deliver a better service or experience

"Any intelligent fool can make things bigger, more complex, and more violent. It takes a touch of genius—and a lot of courage to move in the opposite direction.“

- E. F. Schumacher
