All companies need their computer network to operate and evolve in a way that aligns as closely as possible with their business strategy. In larger enterprises, this is the responsibility of the Chief Information Officer (CIO), a senior executive with the IT background to have a broad perspective on the current capabilities and future direction of computer technology but who also has the business experience to know how to apply information technology to maximize the business value of the corporate network. Smaller companies are often unable to maintain a full-time CIO. Other organizations are searching for candidates to fill this position. In either case, the absence of an individual who can act as the go-to person for strategic planning and high-level IT management can lead to bad decisions that require expensive network makeovers or lead to long-term competitive disadvantage.

Progent offers the part-time or temporary services of a seasoned CIO with decades of experience in technology management, development, operations management, and business consulting for organizations ranging from Big 4 firms to dot-com startups to state government agencies. These senior consultants can provide key services for small business or enterprise clients, offering strategic direction to help businesses select and maintain IT solutions that are appropriate for their current situation and that can serve as a solid foundation for your future growth. Progent's part-time CIO services provide financial leverage to organizations trying to optimize the impact of their IT investment but who are unable or unwilling to add another executive-level position to their head count. Because Progent is vendor-neutral, with a large staff of engineers certified to support all major operating systems, networking technologies, and application platforms, Progent is in a unique position to provide unbiased recommendations along with expert technical help for creating IT solutions that fit the special requirements of your business.
