What Is a Fractional CIO?
A fractional CIO (Chief Informational Officer), also known as a part-time or interim CIO (Chief Information Officer), is an executive role within an organization responsible for overseeing the information technology (IT) strategy and operations. However, unlike a full-time CIO who is permanently employed by a company, a fractional CIO works on a part-time or temporary basis.
The primary role of a fractional CIO is to provide strategic guidance and leadership in managing an organization’s IT systems, infrastructure, and digital initiatives. They work closely with other executives and stakeholders to align technology initiatives with business objectives, drive innovation, and ensure the effective and efficient use of IT resources.
