CIO Service

The PDSA CIO Service provides Chief Information Officer (CIO) leadership services to small and medium-sized companies. We offer interim and on-going CIO services from day-to-day management of your information technology to IT planning. Our CIO of 25+ years' experience will help your company with IT Project Management, Software Application Lifecycle Management, Software Application Development and other IT services.

Our CIO Service offers the following

  • IT Assessment reviews your business and IT organization to determine where they are aligned and where they are mismatched. We provide you with a custom-tailored report that shows you those areas where processes can be optimized.
  • IT Roadmap lays out the future vision of where your IT organization needs to be in order to be aligned with your company's financial and strategic goals.
  • IT Executive Mentoring is a customized service designed with your IT executive team and our CIO Advisor to bring your team to a level that matches with your strategic goals.
  • Application Lifecycle Management Review looks at your IT processes and personnel to identify areas where those processes might need a little more guidance. You will then be presented with a document outlining how to bring your ALM process in-line with industry standards.
  • Software Cost Review determines if your current suite of software is costing you too much to run and maintain. A document with recommendations on where cost cutting might be appropriate will be presented.
  • Developer/Architect Skills Review is where we sit with each developer and finds out their current skills and determine how well that aligns with your future roadmap. The result of this is a customized training plan for your team to ensure that they can meet your future development needs.
  • Board of Directors Advisor is where our CIO Advisor sits on your board of directors, if desired, to help other board members understand the role of technology within your company.
  • Contractor/Vendor Oversight will look at each of your vendor relationships and ensure they are not costing you too much and the right resources are being utilized.
  • Off-The-Shelf Software Selection assists your team with planning on how to purchase an off-the-shelf package. We can help with selecting the vendor, developing a formal RFP outlining your requirements and help to implement the new software package into your company.
  • Test Case Creation is a process whereby your business analysts, architects and developers are taught the fundamentals of how to create test cases that will help ensure quality software is delivered every time.
  • RFP Creation will have our CIO Advisor help you write a Request for Proposal (RFP) in such a way that your requirements are clearly spelled out. Having a clearly written RFP will ensure that the product and/or service you are requesting matches what will work in your environment.
  • RFP Response will have our CIO Advisor help you respond to a Request for Proposal (RFP). The correct format and correct response will mean that you win the bid and not one of your competitors.
