(Video) What can a Virtual Chief Digital Officer (V CDO) do for your organisation?

I’d like to talk to you about the role of the Chief Digital Officer in your business.

Now most small- to medium-businesses and not-for-profit organizations cannot afford to have a Chief Digital Officer inside their business.

You’re probably asking what will a CDO do for me? Well a CDO will actually take all of the components to your business and find out what direction you are going in, what is good technology and what is not good technology for your business, and it doesn’t necessarily mean that we’re going to put everything in the cloud.

But the CDO is also anything to do with the digital world. He has the knowledge about it. So you want to use Facebook. Okay, not a problem. How are you going to use it? What are you going to use it for? How are you going to get your message out there?

That is also part of the role of a CDO. But as I said, they’re an expensive commodity in a small business. So how do you get all of that information and expertise without paying an arm and a leg and sending your business broke?

Well, when it comes to the Virtual CDO, you can have access to that information by employing someone who will come in an hour a month, an hour a week, an hour every two weeks, and sit down with the management team and work out what you need to do for your business.

And what digital components will reinforce that message, to make sure that when you are looking at how you’re going to get, that the information is not going to get cul-de-sac’d, or that information is not going to be bad for you, or in some cases, the information that you’re playing with needs to have some other components to make it really beneficial for your business.

And that is the role of the CDO. And a virtual CDO will come in, talk to management teams, talk to Board members, and find out exactly what direction your business needs to go in and how you want to do it and how much it will cost to do it.

And if it’s going to cost an arm and a leg again, then how are we going to grab it back to make it cost effective.

Now a virtual CDO, what we do as a role in our managed services is you get that for free as part of a service level agreement we put in place having one of our high-end technical experts come to your office. And none of that gobbledygook. They are based in applying technology to business to make it work.

So if you need to have someone who can come in and have a look at your business and find out where your business needs to go and what you need to do and put it in place, then a virtual CDO is what you need.

Thank you very much
