What is the REAL Cost of Technology?

The Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) for your technology initiatives includes more than just the direct expenses. What about the indirect costs associated with any of the following common issues?

  • Failed implementations
  • Switching systems
  • System downtime
  • Lack of real-time reporting
  • Data breach
  • Employee turnover

The right technology leadership will reduce and/or eliminate these costs and mitigate the risks associated with these events.

Technology Assessments

Technology Assessment

Our rapid discovery technology assessment gathers and analyzes your key business objectives, existing technology, and current technology roadmap. Key personnel, vendors, and customers may be interviewed to gather additional information. Your industry and the growth phase of your business will impact certain aspects of the assessment.

The fee for the technology assessment can range from $2,500 to $10,000 depending on the scope and deliverables required. The resulting business technology scorecard identifies where you need to focus your attention and resources.

Part-time CTO Services

With CTO Nation, you can get the technology leadership you need but on a part-time basis that you can afford. Monthly retainer-based packages provide clearly-defined services and deliverables. Additionally, we can help you manage the “boots on the ground” technical resources whether they are internal employees, independent contractors, or 3rd party providers.
