Technology is integral to every organization’s success. It is the foundation of core services, communication, and in building and managing valuable information. It is used to drive growth, to rise above competitors, to optimize processes, and to reach a global audience.

In order to unlock your business’ potential, a highly effective and competitive technology strategy is paramount, more so now than ever. In most small and medium businesses, technology leadership, expertise, and experience is severely lacking. Most small and medium businesses select the wrong technology, incorrect deployment schedules, and incorrect vendors and services. A great vCTO or vCIO is needed by these organizations to maximize results by the leveraging technology to its full advantage.

A full-time CTO is far too costly for a small to medium business. For this reason, outsourcing CTO functions to a highly capable and well positioned technology firm, such as The AD Leaf, provides great results at a fraction of the cost. With The AD Leaf’s vCTO Services, an experienced and dedicated CTO can be available to you virtually via phone, email, and video conference.

We take on all aspects of daily technology and product leadership, including:

Rapid Assessment: Execute intensive analysis of your technology platforms to identify the roadblocks to scaling and recommend changes in your platforms and processes to improve business and technical operations and product quality.

Daily Management: Management of your technology development and product management teams, including prioritizing work based on business need, supervising your technology and product teams, and managing the technology and product development budget.

Technology Evaluation and Selection: In any product development effort, a number of key technology choices need to be made based on the desired business outcome, cost of delivery, skills of the current and desired team, and market expectations.
