What is CTO-as-a-Service?
Whilst the CTO position is an important part to the business, not every organization wants this as full time role due to business affordability or not having a long term plan for continued engagement. CTO as a Service can add to your permanent activities or augment existing staff to optimize your strategy, complete and fulfil your vision and ensure you have the ability to execute the first time correctly and better chances of success.
The initiative is to help established companies or ‘technology start-ups’ with a holistic view of conceptualization of their ideas to realization of its full potential. Start-ups today have several challenges to get to the final day of realization, from their concept which may be in hand written notes or sketches or Power Points or may be in some cases a working prototype.
Today, missing Technology skills provides the killer edge for success. Most companies start out from base versions, to building a Minimum Viable Product demo (MVP), and upon its success to go live with their first production version (Version 2) and beyond to scale and deploy. The technology skills required to engage and deliver across the various versions are different. Most of the help required ranges from resource identification, team building and motivation, project management, delivery and coding excellence, UX and testing the products, milestone planning, build, deploy and finally releasing it live. “We assign a CTO into your company and back them up with an engineering team,” with these value-added services
