Strategic IT Planning

service, and be a budget-able investment that will grow with your business.
Traditionally, larger companies hire CIOs to create a strategic IT plan, but
that is typically too expensive for small and medium businesses. Instead,
partner with an IT consulting service such as Dr Dale PC and gain the expertise
and experience of multiple CIOs without footing the bill for even one.
