The CIO Paradox

Focused on the future but tethered by technology decisions of the past? We’re here to help.

Your role is to be strategic but you’re forced to spend most of your time on operational issues.

  • Outsourcing basic operational functions to a specialist IT service provider like Datcom can free your team from the shackles of daily fire fighting, so they have the time to work with you on the strategies which will propel your business forward.

The company reports in quarters while technology is a long term investment.

  • We understand one of the greatest challenges of the modern CIO is managing the expectations of boards who want the best IT support, infrastructure and capabilities but struggle to accept the impact on the P&L.
  • Datcom’s Cloud networking, Infrastructure as a Service, Backup as a Service and Software as a Service changes the way you can access the products and services you need without battling with the board.

Your department is now expected to contribute to driving the business yet they’re seen as a service provider.

  • While your department are providing the standard desktop support on a daily basis to staff from the most junior through to the C suite, your team will struggle to change your internal customer’s view.
  • Outsource this basic ‘service provider’ function to help change the internal company perception, enabling you to drive your business with strategic, thought leadership IT management.

You are expected to innovate and yet you’re responsible for cost control and risk mitigation.

  • The easiest way to manage costs is to know from the outset what they will be. Our FLAT RATE managed IT services guarantees you’ll never have any nasty P&L surprises. And costs are amortised evenly across the year so there will be no cost spikes to be interrogated.
  • Let us help you mitigate your IP risks with our enterprise-level security solutions. Rely on the expertise of our Level 1 solution engineers to ensure your projects are successfully delivered on time and on budget.
  • Supercharge your team with access to one of Australia’s highest level HP Specialist System Engineers.
  • An on-call team consistently trained & certified for up-to-the-minute expertise in all support and development areas.
  • Experienced in a huge range of operating systems, applications and platforms. PCs to mobiles, servers & network equipment.
  • Get support from a team with the highest certifications.
