Experienced CIO Consultants With Cutting-Edge IT Expertise

If you are like most organizations today, you are seeking to find more efficient ways to grow your business. But do you know how to find the right business process or software solution for your specific needs?

Here at Meritide, you receive tailored CIO solutions to help you determine your exact requirements, understand why you need what you need, and then align you with solutions to meet your exact specifications.

Proven Expertise and Methods to Help You Achieve Greater Success

Unlike other CIO consulting firms, Meritide is uniquely positioned to help your small or mid-size business execute an IT roadmap with CIO-level guidance. We bring tested methodologies, vendor relationships, experience, smart decision-making, training and support to the table each and every time.

CIO-Level Leadership

A Meritide CIO can lead the organization and implementation of strategic IT roadmap recommendations. Our role often includes the movement of competence in technology to business analysis skills to facilitate solving business problems with technology; being responsible for the company technology strategy / purpose / mission; working with the business and training department heads on how to apply technology to their business units.

Technology Governance

Our IT consultants believe the application of technology to the business is a “business function” and that responsibility for this process should that of each department head, executive and end user. For example, many Minnesota businesses could benefit by establishing a Technology Steering Committee composed of business leaders that will have the responsibility to see that this strategy is implemented.

IT Project Process

Our IT consultants often help Minnesota-based small and mid-size organizations establish an IT Project Process for large projects. Benefits of an IT Project Process include greater business (end user) accountability and control over technology projects/expenses and priorities; project definition – so the business and IT operate with the same expectations and process; and ROI for projects that the business owns and IT helps define.

Driving IT Performance

We often suggest the selection of a few key metrics that can be used to measure IT performance – service orientation as measured by each major business function; reliability of the current systems; advancement of projects within the context of the Technology Plan for the company. And, strong communications between the business functions and IT will enable the working relationships and the performance of IT across the company.
