Purple makes understanding a client’s business a priority and then translates this into a technology service to underpin the business objectives. Purple are a people business and do not align themselves with any specific product, vendor or technology.
Co-Founders Alistair Sergeant and Stuart McClean are pleased to announce the launch of the Purple Virtual CTO service.
What is a CTO
A Chief Technology Officer is a key executive role inside an organisation whose responsibility is to understand the business drivers and align a technology to meet the business objectives. As technology advances are continually changing, it’s imperative that a business leverages these changes to deliver true competitive advantage.
Whilst the CTO position is an important and key part to the business not every organisation warrants this as full time role. Two considerations why a business may not employ a full time CTO are, from a cost prospective can the business afford this overhead, or that to acquire the talent required
to deliver the desired results there simply isn't a big enough requirement to keep the individual engaged long enough.
The Virtual CTO
Purple have created a new way for business to adopt a CTO into their organisation without the associated overheads and responsibilities normally associated with such a position.
The Virtual CTO's will bridge the Gap between the Business Vision and the Technical decisions that need to be made to support it.
