Interim IT Management

Interim IT Leadership

Every Interim IT Leadership project is unique to each institution. Some clients are only looking to keep everything running with no major changes until the permanent replacement arrives. Other schools want us to begin a major transformation of the IT Organization and the Services that it provides to the institution.  Most clients want some variation of these approaches.  We work with each client to provide a customized set of services to be delivered by our interim IT leader.
