What is a Trusted Advisor?
A Trusted Advisor is an extension of your team, helping you navigate the confusion in the market caused by the accelerating pace of change in IT. They are a change agent that understands the technology trends in the industry and can help you make sense of what it all means to your business. Trusted Advisors help you harness IT to give your company a competitive advantage. They know the strengths of key service providers and can agnostically help you choose the right one for you. They’ll work side by side with your team to design, procure, implement, and support even the most complex IT solutions. Quite simply, a Trusted Advisor is the best friend a CIO will ever have.
