Chief Technology Officer-as-a-Service

CTO as a Service Button 

SUPERCHARGING digital transformation for SMEs

Transform your business with easy access to digital solutions and a shared pool of skilled CTOs with Chief Technology Officer-as-a-Service (CTOaaS)


CTOaaS is a new initiative developed by IMDA to help SMEs identify and access resources they need to digitally transform. It includes:

  1. quick access to digitalisation resources via a web application and
  2. a shared pool of skilled CTOs for SMEs that need in-depth digital advisory.

Through CTOaaS, all SMEs will be able to access a one-stop web application where they can assess their digital maturity and digitalisation needs. SMEs will receive tailored recommendations on digital solutions they can adopt, including the relevant grant support available, based on their identified needs, enterprise profile and business goals. SMEs will be able to compare these solutions and make more informed decisions on which one best meets their needs. SMEs will also be able to receive relevant news and case studies of SMEs that have digitalised, to learn from the experiences of their peers.

For SMEs that need in-depth digital advisory, CTOaaS will also provide a shared pool of CTO-equivalents, or Digital Consultants to help SMEs identify their digitalisation needs, select suitable digital solutions and project manage the solution implementation. Following a preliminary self-assessment, SMEs will be assigned to these Digital Consultants with digital tech expertise in areas such as data analytics, cybersecurity, Internet of Things and artificial intelligence, among others. IMDA aggregates SMEs’ demand so that they can access professional CTO services at no charge or at an affordable rate.
