Empowering Businesses with Unmatched Expertise


Mike Miller
President, Senior IT Consultant and Customer vCIO (Virtual Chief Information Officer)

Being an IT Consultant since the 80’s, Mike Miller, President, continues to have a vision of offering enterprise class technology solutions to small-medium businesses in central Illinois. From the beginning, being a small business also, Mike needed the same technology that big businesses used to be efficient, productive, and protected on a small business budget. He has always been passionate about solving difficult technical and business challenges and found products, technologies, and solutions that the big businesses were using without needing an entire IT Dept to manage and run them. As workers now use technology “from anywhere on any device” in the workplace, that has become a standard part of our world, and the risk goes up along with it. TEAM ITS is there, setting the bar, to guide and provide you with that same big business technology that you need to be efficient, productive, and protected in your business. Mike’s role as vCIO to customers is to provide the roadmap with technology solutions that address customer pain points, hardware refresh planning, improve efficiencies, minimize production downtime, and architect the right onsite and offsite disaster recovery mechanisms to protect against natural disasters such as fire, tornado, water damage as well as a hardware failure or ransomware attacks.
