Wall Street Journal Launches "CIO Journal"
NEW YORK, April 2, 2012 —The Wall Street Journal announced today the launch of CIO Journal, a premium news and information service for chief information officers and senior business executives focused on technology. The service provides real-time news, coverage and analysis written and produced by a dedicated team of editors and financial journalists.
Deloitte is the exclusive sponsor of CIO Journal, and provides a daily stream of CIO-focused fact-based research, technology perspectives and analyses, case studies and more. Deloitte has a similar exclusive sponsorship with The Wall Street Journal's CFO Journal, which launched in 2011.
Led by editor Michael Hickins, CIO Journal is available online, via the iPad, and is optimized for access via most smartphone devices. Subscribers will have access to the service via The Wall Street Journal Tablet Edition for iPad.
"The technology landscape has changed dramatically in recent years and with it so has the role of the CIO within a company," said Alan Murray, The Wall Street Journal's Deputy Managing Editor and Executive Editor, Online. "CIOs are on the front lines of some of the most important issues within their companies, and their responsibilities demand that they stay on top of relevant news in real-time. Whether sitting in front of a computer in New York or on a plane to Hong Kong with only an iPad, senior technology executives will find CIO Journal is the definitive tool to help them make key business decisions."
"In today's environment, given the staggering pace of change and innovation, CIO Journal is a valuable source of news, information and insights tailored for the postdigital executive." said Janet Foutty, principal and national managing director, technology, Deloitte Consulting LLP.
Subscribers to CIO Journal receive full access to WSJ.com. Other key features include:
- Must-read technology articles written by a dedicated team of editors and financial journalists with a deep understanding of technology and its impact on the business. The team includes deputy editor Steven Rosenbush, a former editor and writer with Institutional Investor and BusinessWeek; Rachael King, formerly a reporter for Bloomberg BusinessWeek; reporter Clint Boulton, formerly a senior writer at Ziff Davis Enterprise; reporter Joel Schectman, most recently with the Bergen Record; and producer Thomas Loftus, a former editor for the Journal's Digits blog and WSJ Professional.
