Wall Street Journal to launch "CIO Journal" premium service

MUMBAI: The News Corp owned business newspaper The Wall Street Journal has announced plans to launch CIO Journal, a premium news and information service for chief information officers and senior business executives interested in technology.

Set to launch this year, the service will provide coverage of real-time news and ongoing topics that are relevant for senior business technology executives.

CIO Journal, overseen by editor Michael Hickins, will be available online and via a standalone iPad app, and optimised for access via most smartphone devices. Subscribers will receive full access to and a daily morning newsletter providing the most up-to-date and relevant information and analysis.

The Wall Street Journal‘s Deputy Managing Editor and Executive Editor, online Alan Murray said, "In the age of innovation, the chief information officer has evolved into a central, strategic player in the corporation. CIOs are no longer just running service organizations; they are central to the most critical issues facing the company, including digitization, mobility, cloud computing, and security. CIO Journal will provide CIOs and their staffs a single and definitive source for the information and tools they need to fulfill that expanded role."

CIO Journal will be the latest in a series of premium content verticals from Dow Jones that also includes CFO Journal, Wall Street Journal Professional Edition, DJ FX Trader and Dow Jones Banking Intelligence.

Deloitte has entered into an exclusive arrangement to sponsor a regular stream of CIO-centric content and timely features, including research, topical digests, perspectives, and insights and technical analyses. Deloitte LLP also has a similar exclusive arrangement to sponsor a regular stream of CFO-centric content for CFO Journal, which launched in 2011.

Deloitte Consulting principal and national MD of technology Janet Foutty said, "We work daily with CIOs who want and need broad business insight and context, along with deep technology knowledge and experience. There is a surprising gap among top-tier publications in offering a business-led, technology-enabled point of view for the senior technology executive. In today‘s environment, given the staggering pace of change and innovation, CIO Journal will be a valuable source of news, information and insights."

CIO Journal will be anchored by a team of reporters and editors dedicated towards breaking important news to help business technology executives make better strategic and planning decisions. The service will also aggregate news from Dow Jones‘ 2,000 journalists worldwide, as well as from sources from Factiva, which includes more than 31,000 global business and news sources, many of which are not available for free on the Web.
