Wall Street Journal Set to Launch "CIO Journal" Premium Service Spring 2012

Deloitte Signs on as Exclusive Provider of Sponsored CIO-Focused Insights and Analysis

NEW YORK, Feb. 29, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The Wall Street Journal today 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 in the spring, the service will provide coverage of real-time news and ongoing topics that are highly relevant for senior business technology executives.

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

"In the age of innovation, the chief information officer has evolved into a central, strategic player in the corporation," said Alan Murray, The Wall Street Journal's Deputy Managing Editor and Executive Editor, Online. "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 LLP 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.

"We work daily with CIOs who want and need broad business insight and context, along with deep technology knowledge and experience," said Janet Foutty, principal and national managing director of technology, Deloitte Consulting LLP. "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.
