The Wall Street Journal announced Monday the launch of CIO Journal, a premium news and information service for chief information officers and senior business executives focused on technology.

The subscription 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 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 Journal’s deputy managing editor and executive d\editor, online, in a statement. “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.”

The editorial 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.
