The Wall Street Journal announced Wednesday plans to launch CIO Journal, a paid 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 news and ongoing topics that are of interest to 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. Last month, Talking Biz News reported that Steve Rosenbush had been hired as deputy editor of CIO Journal.

“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, in a statement. “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. CFO Journal launched in 2011.
