NEW YORK, March 28, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Ziff Davis Enterprise, a leader in innovative enterprise IT media and engagement solutions, announced today that it has added five new editorial features and refreshed the design of CIO Insight, its top-tier brand for senior IT executives.  CIO Insight provides top technology leaders with information on how to maximize the latest technologies, improve enterprise productivity, advance their own careers, and lead the workforce of the future.

In direct response to reader feedback and under the direction of Editor-in-Chief, Susan Nunziata, the new print issues incorporate five new sections that are packed with actionable insights, how-to guidance, and perspective from peers and industry experts.  New sections include:

  • Inside the C-Suite: A look at the priorities of the CIO's C-level colleagues, with particular focus on the expectations and business concerns of CEOs and CFOs
  • What's On The CIO's Mind: Surveys on the hottest topics of concern to IT executives
  • Executive Briefing: A digest of the latest tech and workplace trends
  • Thought Leadership Center: Experts from the corporate, academic and public sectors share tips and best practices aimed at enhancing the CIO's strategic business and technology acumen
  • Books to Boost Your CIO IQ: Reviews of the best tech, business and management tomes for IT leaders

In addition to these new features, the publication's refresh also includes expansion of exclusive research topics, enhancement of strategic technology reporting, and the continuation of one-on-one Q&A features with leading CIOs.  The corresponding redesign brings in iconography and imagery that will appeal to the modern CIO – and continue to capture their attention through trusted, recurring editorial, now and in the future.

"The fresh, edgy new look of CIO Insight is the first step in our year-long strategy to present a unified, transmedia brand encompassing print, online, eNewsletters, eSeminars, custom content, videos and live events," said Nunziata.  "Together, our transmedia services offer multiple touchpoints that deliver high-value content for our audience of IT decision-makers, whenever and wherever they need it," she continued.

Already growing in popularity and attracting new, qualified subscribers, the new editorial sections and redesign will soon be transferred to the CIO Insight website (http://www.cioinsight.com) and its eNewsletters, providing additional relevant context for advertising messages and reach to a new group of CIOs.

For technology companies, CIO Insight's multiple touchpoints provide multiple opportunities to engage with CIOs across the technology decision making process.

"The C suite continues to lead their organizations through both exciting and challenging technology transitions as enterprises embrace the power of cloud computing and mobility," said Jeff Strief, President, Enterprise Business, Ziff Davis Enterprise.  "Ziff Davis Enterprise's full- funnel marketing solutions -- including lead nurturing and scoring -- are enabling our marketing partners to create custom programs to deliver the right message at the right time in a CIO's adoption process."
