CIO attracts the highest concentration of enterprise CIOs and business technology executives with unparalleled peer insight and expertise on business strategy, innovation, and leadership. CIO readers gain key insights on career development for themselves and their employees, including certifications, hiring practices, and skills development, along with a strong foundation in digital transformation of their businesses.


Our Audience, Your Target

We aim for the top of any company’s IT organizational chart: the chief information officer and senior executives who influence, lead, and direct tech buying decisions within their companies.

Information tech has become a driver of competitive difference and commercial success. CIOs translate business strategy to tech value. They report to the top (47% report to the CEO), keep their position longer (average tenure is 5 years 8 months) and focus more on business strategy (57% hope to spend more time on strategic activities in the next 3-5 years).
