Computer Weekly today celebrates its 40th anniversary year by moving to a new compact format and unveiling an exciting programme of editorial innovations.
The changes allow you to continue to enjoy all of Computer Weekly’s award-winning, in-depth journalism in a more practical and convenient package.
Alongside the new look and size, we have introduced several design innovations to help you to get even more value from your Computer Weekly.
We have simplified the presentation of the editorial content. Each of the main stories now comes with a summary box to help you assess its relevance at a glance.
Added to this, we have adopted bolder, clearer signage throughout the publication to help you quickly identify and find the information you need.
We have also extended our weekly in-depth coverage of the issues that matter most to you. Each week you will find more crucial analysis of the week’s big stories, thought-provoking opinion, and business-critical case study and research articles.
Over the next 12 months, as part of Computer Weekly’s 40th anniversary editorial programme, we will identify, analyse and debate the current and emerging issues that will define the agenda for the IT professional community.
To kick off Computer Weekly’s 40th anniversary year celebrations, we are introducing a clutch of regular new features to our editorial coverage.
In today’s issue, we launch Computer Weekly’s CIO Index. This is based on exclusive quarterly research conducted by Computer Weekly among more than 100 leading CIOs into their views on the topics of the day, and the IT and business priorities they and their organisations face (see page 14).
Each month we will share with you some of the revealing findings of this ground-breaking research programme.
In the Management section, you will find the first of a regular series of articles exploring the power of effective decision making with a look at the critical choices that have shaped the careers of leading IT professionals. The series called Crucial Decisions starts with Brian Jones, former global CIO of Allied Domecq.
