Welcome to your newly redesigned CIO magazine.\n \nThis is our first major redesign since 2000\u2014and in the world of publishing, that's a \n\ngreat sign of life and strength. \n\nThe articles are shorter, and our new sections are organized more logically with your \n\nbusiness and career needs in mind. The cover story will anchor each issue with a great \n\ncompelling read. But our overall look and feel is brighter and sharper, thanks to our gifted \n\ndesigners Mary Lester and Terri Haas. And the content still crackles with high-quality \n\nreporting and editing, led by our editors Elana Varon and Steff Gelston.\n\nHere's what you'll find inside your new CIO magazine:\n\nStart: We begin by revving up each issue with a dash of perspective, a few \n\nopinions and a new "Chatter" feature that takes a spin through recent postings and CIO.com \n\nor letters from you worth sharing.\n\nGrow: The growth of your business is the core focus of this section, so the \n\narticles center on how IT contributes to top-line growth. You'll find food for thought on \n\ncompetitive advantage, business trends, mergers and acquisitions, growth-oriented \n\ntechnologies (such as customer-facing systems or business analytics), emerging markets and \n\nthe technologies helping them flourish. \n\nRun: The fine art of running a world-class IT operation dominates this \n\nsection, so these stories will touch on everything from staffing, outsourcing, ERP or \n\ncost-cutting tactics to vendor management, supply chains, business process and strategic \n\nplanning. Your colleagues will share how they solved an operational problem with plenty of \n\npractical, specific takeaways. \n\nConnect: The CIO Executive Council, our member-led peer advisory service, \n\nspeaks directly to you in this section. You'll find succinct advice on topics such as global \n\nsourcing management or wise counsel on how to resolve thorny leadership issues.\n\nThrive: Our final section is all about you. We'll shine a light on your \n\npersonal development from the Zen of work-life balance to a tune-up of your public speaking \n\nskills or career strategies. \n\nFinish: We wrap it all up with a striking photo and extended caption that \n\nbrings you IT from strange places and surprising angles. \n\nAs today's business realities fast-forward CIOs toward a future of unprecedented challenge, \n\nwe're glad to be heading there with you.
