As you may know, CIO Straight Talk is more than a
Community Director Mishtun Chatterjee
It’s a webinar series. It’s a website

It’s a Twitter feed (https://twitter.com/CIOStraightTalk).

The CIO Straight Talk Interactive group on LinkedIn is a
community of more than 1,000 CIOs and senior IT
executives. The group, sponsored by HCL, offers
peer-to-peer learning on current IT issues – particularly
those related to the adoption of emerging technologies
and the changing role of the CIO – through discussions,
interactive webinars, and idea-driven articles and videos.
This experience-based perspective (“from CIOs, for
CIOs”) is an often-overlooked source of industry insights.

CIO Straight Talk Interactive members (prospective
members are screened to ensure they are senior IT
practitioners) get early access to CIO Straight Talk
magazine content – for example, excerpts from an
interview with a CIO or thought leader that will serve as
the basis for a magazine article.
But it’s a two-way street: The magazine also
“group-sources” content from the community. In this
issue, for example, the thinking of community members is
featured in the cover article on big data and the Trends
2013 articles about emerging IT developments, in the
form of poll results and predictions by individual CIOs.
So join the conversation at CIO Straight Talk Interactive. I
think you’ll learn something. I know that we will.
