ZDNet is looking to bring together an exclusive group of industry experts who want to share their opinions with Australia and the world.
If you are a CIO, CTO or head of IT at an organisation, large or small, and want to make your voice heard on the big tech issues of the day, you'll want to be part of ZDNet's CIO Jury.
Here's how it will work: every few weeks, the ZDNet editors will choose a question to send out to our specially selected CIO Jury — sometimes focusing on Australian members, other times opening the discussion up to our other CIO Juries around the world.
Jury members can respond with a simple yes or no, and can, if they wish, add additional comments. These comments could be used in a CIO Jury article that we develop from Jury responses. (Jury members can also indicate if they'd like their comments to remain anonymous.)
Previously, we've set up a UK CIO Jury, a US Jury exists on TechRepublic and ZDNet Asia is starting one, too. Now we'll be combining forces around the globe and across our networks, so that we'll be able to focus on perspectives both local and global.
So, if you're the head of an IT department and control an IT budget, you're eligible. You can work in the public or private sector. Right now, however, we're not accepting CIOs who work for technology vendors, or as a one-person IT department.
Rest assured, we won't ever disclose your details to any third party — we value your privacy.
Even if you're not interested in joining, we'd like to hear your suggestions for CIO Jury questions you'd like to see addressed. To submit a potential CIO Jury question, again, simply click the link below or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
