Computerworld is an ongoing[7] decades old professional publication which in 2014 "went digital."[2] Its audience is information technology (IT) and business technology professionals,[8] and is available via a publication website and as a digital magazine.

It is published in many countries around the world under the same or similar names. Each country's version of Computerworld includes original content and is managed independently. The parent company of Computerworld US is IDG Communications.

History

The first issue was published in 1967.[9]

Going international

The company IDG offers the brand "Computerworld" in 47 countries worldwide, the name and frequency differ slightly though. [10] When IDG established the Swedish edition in 1983 i.e., the title "Computerworld" was already registered in Sweden by another publisher. This is why the Swedish edition is named Computer Sweden. It is distributed as a morning newspaper in tabloid format (41 cm) in 51,000 copies (2007) with an estimated 120,000 readers. From 1999 to 2008, it was published three days a week, but since 2009, it is published only on Tuesdays and Fridays.[11][12][13]

Going Digital

In June 2014, Computerworld US abandoned its print edition, becoming an exclusively digital publication.[2] In late July 2014, Computerworld debuted the monthly Computerworld Digital Magazine. In 2017, Computerworld celebrated its 50th year in tech publishing with a number of features and stories highlighting the publication's history.[14]

Computerworld's website premiered in 1996, nearly 2 decades before their last printed issue.

Ongoing

Computerworld US serves IT and business management with coverage of information technology,[15] emerging technologies and analysis of technology trends.[16] Computerworld also publishes several notable special reports each year, including the 100 Best Places to Work in IT,[7] IT Salary Survey, the DATA+ Editors' Choice Awards and the annual Forecast research report. Computerworld in the past has published stories that highlight the effects of immigration to the U.S. (e.g. the H-1B visa) on U.S. software engineers.[17][18]

Staff

The executive editor of Computerworld in the U.S. is Ken Mingis, who leads a small staff of editors, writers and freelancers who cover a variety of enterprise IT topics (with a concentration on Windows, Mobile and Apple/Enterprise).[19]
