Computerworld is an IT magazine that provides information for senior IT leaders. It is published in many countries around the world under the same or similar names. Its publisher is International Data Group. Computerworld serves the needs of IT management via print and online. It also offers numerous Computerworld programs and events, including SNW, Premier 100 IT Leaders, Computerworld Honors, BI Perspectives and Best Places to Work in IT. The Computerworld Web site, the conference series and custom research join the twice-monthly print publication to form the U.S.-based hub of the world's largest (58-edition) global IT media network.

The editor-in-chief of Computerworld in the U.S. is Scot Finnie, who leads a staff of more than 20 editors and writers, including executive editor Julia King, managing editor/news Ken Mingis, managing editor/online Sharon Machlis, managing editor/features Ellen Fanning, managing editor/technologies Johanna Ambrosio, managing editor/production Bob Rawson and director of blogs, Joyce Carpenter. Computerworld's vice president and publisher is John Amato, and its vice president and online sales director is Jennell Dill.

When IDG established the Swedish edition in 1983, 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. In 1999–2008 it was published three days a week, but since 2009 only on Tuesdays and Fridays.[5][6][7]

In 2014, Computerworld abandoned their print edition.[1]
