Network World[1] is an IT website that provides news and information to network executives. Its tagline is "The Connected Enterprise." The company is headquartered in Framingham, Massachusetts, United States.

Network World was started in 1986 by parent company International Data Group as a spin-off of Computerworld. In 1995 Network World launched a Web site called Network World Fusion which it renamed in 2005. The site is updated daily with news, features, product reviews and tests, opinions, blogs, videos and podcasts.

Network World has sections on topics such as Cisco, cloud computing, Microsoft, open source, SDN,[2] and wireless.

The publication is a perennial winner of awards[3] from organizations such as the American Society of Business Publication Editors.[4] Content includes investigative pieces such as "Where the public cloud actually lives"[5] as well as lighter fare, such as the annual Tech Industry Graveyard.[6] Popular blogs on the site include Layer 8[7] and BuzzBlog.[8]

Network World also is involved in tech industry events, including the IIT Roadmap[9] series. In addition, the publication has a presence across social media sites, including YouTube[10] and Facebook[11]
