Computerworld is a publication website and digital magazine for information technology (IT) and business technology professionals. It is published in many countries around the world under the same or similar names. Each country's version of Computerworld offers unique content and is managed independently. The parent company of Computerworld US is IDG Communications.

Computerworld US serves the needs of IT and business management with coverage of information technologies, emerging technologies, career information and analysis of technology trends. Computerworld also publishes several notable special reports each year, including the 100 Best Places to Work in IT, IT Salary Survey, the DATA+ Editors' Choice Awards and the annual Forecast research report. Computerworld articles frequently criticizes the effects of immigration to the U.S. (e.g. the H-1B visa) on U.S. software engineers.[5][6]

The editor-in-chief of Computerworld in the U.S. is Scot Finnie, who leads a staff of almost 20 editors and writers, including executive editor/features and design Ellen Fanning, managing editor/news Ken Mingis, managing editor/online Sharon Machlis, managing editor/technologies Johanna Ambrosio and managing editor/production Bob Rawson.[7]

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. From 1999 to 2008, it was published three days a week, but since 2009, it is published only on Tuesdays and Fridays.[8][9][10]

In June 2014, Computerworld US abandoned its print edition, becoming an exclusively digital publication.[1] In late July 2014, Computerworld debuted the monthly Computerworld Digital Magazine.[11]
