Jobindex acquires Computer World and IDG Denmark

Clearwater Advisor

The listed Jobindex is Denmark’s largest job database, and with the acquisition of Computerworld and IDG Danmark (from IDG’s U.S. parent company International Data Group) Jobindex gets a solid foothold in the media market with the titles Computerworld, ComOn, PCworld, and Channel World. Besides the media Jobindex acquires the job database Jobworld, IDG Courses, IDG Event, the community site and the marketing areas: IDG Connect, IDG Direct, and Tech Network.

The merger of a news media, a job database, and a recruitment agency creates a valuable professional network of IT people combining news, discussions, and content delivered by the users, and at the same time giving the users access to job and career opportunities.

Computerworld and the underlying media will continue as independent media in a subsidiary to Jobindex.
