nternational Data Group, Inc. [2] is an American media, events, and research company based in Needham, Massachusetts that focuses on the tech landscape. Blackstone, an American alternative management company, is the majority owner. It was founded in 1964 and consists of International Data Corporation (IDC), and IDG Communications. The latter includes the brands CIO and Computerworld, CSO and TechHive. [5][6]
HistoryInternational Data Corporation was established by Patrick Joseph McGovern in 1964. He sold his car to help fund the company’s start-up. The company was based in Massachusetts and produced a computer installation database (based on a customer base purloined by IBM). It also published a newsletter, “EDP Industry and Market Report”, which was modeled on the “ADP Newsletter”, which is published by The Diebold Group. IDC was paid by companies such as RCA and Univac, Xerox, Burroughs, for the use of the data base. McGovern continued to write for “Computers and Automation”, the first computer magazine published by Edmund Berkeley.
The company’s third year saw a revenue of $154,996. The net profit was modest at $2,961. McGovern was contemplating liquidating the company when he came up with the idea to launch Computerworld in 1967. This was a continuation and publication of the monthly newsletter, but in a different format. It also featured advertising. This became the cornerstone of IDG’s subsequent publishing arm. McGovern founded PC World.
IDG Books, a public company that was spun off of the privately owned IDG, published the self-help “…For dummies” books. The “…ForDummies” series was initially limited to computer-related fields. However, it was later expanded to cover a wider range of topics. John Wiley & Sons now publishes the series. [9] IDG Books/Hungry Minds — IDG Books was briefly renamed prior to being sold to Wiley. It is no longer a separate company. [8] IDG introduced the “Nanosite” in 2010, an advertising tool that was designed to be an alternative to a microsite. [10]
McGovern’s March 2014 death resulted in the transfer of ownership to the McGovern Foundation. There were many layoffs as a result. [11] In January 2017, IDG annexed McGovern to the McGovern Foundation.
