IDG Launches CIO Magazine In Sweden

BOSTON, MA – JULY 18, 2002 – International Data Group (IDG), the world's leading technology media company, today announced the launch of CIO Sweden, the third European title, and the eleventh globally, to join the CIO global product line and the country's first publication designed to bridge the gap between IT issues and strategic business decisions. With its debut, CIO Sweden targets approximately 35,000 regional "C-level" managers, and addresses business management and technology trends that impact top executives in Sweden's emerging technology market.


"Inspired by the flagship U.S. CIO sister publication that has been a huge success since 1987, CIO Sweden will provide Sweden's growing community of senior IT decision makers with access to information that clearly and concisely links business and technology-related issues," said Alexandra Heymowska, editor in chief of CIO Sweden. "The magazine contains locally-produced solutions-oriented content that makes their decision-making easier."

Led by Heymowska, CIO Sweden is focused on CIOs' IT experiences, strategy, business advantages, and customer relations. With a majority of Swedish business publications focused on non-IT related issues, CIO Sweden was developed specifically to provide Sweden's growing community of senior IT decision makers with access to information that links business and technology related issues and provides them with the information they need to make critical technology business decisions.

CIO Sweden has an initial circulation of 25,000, 18,000 of which is controlled, 5,000 of which is paid, and the remaining 2,000 will be sold on newsstands for 65 krona (US $6.50). The premiere 84-page issue contains 25 pages of ads. For more information on CIO Sweden, please contact Alexandra Heymowska at or go to
