CMP Technology, a targeted media and marketing solutions company serving the technology industry worldwide, will publish two of its channel and enterprise properties — ‘CRN’ and ‘Network Computing’ — from April in India. Hitherto, Jasubhai Digital Media was publishing these titles under licence.
CMP Technology is a subsidiary of United Business Media of the US, a global provider of news distribution and specialist information services with a market capitalisation of more than $3 billion.
CMP Technology will create magazines, websites and email newsletters with editorial operations in Mumbai, Delhi and Bangalore, and supported by sales offices.
The Indian edition of CRN, part of a network of 17 editions worldwide, will be published bi-weekly. CRN will offer Indian solution providers and valued-added resellers the crucial information and analyses they need to drive their company’s revenues.
Network Computing, currently available in six countries, will help India’s technology leaders implement their business strategies and will be published monthly.
CRN and Network Computing will be priced at Rs 30 and Rs 50 respectively.
“This is an exciting first step in CMP Technology’s entry into India. We plan to build a full suite of media products including face-to-face events, websites and publications — all created by local editors and our international reporting staff for India. We are pleased to welcome the Indian business community into our worldwide media network,” said Steve Weitzner, President and CEO, CMP Technology.
