The German Audit Bureau of Circulation (IVW) released the latest audit data for Q2 2017.

The latest numbers show that c’t magazine leads the market , with a total of 246’305 copies sold through subscriptions and newsstand sales, over 50 thousand more than the second contender ComputerBild, which is also targeting a different audience.

A similar situation shows for the more specialized iX magazine targeting computer professionals. Below graph shows the comparison of similar publications in the German market targeting IT professionals.

While above numbers are based on hard fact of copies sold, an even more interesting research result was published by Allensbach Media Market Analysis (AWA), one of the most important media market research firms in Germany.

This research does not focus on the actual copies sold, but on the analysis how many people actually read the publications.

The study is comparing reach in 2016 and 2017 and interestingly is showing that c’t magazine mentioned earlier is bucking the trend of declining of readership.

While other publications have high decrease in reach, maybe as readers can find similar information on the Internet, the reach of c’t is actually increasing.

This shows that the in depth and high authority content by the large editorial team by the Heise publishing group cannot be easily copied by online media. Readers seem to be noticing that.

It looks like 2017 is an interesting year for the German print publishers and we will be all looking forward for the next quarterly report.

Editorial content covered in this special issue:

Internet of Things.

With IoT technology rapidly evolving, we see data storage and processing happening more and more at the edge of the network. This requires more processing power and storage at the edge but greatly increases the versatility of IoT solutions

Managed Services
Co-location services can be an excellent choice for small businesses, without the need for costly investment and the looming worry of disaster recovery, utilizing a co-location service provides the comfort of reliability and service while taking away the costly investment of preparations for expansions should the need be there.

Cable management
Why Rittal is committed to start-up PatchBox. PatchBox, an Austrian start-up that focuses on rack cable management. PatchBox delivers more than a cleaner look, and simpler documentation it also speeds up installation and replacement in just a few minutes, whereas traditional racks would take over eight times longer to finish.

Big Data

Any change is perceived with skepticism, especially when it involves an evolution in the hardware and software we use in daily business. Businesses that have adopted big data early have thrived, so why is your organization not following suit?

Open Source
Why the Linux community is more secure. The benefit of the open-source nature of Linux is the fact that anyone can read the code and suggest fixes, or highlight concerns. This has led to a higher-class of security on Linux, by default as it set higher standards and is not influenced by the legacy architecture of many Windows applications.

Container
What are the security risks of running container services like Docker? Docker can be used very safely and is generally more secure than a VM or bare metal solution. Learn how to elevate your Docker security by preventing Kernel exploits, container breakouts, fend of DoS attacks, and guard against poisoned images.

Cloud network
How software-defined networks provide BoD (Bandwidth on Demand.)
