The Magazine

DCN is the total solution at the heart of the data centre industry.

Being the only dedicated digital magazine devoted to the data centre industry, we have a powerful reach across the data market and now boast over 35,000 engaged subscribers that utilise the magazine on a monthly basis. Our readers use DCN to keep up to date with industry news, product developments, insight, analysis and opinion concerning all of the popular topics surrounding the industry.

Due to its popularity as well as circulation development at key industry events via our media partnerships, DCN has attracted readers from all over the globe and as a result we are now aimed at a more diverse geographical readerbase. This means that we will be covering international data centre news, developments and product releases.

The central hub of all things data centre

Originally launched in 2012 with a base readership of 12,000 targeted professionals and focused entirely on the UK market, DCN has cemented itself as not only an invaluable resource for senior CIOs, CTOs, IT & data centre management professionals but also as an impactful and cost effective marketing platform offering unrivalled ROI for both new and existing clients. The magazine’s success and growth to over 25,000* UK and 11,000* international readers is largely due to the timely, industry reflective editorial content. DCN has engaged with the tablet & smartphone generation and has in turn increased the benefits, response rates and ROI for our advertisers.

The Industry

The global data centre industry is growing at an incredible rate. With ever increasing demands on satisfying end user needs, the role and importance of data centres across the globe is evolving. Billions of pounds are being spent to improve data centre infrastructure to continually meet the growing demands of businesses and their customers. The recent boom in tablets and smartphones has placed further demands on data centres and cloud services, and is responsible for a large proportion of recent growth.

As expected, specialised hosting and cloud vendors as well as colocation providors are likely to see the most growth over the coming two years, followed closely by managed service providers. Issues and developments relating to cloud services, virtualisation, infrastructure, security, legislation and energy efficiency are never far from the thoughts of C-Level  and senior management professionals across the industry and the pace of change means that there are always updates and innovations to be aware of.

Various trends are emerging which are driving global industry development. With predicted growth in particular across the UK, Central and Eastern Europe, Asia-Pacific and Nordic countries, it’s an exciting time to be a part of the data bubble and, it doesn’t seem likely that the bubble will be popping any time soon!

All Things Media Ltd

All Things Media Ltd publishes the leading industry trade journals Electrical Contracting News (ECN), Data Centre News (DCN) and Network Communications News (NCN).

ECN was launched back in 1980 as a broadsheet style news based publication for electrical contractors and quickly gained a strong foothold in the market and an enviable reputation for featuring high quality news and opinion on a monthly basis.

NCN was launched in 1998 as Network Cabling News and has built up a dedicated and loyal readership. Well respected by industry experts, the monthly publication has been widely viewed as the number one magazine in the industry for over 12 years.

Both titles have gone from strength to strength, with digital versions, Editor’s Newsletters and iPhone/iPad apps providing further opportunities for readers to keep up to date with events in these fast moving industries.

In November 2007 Network Cabling News became Network Communications News in order to properly encompass every element of the diverse and changeable network infrastructure industry.

After 30 years as a broadsheet style publication ECN adopted a new ‘tabloid size’ format in April 2010. Though the news, articles and features remained as engaging as ever the new size meant that busy electrical contractors found it easier to manage when out and about.

Our Readership

Since its launch, DCN has attracted subscriptions from a vast array of senior industry professionals from across the UK and more recently, internationally. With a dedicated circulations manager as well as targeted new reader activity at industry events that we are media sponsors for, the DCN readership is continuallly evolving. We constantly evaluate and maintain our database to ensure that our audience is growing and that our content is always relevant to our target audience.
