IDG, which owns media brands like CIO and Macworld, will add Selling Simplified’s capabilities to a tech stack that it has built up through other acquisitions over the last 18 months. In this time, IDG acquired ABM platform Triblio, B2B intent data platform LeadSift and KickFire, a marketing data and intelligence solution.
