VERNON HILLS – Information technology company CDW Corp., which went public in June, said Friday its second-quarter net income rose 27 percent on higher revenue from corporate and public clients rose.

Net income rose to $46.7 million for the three months ended June 30 from $36.8 million last year. Revenue rose nearly 8 percent to $2.78 billion from $2.5 billion last year.
