Digia brings Qt user interface software back to embedded with Nokia deal
August 09, 2012 // Nick Flaherty
Finnish software house Digia is to acquire the Qt open source user interface software technology and business from Nokia to bring it back to the embedded space.
As part of the transaction, a maximum of 125 Qt people from Nokia will transfer to Digia, mostly based in Oslo, Norway and Berlin, Germany. We are looking forward to welcoming the Qt team to Digia. By adding this world class organization to our existing team we plan to build the next generation leading cross-platform development environment. said Tommi Laitinen, SVP, International Products, Digia. Now is a good time for everyone to revisit their perception of Qt. Digias targeted R&D investments will bring back focus on Qts desktop and embedded platform support, while widening the support for mobile operating systems.
Following the acquisition Digia becomes responsible for all the Qt activities formerly carried out by Nokia. These include product development, as well as the commercial and open source licensing and service business. Following the acquisition, Digia plans to quickly enable Qt on Android, iOS and Windows 8 platforms.
One of Digias key objectives with this acquisition is to improve its position within the Qt ecosystem by further strengthening Qts R&D capabilities and expanding its reach on many more platforms. Digia acquired the Qt Commercial licensing business from Nokia in March 2011 and forecasts the acquisitions impact on its 2012 revenues to be positive. All news
