New Kongsberg Digital subsidiary launched to focus on technology products

Kongsberg has established a new subsidiary called Kongsberg Digital, to focus on advanced data, software and simulation products and hold group responsibility for developing new digital solutions and related technology alliances.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}The new company will be headed up by Hege Skryseth as president, who will also assume the position of chief digital officer of Kongsberg, and will include about 450 employees from existing software and simulation operations within Kongsberg Oil & Gas Technologies and Kongsberg Maritime.

“We’re at the starting point of significant changes due to the digitalisation of industrial processes. Technologies such as Internet of Things, Big Data, automation and robotics will lead to significant changes for the industry as well as for the public sector,” said Walter Qvam, CEO of Kongsberg.

“Kongsberg is already a digital group with world-leading products within sensor technology, electronics, software development and big data processing. Through the launch of Kongsberg Digital we take an important step in the Group’s strategy for developing the next generation of digitalised products and services.”

“About 70 per cent of Komgsberg is in one way or another related to software. We see significant opportunities for us in the current technology shift, both in Norway and internationally. Kongsberg Digital will be a focal point for digital products and solutions, and a key driver for the Group's digital offering. This will ensure that our customers also in the future will have access to the best technology. In addition, the company will develop new solutions and gradually establish positions in new markets.”{/mprestriction}
