Mozilla annuncia la chiusura della divisione Dispositivi Connessi

Massimo Maiorano -

Tempo di novità in casa Mozilla: oltre all’adozione di un nuovo logo infatti, l’azienda ha comunicato anche la chiusura del suo reparto Dispositivi Connessi.

Seppur l’azienda non stia attraversando alcun problema finanziario, circa 50 dipendenti al lavoro su smart TV e simili saranno purtroppo ricollocati internamente e, qualora ciò risulti impossibile, Mozilla ha promesso di impegnersi a fondo per il futuro benessere dei dipendenti interessati.

Come giudicate la scelta di Mozilla in merito alla chiusura della divisione IOT?

IoT is clearly an emerging technology space, but it’s still early. We have shifted our internal approach to the IoT opportunity to step back from a focus on launching and scaling commercial products to one focused on research and advanced development, dissolving our Connected Devices initiative and incorporating our IoT explorations into an increased focus on Emerging Technologies.

This is much like our approach to Quantum which emerged from Servo/Rust. We continue to grow our headcount and investment across all of Mozilla, including investments in new areas like IoT, VR, AR and Decentralized Web.


Although we believe it is the right strategic decision for Mozilla, we recognize that it will impact people’s lives and are are committed to supporting their well-being. People are the reason why we can get anything done — this isn’t lost on us — and we did not make this decision lightly.
