As part of this spin-off, the service itself will be rebranded as “Everviz” - but otherwise identical to the latest iteration of the Highcharts Cloud service. “We like to play around with new business and product ideas and incubate those that have a great market potential. ” says Highsoft CEO Grethe Hjetland. “ When Highcharts Cloud found success outside of our traditional developer community, we decided to let this product, and the team behind it, go their own way to maximize its potential. The Everviz team is now singularly focused on growing a business that targets end users, while the rest of the Highcharts team returns to focusing on serving the needs of developers,” she continues.
The Visual Elements team will relocate to Bergen, and will be led by Håvard Tveit, with Kulbir Kainth as the technical lead, both formerly at Highsoft.
“It is tremendously exciting to launch a service like this in Bergen, Norway’s media capital, where so many media-tech companies have grown to become global market leaders,” says Mr. Tveit . “And having built our service on top of Highcharts, the world's most popular and robust charting library, gives us an edge in the market that is hard to replicate, he continues.
