RIM Acquires Documents To Go Maker Dataviz

BlackBerry maker Research in Motion (RIM) has acquired mobile Office and Exchange support software maker DataViz.

The acquisition will help RIM to boost the productivity capabilities of its BlackBerry devices.

According to Crack Berry, Dataviz, the maker of the popular Documents To Go software was acquired by RIM for $50 million, but neither company has yet made any statement pertaining to the news.

DataViz announced that it would not be making a webOS version of Documents To Go, further suggesting proof of the acquisition as its efforts will be directed towards BlackBerry development.

In a statement on its Facebook page, the company said: “We regret to announce that we have made the difficult decision to not produce a Web OS version of Documents To Go. We understand that our delay in this area has caused much disappointment to our current and very loyal user base. We would like to explain in more detail the reasoning behind our decisions thus far.”

Several DataViz employees have also updated their LinkedIn profiles, which now say that they are RIM employees.
