BlackBerry’s New Software Does More Than You Think

What do nuclear power plants, aircraft carriers, and the new Blackberry 10 have in common? They all run on a software platform developed by a little known company from Ottawa, Canada, called QNX. In fact, Blackberry (Research in Motion at the time) bought the company back in 2010 as they looked at how to create a larger ecosystem of interconnected devices powered by a single scalable platform. QNX claims to be more stable than Linux and Windows, and is ideal for running mission critical applications with little to no maintenance. So reliable and stable that over 11 million automobiles shipped in 2011 using the QNX platform to power safety systems, telematics, and entertainment. With customers including Audi, Cisco, Honeywell, Hyundai, General Electric, GM, and Samsung, we have all been impacted by QNX and didn’t even know it.
