Logitech has hired more than 100 new software developers and analysts as part of its push into cloud-based services.
The software giant has hired about 1,000 software developers to join its cloud-related divisions since the start of the year, it said on Thursday.
“Logitech is one of the most significant players in the online game industry, with millions of players worldwide,” the company said in a statement.
“Logitech has the resources to provide these talented people with the knowledge and skill they need to take Logitech’s cloud solutions to the next level.”
Logitech also plans to open up a new team of developers to develop gaming software, including a new gaming console, next year.
The move comes as the gaming software industry continues to evolve.
The game industry has exploded in the past decade, with the advent of the Xbox 360 and Playstation 3.
It has also become more sophisticated and more expensive, as developers have sought to offer consumers more control over their entertainment experiences.
The shift to cloud computing has helped create a new breed of cloud computing companies.
Cloud computing services are becoming more popular as the internet of things and new devices become increasingly connected, said Mike Turchin, chief executive of TechStars, a leading technology advisory firm.
