Cloud computing-based electronic design tools have to be proven to provide the security designers feel comfortable with. In the chip space Cadence and others have tipped their toes in cloud computing and have found security to be lacking. Altium being in the system design space might have found a comfortable business model working with Mortif and feel confident to take the necessary next step in using cloud computing for design.

Not exactly. There are two components to the Mortif acquisition. First, Altium is using the cloud today for on-demand licensing. Mortif will expand the cloud usage to include new content availble to Altium users that can be pulled from the cloud. The second component enables our users to build cloud based ecosystems for connected devices. Connected device design is the future.

Am I understanding this right? Is Altium suggesting that oneday EE designers should be able to run EDA tools over a cloud?
