What is the reason of using CMake in KDE softwares?

Registered Member
I am a newcomer to the KDE community.
I see that KDE uses CMake for compiling the software source codes and I am trying to understand the reason of it. I have read in the CMake official website that CMake makes the compilation process machine independent. However, we can simply use a Qt project and run it in different machines. I have done it for small projects and it works fine. So my question is that why do we need to use CMake?
