1 min read

Perforce Software has signed a definitive agreement to acquire Delphix.

The move adds Delphix's Data Management software platform to Perforce’s DevOps portfolio adding scalable automation, governance, and compliance of enterprise data throughout the application lifecycle.

"The addition of Delphix to our portfolio adds critical data management capabilities that help enterprise organisations realise an automated and accelerated DevOps pipeline," said Jim Cassens, CEO of Perforce. "In addition to data automation and compliance, we are excited to provide our customers with the operational efficiencies and reduced costs afforded by the Delphix platform through lower storage expenditures and footprint."

Many enterprise organisations view data as one of their most important assets and the ability to effectively harness, mine and analyse data is critical to making thoughtful decisions and creating competitive advantages.

Delphix can support customers as they look to scale data usage for analytics and testing purposes, while releasing applications up to 200% faster.

The company's capabilities in data virtualisation and data masking will allow organisations to more easily spin up, refresh, and tear down private and public cloud-based data environments, enhancing application delivery pipelines.

"We founded Delphix to help companies automate data and accelerate digital transformation. Today, we enable data governance, compliance, and automation across the multicloud for many of the world's biggest brands," explained Jedidiah Yueh, CEO of Delphix. "As part of Perforce, we will be positioned to continue innovating and help more customers realize the strategic power of our data platform."

The addition of Delphix builds on Perforce's existing infrastructure automation offering through acceleration of on-demand delivery, self-service test environments, and continuous testing offerings to deliver Shift Left testing with accurate, compliant, and timely test data.

Financial terms of the transaction have not been disclosed.
