Perforce Software acquires Puppet to reinforce its DevOps capabilities

Puppet CEO Yvonne Wassenaar Puppet CEO Yvonne Wassenaar

Solutions provider to enterprise teams Perforce Software has signed an agreement to acquire infrastructure automation software platform Puppet.

Puppet’s solutions enable digital transformation by increasing productivity, eliminating mistakes, enhancing security, and accelerating software delivery for DevOps teams. The company was an early developer of what is now referred to as “infrastructure-as-code.”

Puppet claims more than 40,000 organisations have benefited from its open source and commercial solutions.

It also styles its annual State of DevOps Report as an informative source for updates on DevOps adoption and advancement across organisations. It has polled an estimate of 35,000 technical and managerial professionals via ten separate surveys since 2011.

“This acquisition expands our product offering by adding new capabilities for enterprise DevOps teams to manage and secure their critical infrastructure,” comments Perforce Software CEO Mark Ties.

“Puppet has been in the DevOps space for over 15 years with a focus on infrastructure-as-code and operators. Going forward, however, we believe enterprise customers are looking for strategic partners who can provide more breadth and depth across the entire DevOps lifecycle. Integrating Puppet into Perforce does just that," explains Puppet CEO Yvonne Wassenaar.

The acquisition will reinforce Perforce’s existing DevOps portfolio to solve some of the most difficult automation challenges in the world’s largest enterprises.

Like Perforce, Puppet delivers solutions to big enterprises including 85% of the world’s largest banks and 80% of the world’s top technology organizations. Together, the combined company will be helping to drive innovation at its combined customer base, which includes 40 companies of the Fortune 50.

“With this strategic acquisition, Perforce is positioned to capitalise on market tailwinds driving demand for IT infrastructure automation,” comments Francisco Partners partner Evan Daar and Clearlake senior vice president Sean Courtney in a joint statement.

“The addition of Puppet further enhances the capabilities Perforce can offer to its valued customers, and we look forward to catalyzing this opportunity to drive continued momentum for the platform,” they concluded.

The acquisition is subject to customary closing conditions and is expected to close in the second quarter of 2022.
