A definitive agreement has been signed by Perforce Software to purchase DevOps leader Puppet.

With a history of more than 15 years in the DevOps sector, Puppet has traditionally focused on infrastructure-as-code and operators. The business now view enterprise customers as being the organisations that are most relevant strategic partners going forward on their DevOps journey, with the integration of Puppet into Perforce being an important part of this plan.

“As part of Perforce, we believe we will be better positioned to service the breadth of DevOps needs our customers have while accelerating our own innovation to ensure customers can deliver, operate and automate their infrastructures at scale in the data center, across clouds, and out to the edge,” said Yvonne Wassenaar, CEO of Puppet.

As of the end of last year, Puppet worked with 85% of the largest banks in the world and four out of five of the worlds largest technology companies, Illustrating the wide range of high level organisations who rely on Puppet solutions on a daily basis.

While Perforce already has a strong DevOps portfolio, thanks to the purchase of Puppet, the business will be able to place a greater focus on scaling and hopefully address many long-standing automation challenges that face businesses of today.

As one of the pioneers of infrastructure-as-code, Puppet has directly benefited more than 40,000 organisations who have made use of either open source or commercial solutions offered by the business. Thanks to this acquisition, Perforce bill be able to expand their offering and introduce new capabilities for DevOps teams.
