Perforce Harnesses the Power of End-to-End Automation
This week, we announced that Perforce acquired AI-based mobile testing provider 21 Labs to help our customers deliver quality software faster. This acquisition is our 10th overall, our second test automation acquisition in less than a year and our third overall acquisition in that same time period. This news represents a significant and strategic milestone in strengthening our end-to-end portfolio of intelligent test automation solutions.
The rapid pace of change in mobile environments and the complexity of cross-platform apps have posed major challenges for organizations that rely on mobile applications. Enterprises are struggling with automating QA and accelerating the feedback loop from development and testing to ensure a quality user experience. In today’s crowded testing market, they’re looking for a comprehensive, reliable solution that addresses the testing lifecycle across all digital channels.
Ultimately, enterprises need a user-friendly platform to help streamline testing so they can focus their time and energy on innovation.
Together with 21 Labs, we’re able to do just that. We are the first to provide organizations with a complete continuous testing solution for mobile and web that quickly delivers combined, AI-driven insights to improve application quality to directly impact business success. Coupled with the recently announced Perfecto Scriptless solution for no-code web testing, and the addition of virtual devices to the Perfecto platform, our solutions help customers solve their toughest DevOps challenges.
As part of this acquisition, we’re thrilled to welcome 21 Labs Founder and CEO Shani Shoham — who will be part of our leadership team defining GTM strategy for our test automation platforms — and the entire 21 Labs team as we continue to build on our mission to help our customers deliver innovation at speed and at scale through the Power of Perforce.
This is the first of a few major announcements we’ll be making in 2021, further advancing our commitment to helping developers streamline their development processes and release quality mobile apps to market, faster. We will continue to demonstrate that commitment through the advancement of our technology pipeline and products.
