Perforce Acquires Seapine Software

With 2016 winding to a close, Perforce is busy wrapping up a great year. Our goal over the last 365 days has been to offer an increasingly superior enterprise solution, one that enables large-scale technology and development projects for our customers.

As a capstone to the last 12 months, Perforce made an addition to our portfolio that guarantees 2017 will be a year to remember. For us, the best-in-class ALM solution from Seapine Software was the clear choice.

The depth and knowledge of the Seapine team is unmatched. Their expertise in ALM development pipelines–adding efficiency, traceability, and predictability at every stage–is a tremendous asset. This acquisition complements the existing Perforce solution set with additional tools to improve and accelerate the development process.

Seapine’s excellence has long been known in many industries. One Seapine customer, from a leading provider of security product solutions, calls Seapine’s ALM “Rock solid. No crashes and no lost data.” Another user in banking efficiency solutions added “the integration of system components is seamless, and is critical to the accuracy of our trace metrics and audit reporting.”

While we worked with Seapine during the lead-up to our agreement, it was energizing to see how closely our values align. Both organizations strive to deliver better products each and every day, and that effort will only increase now that Perforce and Seapine are one.

I am excited to help guide this new transition, along with former Seapine CEO turned Perforce CTO for ALM Solutions Rick Riccetti, and also Perforce CPO Tim Russell. We look forward to being a part of our customers’ most ambitious and innovative projects in the years to come.
