Perforce and Trace3 Partner to Overcome Challenges to Scaling DevOps in the Enterprise

MINNEAPOLIS, Oct. 24, 2017 — Perforce Software, a provider of solutions to enterprise teams requiring productivity, visibility, and scale along the development lifecycle, announced today its partnership with Trace3, a premier provider of IT solutions and consultation services. The partnership underscores a joint commitment to helping customers optimize their technology development and delivery processes so that they can release faster and more often.

Enterprises don't need to be sold on the value of DevOps. They're already rushing to adopt a set of tools and processes that deliver on its promises: 200 times more frequent deployments, three times lower change failure rate, and 24 times faster recovery from failure according to the 2016 State of DevOps Report. Yet DevOps initiatives that scale at more than a team level often meet roadblocks due to lack of central governance and automation. 

The Perforce and Trace3 partnership addresses these challenges.

"Trace3 offers expertise in managing complex DevOps implementations and boasts impressive consultancy experience gained from working with organizations to meet their specific needs," said Doug Miller, Senior Director Strategic Partnerships at Perforce. "Together we can join forces to bring fully integrated solutions to the enterprise."

The Helix platform, including Helix Core, Helix ALM, and Helix TeamHub, along with the recently acquired Hansoft for enterprise agile planning, enables DevOps at scale by uniquely solving the scaling challenges mid-sized to large enterprises are facing as they transition to Agile development methodologies, modern development workflows, and automated continuous integration pipelines. 

"Perforce is constantly innovating and enhancing their product portfolio, which means that customers in the software development and IT community will not only benefit from the industry's most securable, scalable version control platform, but also leading-edge technology for increased quality, speed, and control throughout the entire project lifecycle," said Marc Hornbeek, Principal Consultant – DevOps, at Trace3.
