Single Source of Truth

Store files of all types and sizes, including large graphic files, with Helix Core version control.

  • Handle millions of assets and transactions a day.
  • Version, merge, deploy, and roll back seamlessly.
  • Meet delivery deadlines with fewer errors.

Branching With Brains

Let dev teams visualize branch relationships and manage change with Helix Streams, or branches with brains.  

  • Simplify codeline management.
  • Streamline component-based development (compared to Git submodules).
  • Manage complex coding projects, even as you scale.

Code Review & Collaboration

Foster open communication and visibility among departments with Helix Swarm, a code review & collaboration hub that integrates directly with Helix Core.

  • Unite teams through painless peer reviews.
  • Improve product quality and speed of delivery.
  • Create fast, seamless workflows.

Lifecycle Traceability

Track and control the flow of quality through development with Helix ALM.

  • Find and fix bugs before they reach customers.
  • Simplify compliance and survive your next audit.
  • Boost DevOps productivity wherever users are, with flexible, convenient workflows.

Code Quality

Strike a perfect balance between code quality and accelerated development cycles with Helix QAC and Klocwork static analyzers.

  • Detect important issues easily, automatically.
  • Support CI.
  • Help teams comply with coding standards.
  • Customize to your coding language (C, C++, C#, and Java).

Continuous Delivery

Eliminate the fear and pain of large, sluggish releases with Helix Core. And get one step closer to Continuous Delivery.

  • Integrate work from contributors daily — even automatically.
  • Create builds (not chaos) within the organization.
  • Deliver releases effortlessly.

Continuous Integration

Continuous Integration helps you achieve Continuous Delivery by automating the potentially painful integration phase of development.

Klocwork firmly integrates with build tools such as Jenkins and TeamCity to better support continuous analysis of your code during the build process. This unique capability of Klocwork provides faster feedback to developers, ensuring Continuous Code Quality across your CI/CD pipelines and auto-discovery of any code quality, compliance, or security issues. By using Klocwork, you’ll have fewer errors and a codebase that’s easier to maintain.


Product Planning 

Plan quickly, collaboratively, and transparently with Hansoft, an Agile planning tool for DevOps.

  • Combine Agile and Waterfall methods in one project.
  • Adapt plans in real-time, to real-world change.
  • Keep projects and portfolios moving forward.

Seamless Tool Chain

Perforce products integrate with many popular tools, so you can enhance your existing environment.

The Helix Core Jenkins plugin, for example, simplifies continuous delivery by supporting versioning directly within Jenkins. Additional out-of-the-box plugins and integrations connect Helix Core to build and reporting tools, such as Chef, Puppet, and Docker.
