Perforce has announced that it has signed a definitive agreement to acquire Delphix and its data management solutions.

Delphix's data management software platform enables scalable automation, governance, and compliance of enterprise data throughout the application lifecycle. Financial terms of the transaction were not disclosed.

"The addition of Delphix to our portfolio adds critical data management capabilities that help enterprise organisations realise an automated and accelerated DevOps pipeline," said Jim Cassens, CEO of Perforce. "In addition to data automation and compliance, we are also excited to provide our customers with the operational efficiencies and reduced costs afforded by the Delphix platform through lower storage expenditures and footprint. We look forward to working with the Delphix team to continue delivering data management innovation to our customers."

Many enterprise organisations today consider data to be one of their most important assets. The ability to harness, mine and analyse data generated daily is critical to making thoughtful decisions and creating competitive advantages. Delphix supports customers as they look to scale data usage for analytics and testing purposes, while releasing applications up to 200% faster. The Company's capabilities in data virtualisation and data masking allow organisations to more easily spin up, refresh, and tear down private and public Cloud-based data environments, enhancing application delivery pipelines.

"We founded Delphix over 15 years ago to help companies automate data and accelerate digital transformation. Today, we enable data governance, compliance, and automation across the multicloud for many of the world's biggest brands," said Jedidiah Yueh, CEO of Delphix. "As part of Perforce, we will be positioned to continue innovating and help more customers realise the strategic power of our data platform."

The addition of Delphix builds on Perforce's existing infrastructure automation offering through acceleration of on-demand delivery, self-service test environments, and continuous testing offerings to deliver Shift Left testing with accurate, compliant, and timely test data. With this acquisition, Perforce continues to demonstrate its commitment to provide customers with scaled DevOps solutions that help solve the world's largest enterprises' automation challenges.

"This strategic acquisition positions Perforce to harness the growing demand for enterprise- scale data management in testing, AI modeling, and analytics," said Evan Daar, Partner at Francisco Partners, and Sean Courtney, Senior Vice President at Clearlake. "The addition of Delphix further enhances the capabilities Perforce can offer to its valued customers, and we look forward to catalysing this opportunity to drive continued momentum for the platform."

The acquisition is subject to customary closing conditions and is expected to close in the second quarter of 2024. Centerview Partners acted as exclusive financial adviser to Delphix in connection with the transaction.
