Appfire announced the acquisition of RoninPixels.
As part of the acquisition, RoninPixels’ three co-founders and team will join Appfire to bring data visualization technology to Appfire’s growing platform of digital transformation apps.
“Teams who see and understand data before they take action get better results,” said Randall Ward, Co-Founder and CEO, Appfire. “With RoninPixels, we are extending our platform to provide our customers with immersive, intelligent, real-time visualization hubs across a range of collaboration tools. I am thrilled to welcome Gorka Puente, Javier Coira, and Iñigo Gonzalez to Appfire.”
This team came together within the Atlassian ecosystem in 2015 and founded RoninPixels in 2020 with a mission to make data visual, accessible and more actionable. The team is passionate about empowering better collaboration, productivity and focus between teams. RoninPixels adds more intelligence to data, so teams can get more out of the Atlassian suite and complimentary software products.
The company’s Dashboard Hub for Jira and Confluence products instantly create dashboards with pre-defined templates, custom charts, and more than sixty preset metrics to visualize and report on ITSM, DevOps & Agile data. These apps provide a central hub with integrations for the Atlassian suite, including Jira Software, Jira Work Management, Jira Service Management, Statuspage, Opsgenie, Insight, Confluence, and Bitbucket, with a robust roadmap of additional planned integrations. It also provides a secure way to share reports with stakeholders outside these platforms.
“We started RoninPixels to give enterprise customers something meaningful to look at, with simple data source connections and instant metric visualizations,” commented Gorka Puente, Ph.D., Co-Founder and product manager, RoninPixels. “Joining Appfire gives us the opportunity to focus on integrating our technology with additional products and platforms, with the backing of a company that has processes and teams in place for Cloud security programs, Data Center testing, product support, finance, and all the other things we need to operate our business at scale.”
