Idera Acquires Xblend Software
May 05, 2021

Idera announced the acquisition of Xblend Software, the provider of two Atlassian Marketplace applications: Xray and Xporter.

Xray and Xporter join Idera's DevOps business unit, strengthening Idera’s ability to serve development, testing, QA, and DevOps teams in the Atlassian ecosystem.

Xblend’s flagship product, Xray, is a test management solution that empowers software teams who use Jira to plan, track, and release exceptional software. Xray provides an intuitive test management experience within Jira, customizable for every team’s specific software quality lifecycle needs. Xray’s collaboration-first approach and ability to migrate tests from legacy tools to a Jira-enabled platform deliver the promise of DevOps to businesses of every size.

Xray bolsters Idera’s DevTestOps offering that includes brands - TestRail (test case management platform) and Ranorex (UI test automation tool). Xray will continue to operate as a stand-alone business and focus on serving customers in the growing test management for Jira market. Bringing Xray and TestRail under the same umbrella allows Idera to support customers who develop, test, and release high-quality software regardless of their tech stack or scale.

Xblend also offers Xporter, a reporting app for Jira that enables teams to share information with ease. Xporter allows for on-demand and scheduled reports from Jira in many formats, including Word, Excel, and PDF. Xporter also delivers native integrations with many other Jira apps to provide an unparalleled reporting experience for customers worldwide.

Xblend’s suite of products benefit approximately 10 million Jira-based users globally, including companies such as BMW, NASA, Lufthansa, Nike, Samsung, Porsche, Disney, JP Morgan, and Vodafone. As companies across industries embrace DevOps methodologies, Xblend provides the tools to enable digital transformation through extensible test management and reporting platforms. Xblend helps businesses of all sizes produce high-quality products, conduct rapid evaluation, and accelerate release schedules.

“...Both brands demonstrate a commitment to high-quality, focused solutions with clear value to customers,” said Tyler Parramore, GM of Idera’s DevOps Business. “Xray, in particular, will significantly improve our ability to reach customers in the Atlassian ecosystem and will join TestRail and Ranorex to enhance Idera's premier DevTestOps offering.”

“As part of Idera and a portfolio of world-class DevOps tools, Xblend will accelerate efforts that empower teams to develop and deploy better software. Together with Idera, we renew our commitment to deliver best-in-class products that bring game-changing value to customers,” said Pedro Gonçalves, Xblend’s Co-Founder and CEO.
