Perforce to Acquire BlazeMeter
September 30, 2021

Perforce Software agreed to acquire the BlazeMeter Continuous Testing platform from Broadcom.

Financial terms were not disclosed.

This acquisition builds on Perforce's growing application quality portfolio, comprised of the industry-standard web and mobile testing platform, Perfecto, and static application security testing products (Klocwork and QAC).

"The addition of BlazeMeter CT reinforces our focus on the application quality market," said Mark Ties, CEO and President, Perforce. "With Perfecto, our presence in SAST, and now BlazeMeter, Perforce can continue solving the most difficult quality challenges in DevOps for our global customer base..."

BlazeMeter CT is a complete, integrated, continuous testing platform built on and fully compatible with open source. Used by some of the largest global enterprises, BlazeMeter CT provides a single solution for application quality for all teams across the CI/CD pipeline. The SaaS-based platform is a Gartner Peer Insights Customers' Choice for Software Test Automation.

BlazeMeter CT is built on BlazeMeter, a preferred solution for load and performance testing, and includes additional, unified functionality including API testing and monitoring in a single unified platform which allows organizations to speed digital transformation, by shifting testing left, and right.

"This is a great opportunity for BlazeMeter to join forces with Perforce, where it will benefit tremendously from the widespread community support and broad open-source development partner ecosystem that Perforce is known for," said Serge Lucio, VP and GM Enterprise Software Division, Broadcom. "We are proud of the accomplishments this team has made in building this exceptional product and expect this transition to help BlazeMeter and its customers flourish and grow in the broader market. Combined with Perforce strengths in mobile testing, its focus on the DevOps ecosystem, and its broad portfolio of developer and tester focused solutions, we believe BlazeMeter will be in an ideal position to further execute on its vision."

"Customer engagement has gone almost completely digital requiring organizations to deliver stellar customer experiences to remain competitive," said Tim Russell, CPO, Perforce. "The addition of the BlazeMeter Continuous Testing platform expands our solution enabling organizations to accelerate the delivery of quality experiences."

Completion of the acquisition is subject to customary closing conditions, and the transaction is expected to close in October 2021.
