Perforce Recently Acquired Seapine–Why I’m Excited and Why You Should Be Too

seapine-logo-small-reg

If you’re a customer who has followed us for a while, last month’s acquisition announcement was probably a complete surprise. Rest assured, you’ll find it was a wonderful surprise.

The ink was barely dry on the acquisition agreement, announcing Seapine Software, Inc. would join Perforce, LLC, when customer inquiries began to arrive. “What is going to happen to the Seapine products?” “Are you going to continue to provide the same great level of support?” And so on. Reading these, I couldn’t be prouder of what Seapine meant to our customers. It was clear we succeeded in what we set out to do when Kelly and I founded Seapine 21 years ago—create products that positively impact how people build quality software and create a company that sets a high standard for friendly, responsive customer interaction. It also reinforced the benefits of the acquisition.

21 years is a long time to sustain a company in our industry. And while capital constraints often dictate a carefully measured path, I’ve always wanted to do more and do it faster. So this year, I decided it was time to enter the capital market. And a wonderful thing happened, I met the new management team at Perforce LLC, a long-time partner (since 2001). It was clear from the first meeting that Perforce and Seapine were a perfect fit. From the similar histories of our founding and growth, to the “customer first” emphasis we place on high quality support, to the focus on helping companies innovate faster with higher quality, our two companies were meant to be one. So it became.

The team at Perforce shares our vision for tackling the difficult development challenges you face. Now, as partners with Perforce, Seapine has access to the resources to accelerate our product development. If you like what you’ve seen from Seapine over the years, prepare to be amazed.

I am excited to be joining the Perforce team as CTO, ALM Solutions, where I will be leading the ALM product strategy and direction. I’ll be working closely with Tim Russell, CPO and Janet Dryer, CEO of Perforce. We’ve just begun this journey together and will start firming up the long-term product roadmaps over the next month or so. We’ll communicate with you as the plan develops and, as always, your input is welcome.

So stay tuned. I’m excited about Perforce + Seapine and I think you will be too.


Traceability’s Importance for Life Sciences Product Development

Product complexity continues to increase in the life sciences industry, making it more important than ever for companies to effectively leverage traceability in their product development process. However, more than half of industry experts surveyed say they are unable to use traceability for more than compliance purposes, according to the 2016 Life Sciences Product Development Survey Report. What prevents them from making better use of this key product development component?

[Press Release] Perforce Announces Acquisition of ALM Provider Seapine Software

perforcelogoACQUISITION EXPANDS PORTFOLIO OF DEVELOPER AND DESIGNER PRODUCTIVITY AND COLLABORATION TOOLS

Minneapolis, MN, November 17, 2016Perforce Software, a leader in version control and source code management, today announced its acquisition of Seapine Software, a leading provider of application lifecycle management (ALM) solutions, based in Mason, Ohio.

This acquisition expands the Perforce portfolio of developer and designer tools beyond enterprise class version management and code review, and provides customers with additional capabilities across the development pipeline. Seapine’s ALM solution accelerates development and delivery cycles through more efficient management of the product development process.

“The Seapine suite of products strongly complements the Perforce portfolio and both companies address many of the same enterprise product development needs including traceability, auditability, and predictability of the development process for high value assets,” says Janet Dryer, Perforce CEO. “The depth and experience the Seapine team has in ALM and building efficiency and quality into the development pipeline is a welcome addition to the Perforce team.”

Seapine’s ALM solutions help companies manage the process of developing high-quality complex products—often in regulated industries, such as life sciences, automotive and financial services. Seapine’s solution consists of scalable team-based tools for superior requirements management, issue tracking, software configuration management, automated software testing, load testing, and test case management. When used together, these tools provide end-to-end traceability of artifacts, resulting in increased product quality and development predictability.

“We found the technology, teams, and application development expertise at these two companies to be a great fit,” says Rick Riccetti, CEO, Seapine Software. “Our leadership team is excited about the opportunity to expand the capabilities and the reach of the Seapine portfolio with the resources and support of an organization like Perforce.”
