PORTLAND, Ore., June 07, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Puppet, the standard for automating the delivery and operation of the software that powers everything around us, today announced it has acquired Reflect, the data-visualization-as-a-service platform. Reflect’s technology will accelerate Puppet’s product innovation, empowering customers with intuitive, modern and flexible ways to harness insights to inform their journeys to pervasive automation.

“We’ve always helped customers mine valuable information about the state of their IT landscape and take action on it. With the innovation and talent in the marketplace today, we have an opportunity to improve that experience—giving customers new ways to leverage their data, and make faster, more informed decisions," said Sanjay Mirchandani, CEO, Puppet. "Reflect brings the right pedigree of modern technology and unique talent to make this a perfect match.”

Every company’s technology footprint is rapidly expanding, becoming more complex, and constantly producing data. Together, Puppet and Reflect help customers make better decisions as they progress on their journey to pervasive automation, with clearer insights, across every environment.

“Reflect helps organizations transform their raw data into visual stories that are easy to understand,” said Alex Bilmes, CEO and co-founder, Reflect. “With Puppet’s technology and expertise, we are able to capture an incredibly rich dataset, unlike any other available today. By joining forces we will be able to deliver value from that data through beautiful charts, visualizations and interactive data tools.”

Today’s news follows Puppet’s acquisition of Distelli, the continuous delivery automation software company, in September of last year. The addition of Distelli's container and application deployment offerings have empowered enterprises to expand automation across the entire software delivery lifecycle and accelerate their DevOps success.

“There is so much potential within the automation space, and Puppet is accelerating its investment in new technology to help our customers navigate this new world of software delivery. This is especially important as we continue to build the best team to deliver an aggressively expanding product portfolio that our customers love,” said Mirchandani. “We saw great success following the acquisition of Distelli last year and are excited to do it again with the addition of Reflect. This is just the latest step in the continued journey to pervasive automation.”

Based in Portland, Reflect will operate out of Puppet’s headquarters in Portland.
