Puppet, the DevOps automation company, recently announced that it has acquired data-visualization-as-a-service platform Reflect Technologies.
Founded in 2015, Reflect is a Portland-based startup which raised $2.5 million in a seed capital funding in 2016. The difference between other data visualization companies and Reflect is that it delivers the products as a service. It helps enterprises to add the analytics capabilities to their software and further deliver those capabilities to end-customers.
The acquisition of Reflect will help Puppet to speed up its product innovation, so that it can deliver its customers the modern and flexible analytics capabilities with automation platform.
“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.”
Puppet believes that the integrated solution will help companies make better decisions as their footprints rapidly expand and become more complex. It will provide them clear insights across every platform.
“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.”
In September 2017, Puppet had acquired the continuous delivery automation software company Distelli to add container and application capabilities to its automation platform.
As a part of the acquisition, Puppet has absorbed all the products and employees of Reflect. The terms of the deal were not disclosed.
