US-based DevOps accelerator JFrog has acquired universal DevOps Intelligence platform CloudMunch. The acquisition was made in a bid to expand its product offerings for developers.
This deal marks the third strategic acquisition by JFrog in the last eight months. JFrog acquired Dimon, experts in CI/CD and bot automation and Conan, the fast-growing open source C/C++ package manager.
The CloudMunch acquisition will allow JFrog’s BI and analytics to drive DevOps forward, scaling software releases, and continuous updates.
Shlomi Ben Haim, CEO and Co-founder of JFrog stated, “Next Gen DevOps will need insights into the release flow and a better understanding of the ROI on fast releases. With CloudMunch on board, we can now provide the insight layer that will share DevOps flow analytics. We are thrilled by this union with CloudMunch and team members that are highly skilled and, just as importantly, their engineering culture and values fit with JFrog’s obsession with customer happiness and quality.”
Adoption of DevOps tools such as data measurement and improved software update release cycles are key to succeed in today’s digital-first world. JFrog solves critical pieces of the DevOps toolchain like safely storing, managing, and distributing binaries. However, as DevOps becomes even more of a necessity, it’s no longer enough to have high-performance tools in place for digital agility. Organisations need to maximise performance further.
