Perforce Buys Agile Tool Vendor Hansoft

Perforce Software has announced the acquisition of Sweden-based Hansoft Technologies, a provider of enterprise Agile planning tools. The acquisition deepens the Perforce portfolio of solutions by adding a robust Agile planning and project management toolset.

Used mostly by AAA game studios, the Hansoft software empowers entire teams — from developers to managers to executives — with planning, management, and collaboration tools that improve efficiency and productivity. The software achieves this by synchronizing two entities that often have conflicting needs in Agile enterprises: the development team and the management team. Using Hansoft, team members are free to use their preferred combinations of Agile and Waterfall project management methodologies, including changing methodologies in flight, while managers and executives can make informed decisions with real-time insights and status provided by comprehensive visual dashboards.

The announcement comes some weeks after Perforce unveiled its latest solution, Helix TeamHub Enterprise, a code hosting and collaboration solution for multi-repository types that delivers significantly improved build performance for large-scale Git environments.
