Puppet and Reflect join forces!

I’m excited to share that Puppet has acquired Reflect, a privately held data-visualization-as-a-service platform based here in Portland, OR.

There’s no shortage of business intelligence products on the market today—but most are designed for business users. Reflect, however, set out to empower product and engineering teams: giving them a platform to easily add data analytics and engaging visualizations to the software applications they build. In turn, those product and engineering teams would deliver rich insights to their end users, giving them the information needed to make better and faster decisions.

At Puppet, we’ve always believed in empowering our users, too. Today our customers rely on Puppet products to mine valuable information about their IT estate, and take action on it. We constantly strive to enhance that experience. With Reflect’s technology and talent, we’ll be able to give customers new and engaging ways to visualize and leverage their data to make faster, more informed decisions as they progress on their journeys to pervasive automation.

There’s incredible innovation and talent in the technology market today, and we are in a fortunate position to capitalize on it to help us accelerate the value we bring to customers. Last September, we acquired Distelli’s continuous integration and continuous delivery (CI/CD) technology to ensure our customers can benefit from automation throughout their entire software production system. Today, Reflect brings us the ability to enhance our product portfolio so we can deliver powerful and highly interactive data visualizations to our customers as they progress on their journey to pervasive automation.

In just a few years, the Reflect team has forged new territory in a growing and important space. We’re fortunate to have their team join ours. Please join me in welcoming Reflect to Puppet!
