The Addition of Zephyr for Jira, the No. 1 Grossing App on the Atlassian Marketplace, to the SmartBear Portfolio Will Create the Most Comprehensive Set of Test Management Solutions

SOMERVILLE, Mass. and SAN JOSE, Calif. – Aug. 28, 2018 – SmartBear, the leader in software quality tools for teams, will acquire Zephyr to create the most comprehensive set of test management solutions in the market. With this acquisition, SmartBear reinforces its commitment to provide software development teams with the most innovative tools to build, test, and monitor great software, faster. The popularity of Zephyr for Jira has catapulted it to become the No. 1 grossing app on Atlassian Marketplace with 18,000 teams using its tools to execute over 40 million tests. SmartBear will continue to extend and deepen the Zephyr product line and strengthen its relationship with Atlassian by leveraging SmartBear tools to bring more value to the users of the Atlassian Marketplace.

“We are thrilled to have Zephyr join the SmartBear team,” said Justin Teague, CEO of SmartBear. “The acquisition of Zephyr will establish SmartBear as the leader in test management and broaden our portfolio of high-impact, easy-to-use tools, which includes SoapUI, TestComplete, SwaggerHub, CrossBrowserTesting, Collaborator, and AlertSite.”

Test management is a critical component of being able to develop, test, and deploy high quality software at the speed digital businesses demand. However, each software development teams’ test management requirements are unique, depending on their development methodology, organizational structure, and processes. By adding Zephyr to the portfolio, SmartBear will offer the most comprehensive set of test management offerings in the market. Zephyr for Jira supports Atlassian customers that want native test management inside Jira, Hiptest supports Agile and DevOps teams embracing Behavior Driven Development (BDD) and Continuous Testing, and Zephyr Enterprise supports enterprises looking for a modern replacement for HP Quality Center.

“We created Zephyr to help organizations continuously improve efficiencies and collaboration for their software testers and developers,” said Scott Johnson, CEO of Zephyr. “By leveraging the industry expertise and array of SmartBear solutions, our customers will continue to benefit from the tools they know and love, while now being able to solve additional software development challenges related to building, testing, and monitoring software applications across the UI and API layer.”

“The Atlassian Marketplace makes it seamless for Atlassian’s more than 125,000 customers to extend the functionality of their Atlassian tools,” said Scott Farquhar, CEO of Atlassian. “We are thrilled to work more closely with SmartBear moving forward to advance the Zephyr product line and also bring more SmartBear industry-leading software development and testing tools into the Atlassian Marketplace.”

“There is a growing need for integrated lifecycle management tools to support a variety of software development environments,” said Carl Lehmann, Principal Analyst at 451 Research. “SmartBear’s acquisition of Zephyr is representative of the accelerating trend we see in modern digital enterprises to strengthen support for diverse development and testing toolchains.”
