Currently, many companies are working on digital transformation (DX) in order to rapidly deliver digital business. In order to realize DX, the importance of DevOps, in which the development and operations departments collaborate to build and operate systems, is being recognized, and DevOps software is increasingly implemented in enterprises. Also, the total addressable market for DevOps is $18 billion, reflecting the tremendous growth potential for Copado’s solutions.
Copado provides a leading DevOps platform powering some of the world’s largest digital transformations. Copado is redefining how to achieve success with enterprise SaaS and low-code platforms with its data-driven approach to delivering faster, higher quality releases and improving trust across digital transformation projects. Additionally, the company completed acquisitions of New Context Services, a DG’s U.S. subsidiary, to bring additional security and AI-enabled automated testing capabilities to its platform. Further, Copado will use the new funding to expand its DevOps and AI-enabled testing solutions across the leading enterprise SaaS platforms driving today’s digital transformation projects. Proceeds will also be used to fuel international growth, particularly into the Asia-Pacific (APAC) market with DG Group’s support.
