SOMERVILLE, Mass. and SAN JOSE, Calif. — October 01, 2018 —

SmartBear, the leader in software quality tools for teams, today announced it has completed its acquisition of Zephyr. With this acquisition, SmartBear offers the most comprehensive set of test management solutions on the market with Zephyr for Jira, Hiptest, and Zephyr Enterprise.


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.

SmartBear is committed to providing software teams with easy, innovative, high-impact tools to build, test, and monitor great software, faster. The addition of Zephyr broadens the company’s product portfolio which includes SoapUI, TestComplete, SwaggerHub, CrossBrowserTesting, Collaborator, and AlertSite.

“Being a customer of both Zephyr and SmartBear, I’m glad to see Zephyr joining SmartBear,” said Steven Holloway, Integration and Test Engineer at Harris Corp. “Both companies play a key role in enabling us to release quality software at an increasingly fast pace, and I’m eager to see future development between the tools.”

On August 28, 2018, SmartBear announced a definitive agreement to acquire Zephyr. With the close of the deal, 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.
