Harness to Acquire Split Software: A Game-Changing Move in Feature Management and Experimentation


Joint Solution will be Natively Integrated into the Harness Platform, Giving Software Development Teams Unparalleled Speed, Control, and Insight

SAN FRANCISCO, May 29, 2024 /PRNewswire/ -- Harness, the Modern Software Delivery Platform® company, today announced it has entered into a definitive agreement to acquire Split Software, a leading Feature Management and Experimentation provider. This strategic move will define a new standard in software delivery, empowering companies to innovate faster and more efficiently than ever before.

Companies must adapt quickly to stay competitive in today's fast-paced digital landscape. Modern companies are transforming their software delivery processes to keep pace with the acceleration of software delivery, investing in tools that enable them to experiment, measure, and deploy new products and features without compromising customer experience or application stability.

"We've seen immense market demand from our customers for an advanced feature management solution," said Jyoti Bansal, co-founder and CEO of Harness. "We're doubling down on our Feature Management and Experimentation investment with our acquisition of Split. These critical capabilities add another robust capability to our platform, supporting the shift towards faster software delivery and adding value across the entire Software Development Lifecycle."

"The moment of feature release is a critical touchpoint between the developer and user. Our mission at Split has been to give development teams the confidence to accelerate with control and the freedom to innovate with ease. To further this mission, I couldn't think of a better partner than Harness. Harness is automating and integrating every stage of software development," said Brian Bell, CEO of Split. "Together, we will have the mos comprehensive software delivery platform on the market."



With the acquisition of Split, Harness will offer a robust feature management and experimentation solution that enables customers to build, deploy, and release software while running A/B tests to experiment and measure feature adoption. Built on the foundational capabilities of Harness's AI technology, AIDA, our joint solution will unlock the future of DevOps by delivering smart features that help developers ship with confidence. It will be integrated seamlessly into the Harness Software Delivery platform, and businesses will no longer need to purchase single-point solutions to meet their end-to-end software delivery requirements.

"We are incredibly excited to see Split join the Harness platform," said Kevin Long, VP of Engineering at ClickUp. "Modern software delivery requires complex techniques like GitOps and experimentation, and now both of these capabilities will be available as a part of a single seamlessly integrated platform. As a long-time customer of both companies, we look forward to the next generation of DevOps platform innovation as they continue to deliver cutting edge solutions to the market."


Our mission at Harness is to revolutionize software development and deployment, ensuring every team can deliver code to its users quickly, reliably, efficiently, and securely. With this acquisition, Harness reaffirms its commitment to enhancing its comprehensive software delivery platform, built with best-in-class product modules, to drive innovation and boost developer productivity.
