Travis CI joins the Idera family

By Konstantin Hasse

When we started working on a Continuous Integration solution back in 2011, it was hard to imagine what Travis CI would become. Years later, we’re still continuously working to make our community and the tech industry better and stronger. Today we are excited to announce that Travis CI has been acquired by Idera, Inc. Idera is the parent company of many software productivity tools and will support us in delivering quality software to all of you, our users.

Grown out of the open source community, Travis CI became the leading CI solution and we now provide enhanced features, performance, and support to projects and teams of all sizes. We are proud to serve more than 700,000 people worldwide to build and test software applications. Our customers include IBM, Schibsted, and Zendesk, amongst many others. Together with Idera, we want to expand on this success and help many more people build better software faster.

Will anything change for me?

At Travis CI, we are committed to remaining the solid stand-alone solution you have come to rely on. We will continue to offer the same services to our hosted and on-premises users. With the support from our new partners, we will be able to invest in expanding and improving our core product, to have Travis CI be the best Continuous Integration and Development solution for software projects out there. We will join Idera’s Testing Tools division, which also includes TestRail, Ranorex, and Kiuwan.

What impact will this have on open source?

Open source is at the heart of Travis CI. We will continue to maintain a free, hosted service for open source projects, and will keep building features for the open source community. Additionally, our code will stay open source and under an MIT license. This is who we are, this is what made us successful.

What about the Travis Foundation?

The Travis Foundation has done phenomenal work running projects like Rails Girls Summer of Code, Diversity Tickets, Speakerinnen, and Prompt. While this is new territory for Idera, they are impressed with what we have built, and fully committed to not just to keep it running, but also see how we can increase our efforts in making the tech industry a better place for everyone.

We’re very excited to start off 2019 with the support of Idera and have a better platform to continue building and improving Travis CI for all of you. We’re happy to answer any questions on our Community Forum.
