Bitrise announced its first acquisition, Outlyer, to support the mission of making mobile developers' lives easier.

"Outlyer's self-service monitoring and analytics technology is an amazing example of how simple and scalable can also be incredibly powerful and versatile," said Barnabas Birmacher, co-founder and CEO of Bitrise.

"It has been a founding principle for Bitrise: We strive to give mobile developers the tools to easily automate the boring parts of their job, while at the same time supporting extremely advanced use cases that lead to incredibly successful apps. With Outlyer, we're expanding those capabilities beyond the release of your mobile application, into analytics and operations. All from within the same, easy-to-use, endlessly configurable mobile app development platform."

Outlyer's technology is in use by leading online services such as Netflix and the BBC to monitor and analyse millions of metrics in real-time. The entire Outlyer team joins Bitrise where they will initially focus on integrating their technology with the Bitrise platform, while supporting existing Outlyer customers. Through the acquisition, the Bitrise team grows to over 50 people, spread across its Budapest headquarters, new offices in both London and San Francisco as well as a growing number of remote workers. The company supports over 100,000 mobile developers worldwide, including teams from Buffer, Careem, Just-Eat, Virgin and more.

"We want to be the 'one screen' for mobile application development and operations", continued Birmacher. "By integrating with the countless services that mobile developers already use, we've made great strides towards achieving that goal. Outlyer brings in another piece of the puzzle: It's not just about launching an awesome product. These new monitoring and analytics capabilities will allow developers to ensure that their applications continue delighting end-users once they're actually installed on hundreds of millions of devices worldwide."

Outlyer has traditionally focused on cloud infrastructure and microservices in the broadest sense. As part of Bitrise, they will further specialize their technology to support mobile platforms specifically
