Software delivery optimisation firm Borland Software has completed the acquisition of Segue Software in a $100m (£56m) deal.

The acquisition of Segue, a specialist in software quality and testing, forms part of Borland’s plans to refocus on its application lifecycle management business. It follows moves announced in February to find a buyer for its integrated development environment business, including the Developer Studio and JBuilder product lines.

Tod Nielsen, Borland’s chief executive, said, “With Segue’s talented people and best-of-breed products, we are well positioned to change the way our industry looks at software quality – making quality a priority not just for testers and quality assurance teams but for every individual involved in delivering high value software.”

Borland has begun the process of integrating its application lifecycle management products with Segue’s Silk and SilkCentral product lines, in the run up to delivering a new Borland Lifecycle Quality Management package later this year.
