I’ll admit I was confused at first given Perforce is really only well-known in the gaming industry (at least in my experience). Most of my coworkers hadn’t even heard of Perforce before.

But I think it is a good opportunity for Peforce to expand beyond their traditional product set. Excited to see what the future holds.

... which is most definitely a good thing! 😀
