DETROIT, Oct. 24, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Compuware (Nasdaq:CPWR), the technology performance company, is recognizing nearly 50 years of mainframe innovation with an interactive infographic illustrating "big iron's" most notable achievements -- and some interesting technological, political and social events that happened along the way.

The infographic traces the mainframe's historical milestones that began with the introduction of the IBM System/360 in the 1960s through the present day, when Compuware announced it was "lighting up" the mainframe with Compuware APM ® for Mainframe. Short video insets feature Compuware's most experienced mainframe software developers discussing their unique perspective on the past, present and future of mainframe innovation, and the impact of the transitioning workforce on mainframe software development.

"The mainframe has powered some of the world's most significant IT advancements and today remains a cornerstone of enterprise IT," said Kris Manery, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Compuware Mainframe Solutions business unit. "Throughout the decades chronicled in this infographic, Compuware has remained committed to the mainframe, even as so-called industry 'experts' incorrectly predicted its demise. With innovations like the modernized Compuware Workbench, test data optimization solutions, and the recent advancements in mainframe application performance, we enable our customers to leverage the power of their mainframe investments in ways that both grow and differentiate their business."
