Compuware Unveils Workbench Innovations That Significantly Boost Developer Productivity

DETROIT, Jan. 29, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Compuware Corporation (Nasdaq:CPWR), the technology performance company, today announced important enhancements to the Compuware Workbench, a standardized point-and-click mainframe application development interface. The Workbench now features faster and more efficient file and data management capabilities -- including the ability to edit complex IMS databases -- as well as more robust debugging functionality, all designed to significantly boost developer productivity. The Workbench helps companies "future proof" mainframe development by providing an environment where new and inexperienced developers can produce high quality applications that drive business success.

"Without access to a modernized development interface, new developers would be deterred by the complex and antiquated mainframe development environment, leaving companies vulnerable to application outages and other business risks when experienced developers retire and take their knowledge with them," said Kris Manery, Senior Vice President, Mainframe Solutions Business Unit, Compuware.

The Latest Compuware Workbench Innovations

The Workbench File-AID Data Editor now supports browsing and editing of IMS databases in addition to DB2 and other mainframe file systems. As one of the older mainframe database and transaction management systems, IMS requires highly technical and specialized knowledge to manage and support. With this new Workbench enhancement for IMS, however, developers can easily edit, browse and understand IMS data constructs from within the same intuitive, standardized editor they use for other mainframe data types. Industry watchers will note that File-AID -- the cross-platform file and data management solution first introduced 30 years ago -- revolutionized how developers access and manage mainframe data files by providing quick and convenient browse, edit and utility functions from TSO/ISPF. Three decades of innovations later, File-AID continues to lead the industry with its new graphical user interface that fits the needs of a new breed of software developers.
