Top Analyst Firm Touts Benefits Of New Compuware APM For Mainframe Solution

Firm Cites Solution's Ability to Bridge Chasm Between Mainframe and Distributed Teams to Speed Up Mean Resolution Time, Reduce CPU Costs

DETROIT, Feb. 28, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Compuware Corporation (Nasdaq:CPWR), the technology performance company, today announced that leading analyst firm Ptak, Noel & Associates has published a report that praises the many benefits of Compuware APM for Mainframe, the industry's first and only solution that provides end-to-end visibility across the entire application delivery chain. The solution combines Compuware APM's patented PurePath Technology ® with mainframe application performance measurement and analysis solution Strobe, enabling enterprises to resolve performance problems faster, reduce MIPS costs, postpone hardware upgrades and accelerate time-to-market for new applications.

In the report, titled, " Compuware APM for Mainframe: Application Performance Management to Connect Distributed and Mainframe Environments," Ptak/Noel describes an all-too familiar situation within many IT organizations. Distributed and mainframe teams in large datacenters have little contact or connection with each other, even though their respective technologies are increasingly interconnected, driven primarily by customers accessing the mainframe via their mobile devices. When an application issue arises, the teams often gather in a "War Room" meeting to determine which infrastructure is experiencing the problem, resulting in hours and sometimes days of finger pointing until the issue is resolved.

Ptak/Noel states in the report: "Compuware APM for Mainframe can revolutionize the way that organizations handle problems. They now have a common tool all can use to determine the source of the problem. One bank said that a typical problem might take 40 person hours in the War Room to get a solution. Using the new Compuware products, the time was reduced to 15 minutes."

Ptak/Noel goes on to highlight other key benefits of Compuware APM for Mainframe, including the solution's ability to provide clear visibility into how distributed applications are impacting mainframe performance and vice versa. According to the firm, Compuware APM for Mainframe is a "valuable cost reduction tool" because it provides developers the intel they need to tweak or redesign applications to optimize performance and reduce CPU costs.

"Ptak/Noel's report is further evidence that our APM for Mainframe product truly does solve the cost and efficiency challenges IT organizations are experiencing today, as the application delivery chain becomes increasingly more complex," said Kris Manery, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Mainframe Solutions Business Unit, Compuware. "No other product on the market today provides this level of real-time visibility across all distributed tiers and into the depths of the mainframe. This new generation of APM is fundamentally changing how distributed and mainframe teams interact and work together to solve performance problems and evaluate, tweak and redesign applications to improve performance and reduce costs."
