Stocks in this article: CPWR

DETROIT, March 19, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Compuware Corporation (Nasdaq:CPWR), the technology performance company, today announced the latest release of its market-leading professional services automation (PSA) and project portfolio management (PPM) solution, Changepoint. This edition of Compuware Changepoint delivers the next generation of business analytics, enhanced mobility and usability improvements in core areas.

"Today's release of Changepoint delivers on our roadmap with significant enhancements demanded by large, globally dispersed services and IT organizations," said Lori Ellsworth, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Compuware Changepoint Business Unit. "Through a combination of key partnerships and product advancements, we are providing our worldwide audience of customers with a solution that offers industry-leading business intelligence and is responding to the needs of the mobile business workplace."

Best of Breed Business Intelligence with Advanced Business Analytics

Leading services and IT organizations leverage business information to shape strategy, drive decision making and align activity with business direction and priorities.

To enable services and IT organizations to gain advantage from the wealth of data they collect, Changepoint now delivers advanced Business Analytics from a leading third party vendor seamlessly in its solution. Enhanced business analytics provide increased transparency and visibility into the large volumes of data generated by services and IT organizations, enabling executives to more easily generate metrics and monitor the key performance indicators vital for sustained business growth.

This offering, fully integrated within Changepoint provides:

  • Enhanced reporting usability and flexibility
  • Active offline reporting
  • Microsoft plug-in support
  • Evolving library of reports and dashboards to accelerate time to value
  • Respect for Changepoint's robust security model, and extensible data model

"Big Data -- the enormous volumes of data being generated within companies and how companies can leverage it for business intelligence -- is forcing organizations to invest in analytics, but standalone platforms are complex and hard to integrate," said John Ragsdale, Vice President of Technology Research, TSIA. "Compuware Changepoint's decision to embed Business Analytics into its solution will allow services organizations to better interpret business information, enabling improved execution of services strategy -- without a data scientist. Over half of TSIA members have budget for analytic tools in 2012-2013, and end user-focused controls are a key requirement."
