Compuware Announces Winners Of Inaugural Mobile App Challenge At Detroit's Marcus Garvey Academy

DETROIT, Oct. 31, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Compuware Corporation (Nasdaq:CPWR), the technology performance company, announced the conclusion of its inaugural Mobile App Challenge conducted at Detroit's Marcus Garvey Academy.

Team Brainy Bunch, comprised of 5 th graders Jordan Bell; Candance Montgomery; Desire Taylor; and Gabrielle Taylor; and mentored by Compuware professionals, presented the winning concept to the panel of judges yesterday afternoon at Marcus Garvey. The judging panel consisted of Marcus Garvey Principal James Hearn; Compuware CTO Paul Czarnik; Compuware VP of Strategic Services Bob Kennedy; Detroit Public Schools Data Center, Network & Communications Services Executive Director Mark Bartoski; and Matt Roush, CBS Radio Technology Reporter and Editor of WWJ's Technology Report.

"Every organization today relies on technology to accomplish its objectives. Be it a Fortune 50 global enterprise or a middle school in Detroit, technology is intrinsic," said Compuware CEO and President Bob Paul. "It is our responsibility as corporate citizens, educators and parents, to extend our resources and ensure that today's students emerge with the skill set to realize the opportunities in store for them."

Team Brainy Bunch conceived of a mobile app named "Live Better in Detroit" that aims to support a clean and beautiful city by providing information on topics such as recycling; available empty space for re-use; and lawn and garden care. The design also features an advice module to support moral and ethical decision making. The objective of the app is to help the neighborhood-based transformation of the city and its continued renaissance. The app concept from Team Brainy Bunch beat out worthy entries from their classmates for the honors with team App Kids coming in second and MGA Inventors earning third place. Four other teams participated in preliminary rounds of the competition, but did not proceed to the finals.

Compuware's Mobile Solutions Group will be bringing the students' concept to life through the development of a clickable prototype of the mobile app that will be unveiled in November. Learn more about the program, and see the prototype upon its completion, at http://www.compuware.com/en_us/about/community/mobile-app-challenge.html .

In celebration of their efforts, members of Team Brainy Bunch will join the Compuware Elves Champ, Chip, Bloomer and Violet as they cruise America's Thanksgiving Parade atop Compuware's Performance Workshop float. Also joining the students in this celebration will be 20 esteemed Elves from Compuware's professional staff.
