Compuware Remains A Leader In Gartner Application Performance Monitoring Magic Quadrant For Fourth Consecutive Year

Stocks in this article: CPWR

DETROIT, Dec. 20, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Compuware Corporation (Nasdaq:CPWR), the technology performance company delivering a new generation of APM, today announced that Gartner, Inc. has positioned Compuware in the "Leaders" quadrant of the " Magic Quadrant for Application Performance Monitoring (APM)" report i for the fourth consecutive year. Compuware is the only vendor who has consistently been in the "Leaders" quadrant since the report first published in 2010. Additionally, Compuware is once again positioned the furthest for 'completeness of vision' in the APM Magic Quadrant for the third consecutive year.

Compuware's APM business is at the forefront of innovation and continues to grow and gain market share at a rapid pace, while bolstering its already significant competitive foothold in the APM market.

According to Gartner, the demand for availability and performance monitoring tools is pushing rapid market growth and innovation ii. Additionally, Gartner says the demand and importance placed on APM tools has increased significantly during the past several years. This will continue as applications and infrastructures become more complex, dynamic and additional layers of abstraction are introduced (for example, virtualization, SDN, and API abstraction) iii.

By year-end 2013, Gartner estimates that the global spend for APM software licenses and first-year service contracts will grow to approximately $2.12 billion, which represents a 5.4% growth over the $2.01 billion spent in 2012. This 5.4% growth rate represents a deceleration from the 5.8% growth rate experienced between 2011 and 2012. i

"We are honored that Gartner has once again positioned Compuware the furthest for 'completeness of vision' for the third consecutive year, and to be the only firm cited as a leader in every APM Magic Quadrant they have published since 2010," said John Van Siclen, General Manager of Compuware's APM business unit. "With several large vendors losing placement in the leader's quadrant this year, it's confirmed, older "traditional" APM tools can no longer fully address today's modern business and technology requirements. A new generation APM approach is what the market is looking for, and we lead in this regard."
