Compuware Mainframe Agility-Boosting Capabilities Explored In New Ptak Associates Commentary

Stocks in this article: CPWR

DETROIT, March 20, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Compuware Corporation (Nasdaq:CPWR), the technology performance company, today announced that analyst firm Ptak Associates LLC has penned a report discussing the benefits of new integrations between Compuware's Mainframe Application Performance solutions and Developer Productivity solutions. Compuware united the tools that find problems with those that fix them to automate and simplify key processes, making it easier for operations and development teams to quickly identify and resolve application problems and exceptions.

The commentary titled, " Compuware Mainframe Application Performance + Developer Productivity Solutions = Smoother Handoffs, Faster Problem Resolution" analyzes a multitude of challenges development and operations teams experience, such as siloed work environments that hamper collaboration, manual processes that result in prolonged problem resolution times, and a growing shortage of skilled staff. In addition, performance expectations are increasing as the mainframe is expected to support an ever-expanding number of customer facing services.

Ptak Associates states in the report: "Compuware is in an excellent position to address these challenges. As a supplier of mainframe performance management and development solutions, they have been helping IT teams collect detailed analyses of mainframe and, more recently, distributed application performance problems and exceptions, for more than 30 years. They also have conducted studies that confirmed the challenges facing management and mainframe staff, as well as the business impact of reduced productivity and opportunities."

The report goes on to detail how Compuware's recent enhancements to Strobe, Abend-AID and the Compuware Workbench development environment, coupled with new levels of automation and simplification, enable teams to work more productively and collaboratively. This greater focus on quickly resolving problems means they can dedicate more time to revenue-generating projects. In the final analysis, Ptak Associates writes, "Compuware is among the elite vendors recognizing that success lies not in simply solving the immediate 'want to have' feature/function requirements articulated by customers. They go a step further to a creative blending of technology and expertise in order to deliver solutions that address broader issues that cause problems. More and more customers recognize and appreciate this approach."
