Compuware Presents Live Webcast:

DETROIT, Sept. 18, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Compuware Corporation (Nasdaq:CPWR), the technology performance company, today announced a live webcast featuring Dr. Thomas Mendel, founder of analyst firm Research in Action. During this webcast, Dr. Mendel will highlight key findings from a survey on application performance in the cloud and detail why CIOs believe it's a top priority for cloud success.
Title: Cutting Through the Fog: Application Performance in the Cloud
When: Thursday, September 20, 2012
Time: 3 p.m. U.K. time / 10 a.m. Eastern time
Presenters: Dr. Thomas Mendel, Founder, Research in Action; Michael Allen, EMEA Strategic Director, Compuware APM
Why: IT professionals spend 35 percent of their time firefighting, according to analyst firm Research in Action. Moving applications to the cloud, instrumenting them, and enforcing end-to-end performance service level agreements (SLAs) can significantly make things better, reducing friction between teams and increasing operational agility.
  However, to manage applications in the cloud, old tooling won't cut it. You need new solutions to see through the extra complexity: solutions that are predictive, business-smart, and capture the details of how every single user interacts with your applications.
What: During this free webcast, attendees will learn:
  -- why CIOs believe end-to-end performance visibility is a key priority for cloud success;
  -- survey results that highlights how IT service management is evolving around cloud and virtualization trends, and why proactive IT organizations are investing now to be more versatile and do more with less; and
  -- insight into Compuware's new generation of APM with emphasis on managing cloud-delivered applications to exceed user expectations.
