DETROIT, Dec. 12, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Compuware Corporation (Nasdaq:CPWR) announced today that it has been positioned by Gartner Inc. in the "Magic Quadrant for Integrated IT Portfolio Analysis (IIPA) Applications" based on analyst evaluation of the company's market-leading project and portfolio management solution Changepoint. 1 "The IIPA software market helps IT managers link, monitor and analyze their activities within a singular IT portfolio. This provides CIOs and other executives with holistic information about the IT portfolio when making difficult decisions and determining the state of their IT strategies. Products in this market strive to serve up the correct, interrelated perspectives, views and considerations that are needed to make strategic decisions, without forcing users deep into the bowels of detailed management and process automation," said Dan Stang, Research Director, Gartner, and Jim Duggan, Research VP in the report. Gartner-identified "Leaders" in the IIPA Magic Quadrant meet many portfolio management needs of multiple domains within IT. The products of Leaders can, among other things, support many different IT portfolio scenarios and multiple IT domain roles, while interweaving these portfolios and scenarios through the identification of interrelationships and interdependencies. "We are delighted with Compuware's placement within the 'Leaders' Quadrant in this important and timely piece of research," said Lori Ellsworth, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Compuware Changepoint business unit. "The recognition of our capabilities in the Application Portfolio Management discipline is particularly gratifying. Over the last year we have seen a resurgence of interest among IT organizations in achieving greater efficiency through a better understanding of their IT and application portfolios. Leading edge organizations are acting as a service to the business, as they seek to be smarter about the deployment of resources and the opportunity to control costs."
