"Compuware today covers all aspects of the deep application transaction management market extremely well," Mendel continued. "By enabling customers to choose between SaaS and traditional deployment methods, the outlook for Compuware is positive."

Research in Action defines the APM market as the monitoring and managing of the performance and availability of software applications. It values the market at around $5 billion in software licenses, maintenance and SaaS revenues, with an annual growth rate of between 10-15 percent. In recent years, this market has become crowded, and the term APM has been diluted. As a result, Research in Action has focused on a subset of the APM market, examining solutions that monitor and manage the flow of the application transactions from the application origin to the end-user: Deep Application Transaction Management.

"This accolade shows clear recognition of Compuware's market leadership and long history of innovation, execution and delivery," said John Van Siclen, General Manager of Compuware's APM business unit. "Our new generation approach to APM and deep transaction management is setting a new industry standard and fundamentally changing the way that performance is managed. Ultimately, this is great news for Compuware and our customers alike, as we enable them to maximize the return on their investments in enterprise applications."
