Leading Provider of Global Information Services Selects Compuware dynaTrace^®
                                     for
               Quality Assurance during Application Development

LONDON, Nov. 28, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Compuware Corporation (Nasdaq:CPWR),
the technology performance company, today announced that Experian, a leading
provider of global information services for businesses, has implemented
Compuware APM^®— dynaTrace — as its solution for application performance
management (APM). With Compuware dynaTrace^®, Experian is able to reduce
time-to-market and improve the quality of new applications and services by
quickly pinpointing the source of performance issues during the early stages
of development and quality assurance cycles. This enables Experian to launch
new services in shorter time periods, which is a key business objective for
their data and analytics specialist.

"We need to deploy the latest and most advanced services for our customers as
quickly as possible, and this is where the information delivered by dynaTrace
offers the highest value," said Paul Hill, head of support and quality
assurance at Experian. "By implementing dynaTrace, we have the ability to dig
down into application code on a granular level during the quality assurance
(QA) stage, identifying the source of any performance problems picked up
during load testing."

"With our software architects, development and testing teams based in a number
of locations across different time zones, it's important that communication is
as clear and as detailed as possible," said Hill. "With dynaTrace, we are able
to identify exactly where performance issues originate and share transaction
snapshots that different teams can utilise consistently. This helps us to
remedy the root cause of any problems quickly and effectively, allowing us to
bring our latest services to market much faster, and ultimately deliver the
best customer experience possible."

Experian has grown rapidly over the past few years, both organically and
through acquisitions. Coupled with the nature of its business, this means that
Experian's services are based on a number of complex applications that are
pulling information from multiple internal and external systems to provide
users with the intelligence they need. This model has been hugely beneficial
in helping Experian to maintain its competitive edge through delivering new
services to its customers quickly.

"For organisations like Experian, reducing time-to-market while improving the
user experience of online applications is a key objective," said David Cooper,
U.K. Regional Director for Compuware's APM business unit. "In order to
maintain a competitive edge, companies now require more information about
exactly where performance issues are occurring during the testing and
development stage—not just after the service has been deployed. With
dynaTrace's end-to-end approach, Experian gets actionable insight into where
its applications can be improved, ensuring their customers receive the best
user experience possible."
