Wipro Chooses Compuware dynaTrace^® to Build Performance Engineering Practice

DETROIT, Dec. 11, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Compuware Corporation
(Nasdaq:CPWR), the technology performance company, today announced that Wipro
Technologies, the Global Information Technology, Consulting and Outsourcing
business of Wipro Ltd. (NYSE:WIT), has chosen Compuware to be the preferred
solution provider of application performance management (APM) for Wipro's
performance engineering practice, which is a part of Performance Testing.
Software performance engineering--which is a key part of the software
development life cycle--is used to describe the processes, people and
technologies required to effectively test non-functional requirements and
ensure adherence to service levels prior to deployment.

Wipro is investing in the high-growth performance engineering space and has
selected Compuware APM^®--dynaTrace--to couple their performance expertise
with the industry's most comprehensive APM solution. Wipro customers will be
using Compuware dynaTrace^® for application performance in combination with
performance testing across their pre- and post-production environments.

Now more than ever, organizations need performance engineering throughout the
software lifecycle. By leveraging Compuware dynaTrace, Wipro can deliver
projects faster and more reliably to meet customers' time-to-market and
quality demands.

Wipro's performance engineering practice serves many Fortune 500 companies in
the U.S. and has a well-established presence in the European and Asia-Pacific
regions. Wipro's performance engineers will use Compuware dynaTrace to help
customers achieve performance maturity to ensure their applications are
problem-free when they go live.

"Wipro is building a testing architecture with a full suite of offerings,
based on the best solutions in the industry," said Arun Kumar Singh, Vice
President of Testing at Wipro Technologies. "Combining Compuware's
market-leading APM technology with Wipro provides our customers with unmatched
assurance of their application's project delivery and quality."

Application complexity is driving specialized practices like that of Wipro to
ensure performance and stability in critical business initiatives as well as
driving more companies to outsource software development, testing and
performance enhancement projects to companies with deep skills in this area.
With this combined offering, Wipro and Compuware are providing an
all-inclusive software and service solution that can be leveraged across pre-
and post-production environments.

"Getting innovation to the market rapidly with higher quality is crucial with
today's competitive pressures," said Blair Drenner, Vice President of

performance experts from Wipro with Compuware's market-leading APM solutions
provides end clients assurance of success around their critical application
development and performance enhancement projects."
