Compuware Partners With Hortonworks to Streamline Big Data Performance

   Hortonworks Data Platform Gains Full Visibility and Instant Insight into
                    Hadoop Performance with Compuware APM

DETROIT, Feb. 26, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Compuware Corporation
(Nasdaq:CPWR), the technology performance company, today announced that
Hortonworks, the leading vendor for complete 100 percent open source Apache
Hadoop distributions, has partnered with Compuware to optimize the performance
of Hadoop applications on the Hortonworks Data Platform (HDP). The integration
of the Compuware application performance management (APM) solution with
Hortonworks Data Platform provides complete visibility and deep dive analysis
into MapReduce.

"Our customers are building and running large Hadoop clusters with a
significant volume of MapReduce jobs. Having deep visibility into jobs and
tasks allows customers to define and measure service-level agreements (SLAs)
and ensure optimum performance," said Mitch Ferguson, vice president of
business development at Hortonworks. "It also provides unparalleled insight
for developers into their code, reducing both time and effort to fix bugs or
triage slow performance. We are pleased to partner with Compuware, who have a
tremendously powerful, comprehensive APM solution that is also easy to use."

Compuware APM provides unprecedented visibility into NoSQL databases and
Hadoop applications across hundreds or even thousands of nodes. With its
patented PurePath Technology^®, Compuware APM with HDP will enable customers

  *analyze job and task performance with deep tracing, allowing one-click
    access to the hotspot and root cause of errors and slow running jobs;
  *gain complete visibility throughout Hadoop and the business applications
    that rely on it;
  *reduce mean-time-to-repair (MTTR) to resolve issues and reduce the level
    of expertise required -- from days to minutes -- especially in large
    environments; and
  *resolve issues proactively across the application lifecycle, from
    development to QA to production.

"We partnered with Hortonworks because they understand the needs of enterprise
customers building out production Hadoop systems," said Blair Drenner, Vice
President of Strategic Business Development. "Big data complexity and scale
elevates the need for a built-in, modern APM solution. With hundreds or even
thousands of nodes and jobs, finding and fixing issues quickly becomes
extremely complex and can delay business insights that impact top line
revenue. By integrating Compuware APM with HDP, the Hadoop community can
unlock valuable insight faster and deliver richer and more targeted
experiences to their end users."

Compuware will showcase Compuware APM for big data applications at the
O'Reilly Strata Conference Feb. 26-28 at booth #209. Stop by to learn more.
