Compuware Expands New Generation APM Leadership With Industry First Deep
Transaction PHP Support

   PurePath Technology^® For PHP Provides 100 Percent Visibility With Deep
             Code-Level Insight for Automated Problem Resolution

DETROIT, March 4, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Compuware Corporation
(Nasdaq:CPWR), the technology performance company, today announced the
industry's first PHP deep transaction management solution. With Deep
Transaction Management for PHP, Compuware APM now provides the industry's only
solution that fully combines user experience management (UEM), web-server
visibility, deep-dive into PHP, database access and external calls. For the 39
percent of websites using PHP, the solution cuts through complexity and
provides full application visibility from a browser-click to the database and
back, for all transactions, in real-time 24x7.

Compuware APM provides out-of-the-box advanced support for popular PHP
frameworks including Zend^® and visibility into MySQL databases. It provides
the broadest coverage to include other backend systems such as Java, .NET,
C/C++, big data, MQ, Message Broker and the mainframe. Out-of-the-box
dashboards instantly tell users if something is amiss. Advanced automation
with one-click to root cause provides rapid time-to-value. All the application
lifecycle stakeholders --business, operations, QA and development -- can
ensure that their business-critical, revenue-generating applications are
responsive and provide a superior end-user experience.

"Our PHP application was developed by a third-party and we had no visibility
into its performance and behavior," said Samuel Calan, Director of Web/CRM at
Nobel Biocare Management AG. "As an early adopter of Compuware APM for PHP, we
were amazed by the instant, complete visibility we got into our entire PHP
application, from end-to-end. What makes Compuware APM truly powerful and
unique is the combination of APM for PHP and user experience management in a
single solution, which is both broad and deep. Compuware APM will provide us
terrific value for our business-critical PHP applications."

With its patented PurePath Technology^®, Compuware APM provides unprecedented
visibility into PHP applications in several unique ways:

  *Deep Transaction Management from the Edge of the Internet into PHP Servers
    and Beyond: Automatically discovers, maps and monitors all PHP
    transactions through the distributed tiers with information on response
    times, tier-time breakdown and host health, including CPU times—in
    real-time, 24x7 with no sampling.
  *UEM built-in: Compuware APM's Deep Transaction Management for PHP is the
    only solution that provides deep actionable information by combining
    real-user experience (browsers and mobile) with in-depth visibility on the
    server side. It automatically analyzes all user visits and click paths in
    dynamically generated pages, AJAX/Web 2.0 page actions and even external
    calls to third-party services. Application owners see the impact of user
    experience on conversions and revenue.
  *Automated Infrastructure Impact Analysis: Operators can immediately see
    the impact of the underlying PHP server infrastructure on the application
    and transactions with specialized out-of-the-box dashboards that correlate
    system health -- including threads, requests, transfer rate and CPU usage
    -- to business performance. Highly accurate auto-baselines quickly alert
    operators to performance issues, so they can be remedied before users are
    impacted.
  *Lifecycle by Design: Compuware APM Deep Transaction Management is built on
    a common platform enabling all application stakeholders to collaborate
    more easily and to see the same facts with views tailored to their roles.
    Aided by automated application detection, monitoring and alerts, operators
    can quickly share PHP sessions with deep facts down to every method and
    PHP function call. APM automation, including one-click to root cause,
    provides fast time-to-value.

"Our customers expect APM systems to provide greater business value in
increasingly heterogeneous application environments," said John Van Siclen,
General Manager of Compuware's APM business unit. "With our innovative support
for PHP applications, Compuware APM continues to extend its market leadership
by delivering unparalleled breadth and depth, in one easy-to-use new
generation APM system, to meet the ever-growing business needs of our
customers."
