Case Study Presentation Reveals How Changepoint Customer Keste Tripled
Revenues Through Professional Services Automation

DETROIT, March 14, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Compuware Corporation
(Nasdaq:CPWR), the technology performance company, is pleased to announce its
gold sponsorship of Proformatech 2013, a one-day conference taking place on
March 20 in San Francisco. Proformatech 2013 is aimed at helping corporate
finance professionals discover and explore the latest trends in technology
impacting financial results.

CFOs are increasingly involved in decision-making about technology purchases
-- particularly those that optimize finance, accounting and treasury
processes. Financial leaders are also seeking to redefine their relationships
with IT colleagues to leverage technology and meet today's business
challenges.

"We are thrilled to have Compuware as a Gold Sponsor for our inaugural
ProformaTECH '13 conference," said Proformative CEO John Kogan. "Technologies,
including the Professional Service Automation (PSA) software Compuware
provides, will continue to transform business by enabling enterprises to drive
productivity, efficiencies and top line growth. I'm confident that the
financial executives attending ProformaTECH will be excited to learn more
about innovative companies like Compuware that are driving those changes."

Compuware Changepoint customer, Ken Judd, CFO of Keste, a software solutions
and development company, will deliver a case study presentation during the
event starting at 1:20 pm, titled, "Why CFOs are key to driving technology
purchases." In his presentation, Judd will reveal how Keste tripled its
revenues with the implementation of professional services automation software
and positioned the company firmly for future growth. Attendees at the session
will learn:

  *Why CFOs are now at the epicenter of decision-making when it comes to
    purchasing software critical to driving revenue.
    
  *Why shorter order to cash cycles, tight financial management of projects
    and portfolios, and real-time financial visibility are critical to
    business health.
    
  *Why a move away from spreadsheet-based management to professional services
    automation can result in dramatic revenue growth.

Ken Judd is responsible for all financial aspects of Keste's business, helping
to spearhead a tripling of revenue growth and personnel since joining the
company in 2008.Prior to joining Keste, Mr. Judd served in senior financial
positions for several successful technology companies, including FileTek and
SkyBitz. Additionally, while working in the financial industry, he completed
financing for the acquisition of more than $200 million of portfolio assets.
