Compuware Launches Free Native Mobile Application Performance Monitoring
Service

 First and Only Mobile APM Service Combining Crash, Performance and Business
                  Analytics Into a Single Easy-to-Use System

DETROIT, April 2, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Compuware Corporation
(Nasdaq:CPWR), the technology performance company delivering a new generation
of APM, today announced the availability of the free Compuware APM Mobile
Application Monitoring Service, the first and only free solution that combines
crash, performance and business analytics for native mobile applications.
Compuware pioneered mobile APM, first delivering solutions more than three
years ago. This new free offering enables mobile application and operations
teams to accelerate time-to-market for new applications and ensure great
end-user experiences. Register for early access here.

Compuware Mobile Application Monitoring Free Edition is a SaaS solution that
monitors mobile performance from the real user perspective. This gives
organizations the ability to analyze who is using their mobile applications;
see performance by device and browser; know the impact of device
characteristics such as signal strength, battery charge and memory; all with
integrated crash detection and diagnostics. This insight enables IT and
business leaders to proactively address performance issues and maximize
business results, which is of critical importance as mobile engagement
continues its explosive growth.

"Our customers tell us they need better solutions for managing mobile
applications. They started with crash analytics, but as mobile applications
have become mainstream, they now want crash, performance and business
analytics all in one easy-to-use solution," said Steve Tack, Vice President of
Product Management for Compuware's APM business unit. "As mobile applications
become industrialized, operations, development and business teams are looking
for all three dimensions in a single Mobile APM solution."

Mobile Application Monitoring Free Edition features the following
capabilities:

  *Monitoring of Real End-Users' Mobile Application Experiences: Compuware
    APM Mobile Application Monitoring Free Edition is the only solution that
    monitors and tracks application usage, performance, availability, business
    level information, and captures and detects crashes in a single solution.
    With the Free Edition, you can begin monitoring all aspects of an iOS or
    Android mobile application in minutes.
  *Mobile Application Usage Tracking: tracks the numbers of users and their
    application sessions across geographies, devices and networks, giving
    organizations the insight needed to optimize their applications to achieve
    better business results.
  *Availability Measurement and Reporting: delivers insight into whether the
    application is stable and consistently available, able to serve the
    customer when it is needed, every time.
  *Monitoring Mobile Application Performance: Free Edition measures
    performance of a mobile application directly from the mobile device to
    understand the end-user impact of poor performance, with detailed
    performance trending and patterns over time.
  *Isolating Root Causes of Crashes and Errors, Down to the Line of Code:
    capture and analyze any error or crash that end users experience. Drill
    down on crashes to see what happened on a device at the time of a crash
    and identify critical information such as operating system, carrier,
    geographic location, battery level, other running applications, and the
    specific line of code where the problem occurred.

"We have used Compuware's Mobile Application Monitoring solution with great
success since 2012. Before that, we did not have an end-to-end view of
performance from the real user perspective, and resolving issues was
definitely a challenge for us," said Christian Kaar, CTO and co-founder of
runtastic. "Now with the combination of crash, performance and business
analytics, we can solve problems quickly all from one solution." runtastic is
a provider of apps, hardware devices, and online services that measure, track
and analyze health and fitness data. To date, more than 22 million people have
downloaded runtastic's mobile applications.

delivered the industry's first mobile synthetic testing solution. More than
500 businesses, from small enterprises to Fortune 100 companies, currently use
