DETROIT, May 15, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Compuware Corporation (Nasdaq:CPWR),
the technology performance company delivering a new generation of APM,
announced today the convergence of dynaTrace PurePath^® Technology and the
Gomez Performance Network, creating the industry's most powerful User

APMaaS solution that provides a complete UEM offering, including real-user,
synthetic, third-party service monitoring and business impact analysis.
Compuware's APMaaS delivery model, auto-instrumentation and single-click to
root cause diagnostics for both real user and synthetic transactions provides
the deepest and broadest insight into application performance with the fastest

Compuware APMaaS is the only solution that enables organizations to optimize
user experience, manage performance, availability and service levels from a
unified real-user and synthetic perspective, all within a single on-demand
platform for fast and easy deployment.

"EMA's extensive research on User Experience Management shows that in a
growing number of IT environments, UEM needs to address not just application
performance, but capacity planning and business impact, while also shortening
development and testing cycles," said Dennis Drogseth, Vice President at
Enterprise Management Associates. "With APMaaS, Compuware has brought together
web and mobile application performance, business impact, user behavior, and
global ecosystem interdependencies into a unified, on-demand platform. This
sets Compuware apart in a marketplace where fragmentation and clutter are
still the norm."

Compuware APMaaS provides a single platform for managing performance,
availability and service levels across web, mobile and cloud applications and
sets a new bar for modern user experience management that includes:

  *Real User Monitoring: Complete view of application performance and actual
    end user experience for all users, browsers, devices and geographies.
    Understands and quantifies "visits" for expanded use-cases such as help
    desk. Automatically identifies and monitors all landing pages for better
    SEO and measures every transaction, including JavaScript/AJAX page
    actions, mobile tap and swipe, 24/7 in production.
  *Synthetic Monitoring: Provides an "outside-in" perspective of web, mobile
    and cloud application availability and service-levels. Identifies when key
    pages and transactions are slow or unavailable from multiple geographies
    around the world before customers are impacted. With PurePath^®
    Technology, drill inline into transaction anomalies for faster problem
  *Third-Party Services: Measures the performance of all third-party services
    like CDNs, ads, social media and video and enables companies to instantly
    determine if a problem's root cause is internal or due to a specific
    service provider. Capture sessions for off-line analysis with third-party
  *Business Impact: Quantifies the impact of application performance on
    real-user experience, customer satisfaction and business results. Track
    real-time conversions, abandonment and revenue alongside performance.
    Prioritize action based on business 'facts,' not IT guesswork.

"Go Daddy, the Web's top platform for small businesses, uses Compuware APM to
manage the performance and availability of its most important applications,"
said Go Daddy Lead Performance Engineer Marcel Verkerk. "Now with Compuware
APMaaS, we are able to bring next-generation real user monitoring and
synthetic monitoring together into a single platform to quickly understand
what, where and how, users are impacted by performance problems. It allows Go
Daddy to address these issues quicker according to business impact, which
ultimately leads to a better, more responsive experience for our customers
every time they use our applications."

"Today more than ever, IT organizations are squeezed between mounting
complexity, increased user and business demand, and the manpower and funding
to keep up," said John Van Siclen, General Manager of Compuware's APM business
unit. "Now, thanks to the convergence of two of our key industry-leading
technologies—PurePath from dynaTrace and the Gomez Performance Network—into a
single cloud-based environment, customers now have a complete, on-demand
solution for application performance management from the user perspective."
