Solution for French Healthcare Providers

DETROIT, June 27, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Compuware Corporation
(Nasdaq:CPWR), the technology performance company, today announced a
partnership with France-based healthcare system integrator SIHIS to deliver a
specialized and integrated solution for end-to-end management of complex
projects within the private and public healthcare sector.

(PPM) solution with SIHIS's specialized expertise, and provides French
healthcare providers in France with specific tools adapted to meet the
specific project management challenges of the sector and in accordance with
best practice project management methodologies and models set out by French
national authorities. It will allow healthcare institutions to control and

measurement.
