Case Study by Changepoint Customer AES Brazil Focuses on Keys to a Successful
Project and Portfolio Management Implementation

DETROIT, Aug. 27, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Compuware Corporation
(Nasdaq:CPWR), the technology performance company, announced today its
customer AES Brazil will deliver a case study focused on project and portfolio
management (PPM) at this month's PM Tools 2013, an annual gathering of
Brazil's project management community hosted by Project Management Mundo
Magazine. Changepoint is a sponsor and will be exhibiting at the event.

Paulo Carvalho, IT PMO for AES Brazil, and a Changepoint user since 2009, will
offer key advice to project leaders seeking to successfully implement a
project and portfolio management solution within their organization. As IT

from spreadsheets and the manual monitoring methods of the past, they are
turning to modern PPM solutions such as Changepoint for the answer. Based on
his extensive experience, Mr. Carvalho will share the keys to a successful PPM
implementation, which include an emphasis on well-defined processes and an
adoption strategy that focuses on creating value for end users. He will be
joined by Odemir Moreira da Mata, Jr., Changepoint Delivery Manager, who will
provide an overview of Changepoint 2012, with a specific focus on the
solution's resource management capabilities and their alignment to the project
management portfolio.
