Compuware Announces Alliance With Splunk to Expand the Power of Operational
Intelligence

Compuware APM Integrates with Splunk^® Enterprise to Deliver Deep Application
               Insight into Business Transactions in Real-Time

DETROIT, Sept. 18, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Compuware Corporation
(Nasdaq:CPWR), the technology performance company delivering a new generation
of application performance management (APM), today announced an alliance with
Splunk Inc. (Nasdaq:SPLK), with the release of an integrated solution. Through
a real-time feed of application data, Compuware APM for Splunk^® Enterprise
provides organizations with deep insight into business transaction details on
how applications are performing.

This new Splunk app leverages Compuware's unique brand of APM for visibility
inside of applications and across every user interaction, tracing 100 percent
of transactions in production environments with near zero overhead. In
addition to performance monitoring and root cause analysis, both business
transactions and user behavior can now be analyzed and correlated in real-time
against any other machine data or structured business data source indexed by
Splunk Enterprise.

"We're excited to be working with Compuware to deliver comprehensive insights
into business applications and their usage to our joint customers," said Bill
Gaylord, Senior Vice President of Business Development at Splunk. "With deep
insights into every business transaction indexed in Splunk Enterprise, our
customers can not only correlate application behavior with machine data from
their entire technology stack but also can build dashboards that visualize
rich end-user and business data correlated to their IT data."

Without any changes to their underlying applications, early users have
successfully implemented Compuware APM for Splunk Enterprise for:

  *Security: Protecting valuable web applications from content scraping by
    identifying malicious behavior as it impacts system performance.
  *Predictive Fraud Analysis: Identifying specific patterns of user behavior
    and predicting when an authorized account may have been compromised or
    accessing data in a suspicious manner.
  *Application Performance Triage: Compuware APM's smart baselines, which
    auto-detect issues within an application, are quickly analyzed by Splunk
    along with IT infrastructure to identify root causes of slow applications
    and poor user experiences.

"Splunk is a proven brand for analyzing machine data, which is growing in
popularity as IT and applications become more complex," said Todd Kaloudis,
Vice President of Worldwide Partner Sales for Compuware's APM business unit.
"We are pleased to introduce the market to a new level of operational
intelligence with Splunk that's so easy to implement."

Compuware APM for Splunk Enterprise is now available on Splunk Apps, here.

Compuware will showcase and demonstrate Compuware APM for Splunk Enterprise at
the 4th Annual Splunk Worldwide Users' Conference, .conf2013, September
30-October 3 at booth #H-4.
