Compuware to Speak on Next Generation Application Performance Management at
IBM Information On Demand 2013

DETROIT, Oct. 29, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Compuware Corporation
(Nasdaq:CPWR), the technology performance company, today announced that
Spencer Hallman, Performance Subject Matter Expert for Compuware, will conduct
a presentation on advanced application performance management (APM) at IBM
Information On Demand 2013 in Las Vegas. This session is a must for
organizations that want to reduce MIPS, decrease problem resolution time and
save costs.

Session Title: The Next Performance Revolution is Here!
               
Date and Time:  Monday, Nov. 4 at 2 p.m. Pacific Time
               
Where:         Mandalay Bay, Las Vegas, Nevada
               
Speaker:       Spencer Hallman, Performance Subject Matter Expert for
                Compuware Mainframe Solutions

Presentation Details

Mobile and Web transactions are significantly impacting mainframe and DB2
workloads, but many traditional APM tools don't provide teams with the
visibility they need to understand how distributed and mainframe applications
interact. Distributed teams can't track performance into the mainframe and
mainframe teams are blind to the impact of distributed code on mainframe
transactions and workload. Session attendees will learn how next generation
APM can uncover new DB2 tuning opportunities to reduce MIPS consumption,
accelerate MTTR and postpone hardware and software upgrades.

provided sales and technical support for Compuware's Application Performance
