"As users grow increasingly mobile and with applications distributed across
the enterprise and cloud, it's becoming more of a challenge to maintain IT
service quality," said Dr. Thomas Mendel Ph.D., Managing Director of Research
in Action. "Most enterprises now face the challenge of managing not only their
legacy systems, but also a mixed bag of web applications and cloud services,
significantly increasing complexity. As a result, IT service managers require
the ability to auto-discover performance issues and gain a detailed level of
visibility into the real end-user experience. This enables them to monitor
performance not only within their own infrastructure, but along the entire
application transaction path, from origin to end-user.

"Compuware today covers all aspects of the deep application transaction
management market extremely well," Mendel continued. "By enabling customers to
choose between SaaS and traditional deployment methods, the outlook for
Compuware is positive."

Research in Action defines the APM market as the monitoring and managing of
the performance and availability of software applications. It values the
market at around $5 billion in software licenses, maintenance and SaaS
revenues, with an annual growth rate of between 10-15 percent. In recent
years, this market has become crowded, and the term APM has been diluted. As a
result, Research in Action has focused on a subset of the APM market,
examining solutions that monitor and manage the flow of the application
transactions from the application origin to the end-user: Deep Application
Transaction Management.

"This accolade shows clear recognition of Compuware's market leadership and
long history of innovation, execution and delivery," said John Van Siclen,
General Manager of Compuware's APM business unit. "Our new generation approach
to APM and deep transaction management is setting a new industry standard and
fundamentally changing the way that performance is managed. Ultimately, this
is great news for Compuware and our customers alike, as we enable them to
maximize the return on their investments in enterprise applications."
