Compuware APM Drives Cross Lifecycle Collaboration to Bolster Application
Quality and Speed of Innovation to hybris Customers and Partners 

DETROIT, 2014-02-06 15:39 CET (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) --
Compuware Corporation (Nasdaq:CPWR), the technology performance company
delivering a new generation of application performance management (APM), today
announced that hybris software, an SAP company, and the world's fastest-growing
commerce platform provider, and Compuware APM have extended their partnership
to empower collaboration among developers, QA and production teams. This
application performance lifecycle approach helps hybris partners provide higher
quality releases with reduced resources so that customers enjoy high
performance releases in a shorter amount of time. 

The new component of their partnership, a partnership first announced in 2011,
builds on Compuware dynaTrace Production Edition's position as the only APM
solution certified by hybris to deeply monitor the hybris platform. 

hybris, which delivers enterprise software and on-demand solutions for
eCommerce, omni-channel commerce, master data management and order management,
is extending its partnership with Compuware to bring down service and support
costs, improve project roll out time and ensure pristine quality of eCommerce
projects. By sharing best practices built around hybris' recommended APM
technology, developers and QA professionals building applications on the hybris
platform can better understand how their code behaves and interacts with the
hybris framework, the hybris APIs and the hybris classes to solve complex
application problems quickly to ensure optimal performance and bug reduction. 

'Our partnership with Compuware APM greatly supports us in our mission to
deliver successful hybris implementations for our customers,' said Pat Finn,
Vice President of Channels, Americas, at hybris. 'Compuware APM helps its
customers proactively spot and solve application performance issues before
users are impacted, even in the most complex, multi-tier applications. This
insight is vital in enabling them to tune-up their most critical applications
from the user's perspective, increasing loyalty, revenue and brand image.
Married with our industry acclaimed hybris Commerce Suite, this alliance will
provide a winning formula for our customers.' 

hybris partners with Compuware APM to enable its customers to:

  -- assure optimal end-user experiences for online customers and drive greater
     business value by determining the impact of performance on key business
     metrics;
  -- monitor complex production applications, assure SLAs and determine
     root-cause of issues;
  -- monitor modern application environments - cloud, big data, virtualized,
     distributed;
  -- provide business and application insight to all stakeholders via easy to
     use dashboards and reports;
  -- increase availability and accelerate release cycles by assuring production
     readiness and scalability; and
  -- quickly and easily deploy, use and manage a new generation APM system.

'We are excited to further our partnership with hybris. In the eCommerce world,
application quality and performance has a direct and significant impact on the
user experience that drives revenue and repeat customers,' said Blair Drenner,
Vice President of Strategic Business Development for Compuware's APM business
unit. 'eCommerce environments have many moving parts and many stakeholders who
need to work seamlessly to guarantee successful customer experiences. By
leveraging Compuware APM's solutions and best practices throughout their
eCommerce lifecycle, hybris customers will be able to manage that complexity,
reduce total cost of ownership and enhance business and technology
performance.'
