Compuware Announces Day One Support of the IBM z14

Joint Customers to Realize Several Advantages, Including Enhanced “Digital

DETROIT, July 17, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Compuware Corporation, the world’s
leading mainframe-dedicated software company, is pleased to announce Day One
support of IBM’s new z14 mainframe. The z14’s new features, particularly
greater security enabled through pervasive encryption, will help Compuware
customers optimize “digital trust”—heightening user confidence that their
sensitive data is being kept safe and secure. Additional hardware capacity and
performance optimizations will also help customers more fully leverage their
mainframes as a competitive asset.

“The digital economy has fundamentally re-shaped the competitive landscape.
When it comes to time-to-market for innovative products and services, big
doesn’t beat small; rather, fast beats slow,” says Christopher O’Malley, CEO,
Compuware. “By modernizing their mainframe tools and processes, along with the
platform itself, our customers can be both big and fast. The z14 addresses yet
another value attribute—trust beats doubt—and our shared customers can now
benefit from this truly winning combination.”

While the mainframe has long been known for its superior security, IBM’s new
pervasive encryption will provide extensive encryption of data, both in-flight
and at-rest. This further maximizes protection for the majority of corporate
data worldwide which continues to reside on mainframes. This enhancement
aligns with Compuware’s recent announcement of Application Audit, a product
that provides end-to-end visibility into privileged user behavior in order to
safeguard against insider threats to mainframe applications and data.  

Additionally, Topaz, Compuware’s most innovative suite of solutions, makes it
easier for organizations to understand and work with mainframe applications,
as well as, access mainframe data quickly for various purposes, including Big
Data analytics. These capabilities are critical for speedier and more accurate
program analysis, reducing the risk associated with updating undocumented
applications while enabling strategic business decisions to be made in

Compuware worked in collaboration with IBM to ensure our breadth of solutions
work seamlessly upon customer migration to the new z14 hardware platform.
Compuware products transform the overall value of z Systems by enabling DevOps
teams to efficiently control source code, work on any application even if
poorly documented and eliminate development throughput and operational
performance bottlenecks.
