Compuware Named Winner at Networking Industry Awards 2002

7/3/2002 - Compuware Corporation (Nasdaq:CPWR) announced today that Predictor, a WAN provisioning and capacity planning tool and key component of the Vantage performance management suite, was named ‘Best Network Application and Operating Software Product’ at the Networking Industry Awards 2002. The annual awards, organized by CMP Europe in association with Network News, recognize the success of those companies leading the way in the voice and data networking market.

In addition to the Predictor award, Compuware’s Application Vantage and Application Expert were named as finalists. Application Vantage enables IT professionals to troubleshoot the performance of production applications while Application Expert analyzes application transactions. Both are components of the Vantage suite.

With over 300 products submitted for individual and team entries this year, the awards are the most respected and sought after in the European networking industry. Nominations are based on product strengths and customer testimonials. The panel of judges included a number of the UK’s leading journalists, analysts and IT decision-makers. Compuware was up against strong competition from many leading vendors.

Steve Jobson, Managing Director, Compuware UK said, “We’re delighted that the judges recognized that monitoring, predicting and managing WAN traffic is critical in order to maintain a successful IT infrastructure. Bandwidth costs are a major expense for the majority of global organizations and Predictor can significantly reduce this overhead.”

Predictor delivers valuable network information to help IT professionals justify WAN and device upgrade expenditures, and design network layouts for enhanced performance, before response time delays occur. Additionally, Predictor enables users to examine the impact of an application’s traffic on the performance of their network. By determining where problems may occur on their network prior to live deployment of their applications, Predictor can make recommendations as to which resources need to be upgraded. The product also examines the long-term effects of application traffic growth on the network and will tell the user where resources are going to be strained as the application grows, or if the link fails or link components break.
