Compuware Tests and Debugs to SD Times Top 100 List for Leadership

6/12/2003 - Compuware Corporation (NASDAQ: CPWR) announced that it has topped the SD Times 100 list as the software development industry leader and innovator of test and debug solutions. Compuware was recognized in the “Test and Debug” category, placing first over nine other vendors who exhibited significant advances in technology over the last year.

“The SD Times 100 looked for companies which set a direction that developers and the industry followed in 2002,” said Alan Zeichick, editor-in-chief of SD Times. “When choosing the SD Times 100, we carefully considered each company’s offerings and reputation, as well as the attention and conversation we’ve heard around the company and its products and technologies, as a sign of leadership within the industry.”

Compuware has taken the lead in the software quality industry with innovative product offerings for developers writing distributed applications using Java and Microsoft .NET development platforms. The Compuware DevPartner product line had two major releases during 2002, providing automated software quality features for .NET and Java development, including automated error detection, performance analysis, code coverage analysis, code review, distributed analysis and more.

Regarding Compuware test and debug solutions, SD Times editors wrote: “The premium tool lineup virtually guarantees a spot in every tester’s toolkit; from the ubiquitous BoundsChecker to the DevPartner family, Compuware is a commanding presence in code testing/debugging.”

“At Compuware we carefully monitor trends in the industry and the needs of developers and testers to build solutions that help enterprises build better products faster,” said Bob Barker, Vice President of Strategic Planning at Compuware Corporation. “We’re honored to be selected by SD Times for their first annual recognition of software vendors as one of the top solutions providers for developers and testers.”

Compuware solutions in testing and debugging applications include DevPartner Studio, DevPartner Java Edition and QACenter. DevPartner Studio was among the first products to provide software quality solutions for developers using Visual Studio .NET, and the first to offer seamless integration with the IDE. Recognizing that developer migration to Visual Studio .NET will be gradual, DevPartner Studio provides the same software quality capabilities for those working entirely in Visual Studio .NET, or for those developing applications using components developed in both Visual Studio .NET and Visual Studio 6.

DevPartner Java Edition enables developers to improve the quality of Java applications through memory analysis, performance analysis and code coverage analysis, allowing application developers to produce high-quality and high-performance J2EE applications. DevPartner Java Edition incorporates a unique browser-based user interface that provides unprecedented power and flexibility in analyzing distributed Java applications, resulting in a high-confidence application deployment.

QACenter provides functional testing and test management along with application load testing for Microsoft, Java and Web applications. QACenter incorporates automated error detection, performance analysis and code coverage analysis that integrates with DevPartner products. These capabilities enable testers to identify and collect data on errors and performance issues and provide developers with the information needed to rapidly diagnose and address these problems.
