Compuware Expedites Applications Analysis with XPEDITER/DevEnterprise 4

6/17/2003 - Compuware Corporation (NASDAQ: CPWR) announced the general availability of XPEDITER/DevEnterprise 4.0. XPEDITER/DevEnterprise enables real application understanding and is designed for developers so they can deliver timely, scalable and reliable applications.

“Experienced developers are getting harder to find in general, but a more difficult problem is finding developers with specific application knowledge,” said Dick Heiman, Research Director, IDC. “Tools that can help developers to quickly understand and extend applications will prove very useful in addressing this issue.”

XPEDITER/DevEnterprise analyzes and understands critical components in applications to fulfill new business requirements by assisting in the identification of business logic to simplify its re-use in other applications. XPEDITER/DevEnterprise can also provide insight into how an application change could impact multiple applications minimizing the risk of placing new applications into production. Through these capabilities, XPEDITER/DevEnterprise helps organizations become more efficient by rendering application knowledge irrelevant.

New in XPEDITER/DevEnterprise 4.0 is a Metadata Analyzer that responds to the business need for identifying the impact of changes across applications. Besides multiple-user cross-application analysis, this new release enhances support for PL/I and Assembler programs, in addition to the existing COBOL support.

“We have seen an outstanding response from our customers based on the idea of automatically analyzing applications. This functionality provides quick access to constantly refreshed information,” said Mark Schettenhelm, Product Manager, Compuware Corporation. “XPEDITER/DevEnterprise will result in enormous benefits for organizations looking to manage their IT environment proactively, instead of reactively, by providing total impact analysis.”

XPEDITER/DevEnterprise also offers a competitive advantage by integrating with a unique and comprehensive analysis/testing/QA solution offered by Compuware, taking users through the entire development cycle.

“If you’re not using XPEDITER/DevEnterprise to perform interactive analysis, debugging and testing on your mainframe applications, then you’re missing out on great opportunities to improve IT staff productivity and application quality,” said Dan Heasley, Senior Project Manager, Huntington National Bank.

XPEDITER/DevEnterprise 4.0 is available immediately.
