DRC and Compuware to Develop J2EE Applications for Ohio's SACWIS

11/17/2004 - Dynamics Research Corporation (NASDAQ: DRCO) and Compuware (NASDAQ: CPWR) announced an alliance to develop applications for Ohio’s Statewide Automated Child Welfare Information System (SACWIS). Dynamics Research Corporation (DRC) was recently awarded the $30 million contract--more than a third of which was earmarked for Compuware--in a competitive RFP. DRC, the Andover, Mass.-based solutions provider chose Compuware professional services and products, including OptimalJ, Compuware’s model-driven enterprise Java development solution, to simplify and speed the process of architecting and building J2EE applications for all of Ohio’s 88 counties.

"In a highly competitive bidding process such as this, success is incumbent upon expertise, efficiency and the ability to deliver," said Tom Kelly, DRC’s Senior Vice President and General Manager, Systems Engineering & Information Technology Group. "Compuware professional services and development products enable us to rapidly and cost-effectively build J2EE applications."

Federal mandate requires that all states move toward the enactment of a comprehensive automated case management tool, such as SACWIS, to support state child protection workers in the processing of foster care, assistance and adoption services. Ohio’s Department of Job and Family Services (ODJFS) contracted for DRC to build additional state-specific functionality into SACWIS to supplement federal automated case intake, eligibility management, resource management and court processing requirements.

"For development initiatives involving large teams, complex functionality and dependencies, integration with existing infrastructure and cross-departmental communication, Compuware is the clear choice," said Tommi White, Compuware Chief Operating Officer. "Specifically, for DRC and its SACWIS project, Compuware OptimalJ enables developers of varying skill levels to shorten development cycles and helps ensure project success."

Compuware OptimalJ is an advanced model-driven, pattern-based (MDPB) J2EE development environment that reduces the time and complexity associated with architecting, delivering and maintaining J2EE applications. Development teams use Compuware OptimalJ to generate standards-based applications directly from UML models, greatly speeding application development while improving quality and maintainability. It provides development teams with unparalleled control over the code generation process, ensuring that OptimalJ applications adhere to internal and industry-wide guidelines and best practices for application architecture.
