Compuware Previews DevPartner Technology at STARWEST Conference

11/19/2004 - Compuware Corporation (NASDAQ: CPWR) announced at the STARWEST 2004 Conference (booth #1), the technology preview and demonstration of two new DevPartner products that will launch early next year. These new products, Compuware DevPartner Fault SimulatorTM and Compuware DevPartner SecurityCheckerTM, significantly extend the ability to detect and diagnose software quality errors in Microsoft-technology applications during the development process.

DevPartner Fault Simulator provides a unique way for development and testing teams to ensure high quality and reliability in application error-handling code, which is notoriously difficult to test during the application development life cycle. DevPartner Fault Simulator utilizes fault simulation to emulate real world application and environment errors.

Application life cycle professionals will now have access to a predictable, repeatable environment to proactively analyze and debug their application's reaction to errors. DevPartner SecurityChecker provides comprehensive application security vulnerability analysis that enable developers to quickly locate and fix security vulnerabilities in Microsoft ASP.NET applications. DevPartner SecurityChecker assists enterprises in developing, testing and deploying applications that are better able to withstand malicious attacks and data theft. Users quickly identify security vulnerabilities right to the line of source code and receive immediate expert advice on implementing a repair, reducing the overall mean time to resolution.

"The DevPartner product line has a long history of providing developers with analyses and expert advice needed to help build the most reliable, highest performing applications quickly," said Ken Cowan, Product Manager for the Compuware DevPartner product family. "DevPartner Fault Simulator and DevPartner SecurityChecker enhance that focus by significantly broadening the scope of risk analysis and identifying defects and other issues well beyond other traditional automated software quality tools."

DevPartner Fault Simulator and DevPartner SecurityChecker are currently both in beta testing. Information concerning the general availability and pricing of these products will be announced at a later date. Product demonstrations of both products will be given during the STARWEST Conference at booth #1.

These new offerings will join the award-winning Compuware DevPartner Studio, an essential product for application development teams seeking to accelerate the construction of reliable, high-performance applications using Microsoft technologies. DevPartner Studio provides information and analysis that enable developers to quickly identify, diagnose and fix errors and performance bottlenecks early in the application life cycle, saving time and money and enabling projects to meet demanding schedules with limited resources. DevPartner Fault Simulator and SecurityChecker will extend the DevPartner family to enable development teams to achieve still greater benefits in quality and productivity.
