Compuware Makes SD Times 100 List for Second Straight Year

6/10/2004 - Compuware Corporation (NASDAQ: CPWR) announced that it has been named to SD Times Magazine’s annual SD Times 100 list for the second consecutive year. Compuware DevPartner Studio was recognized in the “Test and Performance” category, and Compuware OptimalJ was recognized in the “Modeling & Design” category. The SD Times 100 recognizes the leaders and innovators of the software development industry. Organizations were chosen based on their reputation within the industry and among professional developers.

“Each year, the editors of BZ Media’s SD Times 100 look for companies and influencers who set the technical and market leadership for the software development industry,” said Alan Zeichick, editor-in-chief of SD Times. “When choosing the 2004 SD Times 100, we carefully considered each organization’s offerings and reputation with developers, 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 DevPartner Studio Professional Edition provides an award-winning suite of software development tools that help developers build reliable, high-performance applications and components for Microsoft .NET as well as for native Windows platforms. Building new .NET applications that may integrate with native components and moving existing native applications to .NET are tasks prone to integration and migration problems, coding errors and problems with runtime performance and test coverage. DevPartner Studio helps to locate errors early, to tune runtime performance and to assure thorough testing of applications written in .NET, native code or a combination of the two.

Compuware OptimalJ is a Java development environment that generates working applications directly from visual models, leveraging patterns to implement best practices for coding to J2EE specs. OptimalJ accelerates application delivery by simplifying Java development through the implementation of OMG’s Model-Driven Architecture (MDA), enabling a team of architects, designers and developers to rapidly produce reliable J2EE business applications.

“It’s an honor to once again have the SD Times editors select Compuware to its 2004 SD Times 100 list,” said Bob Barker, Vice President of Strategic Planning at Compuware Corporation. “To be recognized for the second year in a row underscores Compuware’s continuing strength and leadership among developers in the .NET and J2EE development tools markets.”
