Compuware and Sogeti Improve Application Reliability Solution

9/7/2004 - Compuware Corporation (NASDAQ: CPWR) and Sogeti, a premier provider of IT consulting services, announced a partnership based on the integrated quality management solution comprised of TMap® (Test Management Approach) and the Compuware Application Reliability Solution (CARS). TMap® is a worldwide industry-recognized testing methodology that forms the foundation of Sogeti’s Software Control Testing (SCT) practice. This combined solution, “CARS for TMap®,” will automate TMap® process management and reporting, making the software testing process faster, while increasing the level of management control to deliver high quality applications.

“Our clients are looking to solve two specific problems--structure and automation,” said Dan Hannigan, Vice President Sogeti USA’s Software Control Testing Practice. “Partnering with Compuware on CARS will enable us to expand our portfolio of SCT solutions. By integrating test automation capabilities into TMap®, we can provide our customers with a complete application quality solution.”

“Customers demand complete and reliable applications,” said Jamie McGuffie, Senior Vice President, Partner Business Development, Compuware Corporation. “Sogeti is an excellent partner for us, as their experience in the area of testing and quality assurance is well matched with ours. CARS combined with TMap® will offer customers a structured and automated testing solution for IT applications that combines the globally recognized methodology and delivery expertise of Sogeti, along with Compuware’s testing solutions.”

Currently, Compuware and Sogeti Netherlands are finalizing a project in Amsterdam to develop “CARS for TMap®,” a TMap® workflow model that wraps the complete TMap® life cycle program around the CARS solution.

CARS is a comprehensive quality management solution that combines quality assurance tools with a proven methodology and testing expertise to help organizations improve control over application delivery. Certified professionals, whose expertise is quality assurance and management of business risk, deliver the CARS solution to customers to help improve the quality of new applications and reduce the risk of IT failure.
