The evidence couldn’t be clearer. Compuware is the Da Vinci of the mainframe renaissance—and Detroit is its Florence.
Are you working with the best mainframe partner for the next 50 years or a mainframe software pretender with a penchant for price increases and locking customers into the past?
Compuware has filled the gaping mainframe leadership void by re-inventing the mainframe’s future as a fully integrated participant in the Agile/DevOps enterprise. And we deliver on that promised future every quarter, like an authentic mainframe software partner should.
With today’s release of ISPW Deploy, Compuware is again equipping large enterprises to achieve mainframe agility and release fresh COBOL code with unprecedented speed and frequency.
Compuware’s innovative approach to mainframe visualization is particularly compelling in light of the fact that enterprises must update their core mainframe applications more aggressively than ever.
Compuware today announced ground-breaking integrations with Splunk, Atlassian, SonarSource, AppDynamics, and Jenkins. We also acquired the assets of ISPW, a leading provider of agile source code management and release automation. But what really happened is that Compuware transformed the future of mainframe applications.
On Thursday, we will sit around a table with people whose political opinions we find heartless or naïve, who don’t binge the same shows as we do (or who don’t even have Netflix), and who think Docker is a brand of pants. And we’ll enjoy ourselves—or at least make a [...]
If you’re in IT at a Big Important Company, much of your most important application logic probably resides on an IBM mainframe. And you’re not re-platforming it any time soon.

"Apathy can be overcome by enthusiasm, and enthusiasm can only be aroused by two things: first, an ideal, with takes the imagination by storm, and second, a definite intelligible plan for carrying that ideal into practice." - Arnold Toynbee While social feeds buzz with hype about wearables and WhateverChat, the [...]
Warren Buffett has out-performed the S&P 500 over the last 50 years by an astonishing 782:1. He has done this through disciplined value investment which, as he puts it, is about buying great companies at a reasonable price—rather than chasing uncertain trends or short-term bargains. Buffett’s rationale is fairly simple. [...]
Today, as promised in February, Compuware delivered integrations between Compuware Strobe and two BMC solutions: BMC Cost Analyzer for zEnterprise and BMC MainView. These integrations enable Compuware-BMC customers to reduce their mainframe software licensing costs by 10% or more—even as the demands of the digital economy drive continued growth of their IBM z Systems workloads.

The new version of Topaz adds Program Analysis—rich visualization of COBOL and PL/I application code—to [...]

But the most pressing challenge mainframe owners face at the moment isn’t operations. It’s protecting and extending the incalculably valuable intellectual property residing on their mainframes in the form of [...]
