DETROIT — Compuware Corp. (Nasdaq:CPWR) Wednesday announced the launch of a new global Web site performance comparison instant test that allows companies to understand their website performance in comparison to other companies in their industry.
This free instant test also allows companies to run a performance test from locations across North America, Asia/Pacific, Europe and Latin America.

Compuware also announced that it has been named a “Value Leader” for its Application Performance Management offering, Compuware Gomez, by the analysis firm Enterprise Management Associates Inc.
Compuware said the site test will measure a user’s site performance and compare it to other companies in the same industry, on such yardsticks as load time, and how many round trip interactions with Web servers and third parties are required before a page is fully displayed.
“With this new Web site performance comparison instant test, we’re bringing the power of benchmarking to every organization in a free, easy-to-use manner, so they can understand how their site performs compared to other companies in their industry,” said Jonathan Ranger, Gomez Benchmark Practice Director at Compuware. “This comparative measurement approach can help companies make their Web performance a competitive differentiator that drives market share, revenue growth and customer loyalty.”
The Compuware Gomez platform is the industry’s leading system for optimizing the performance of Web, non-Web, mobile, streaming and cloud applications. Driven by end-user experience, Gomez provides a unified view across the entire application delivery chain, from a user’s browser or mobile device, across the Internet or a corporate WAN, in the cloud, to inside the data center, eliminating blind spots from the First Mile to the Last Mile.
As for the EMA report, it’s titled “EMA Radar for Application Performance Management for Cloud Services: Q1 2012″ and evaluated 18 vendors on product strength and cost efficiency.

“Compuware received the highest score for APM functionality,” 90.89 out of 100, said Julie Craig, research director of EMA and author of the report. “No other vendor received a higher score in this category.”
Value leaders are among the APM elite who have achieved the highest product scores, based on the following five APM criteria areas: deployment and administration; cost advantage; architecture and integration; functionality; and vendor strength.
“Compuware has invested heavily in cloud management technology, and the Gomez Application Performance Management solution bundle covers a broad array of on-premises and SaaS-delivered solutions,” Craig said. “Compuware’s Cloud solutions are a result of its acquisition and successful assimilation of two key technology companies, Gomez and dynaTrace. These acquisitions substantially improved Compuware’s Cloud and APM coverage, which now combines metrics from both external and internal monitoring.”
