Compuware Changepoint To Appear At CFO Dimensions 2013 in NYC: Compuware Corp. (Nasdaq:CPWR) announced its Gold sponsorship of Proformative’s CFO Dimensions 2013: Strategic Leadership in Finance: The Next Step, a conference for chief financial officers and senior corporate finance executives. Addressing the evolving leadership role of the CFO, the conference — scheduled for Aug. 22 at the New York Marriott Marquis — will feature speakers ranging from top public and private company finance leaders to renowned subject matter experts. Compuware Changepoint customer, Ken Judd, CFO of Keste, a software development company, will deliver a case study presentation during the event starting at 1:30 pm in the Broadhurst Room on Aug. 22. Entitled “Keys to Success of Financial Leadership in Driving Revenue Growth,” Judd’s presentation will detail how Keste more than tripled its revenues with the implementation of professional services automation software and positioned the company firmly for future growth. Attendees at the session will learn why CFOs are now at the epicenter of decision-making when it comes to purchasing software critical to driving revenue; why shorter order-to-cash cycles, tight financial management of projects and portfolios, and real-time financial visibility are critical to business health; and why a move away from spreadsheet-based management to professional services automation can result in dramatic revenue growth. Judd is responsible for all financial aspects of Keste’s business, helping to spearhead a tripling of revenue growth and personnel since joining the company in 2008. Prior to joining Keste, Judd served in senior financial positions for several successful technology companies, including FileTek and SkyBitz. Additionally, while working in the financial industry, he completed financing for the acquisition of more than $200 million of portfolio assets.
