Webinar to Detail New Research Showing Revenue Impact of Poor Cloud Performance
Despite Enforcing SLAs; Attendees to Learn Best Practices to Successful Cloud Deployments

DETROIT, April 21, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Compuware Corporation (Nasdaq:CPWR), the technology performance company, today announced a live webinar featuring Enterprise Management Associates (EMA) that will highlight new research showing the revenue impact of poor cloud application performance and service level agreements (SLAs). Attendees will learn five best practices for successful cloud deployments and pitfalls to avoid that will dramatically improve the business results that organizations can achieve with cloud computing.

Title: "Five Best Practices for Successful Cloud Deployments – and the Pitfalls to Avoid"
When: Thursday, April 28, 2011
Time: 11 a.m. Eastern time

Dennis Drogseth, Vice President of Research at Enterprise Management Associates and

Richard Stone, Cloud Solutions Manager at Compuware Corporation

Companies that rely on enforcing SLAs from their Cloud Service Providers to manage the

performance of their cloud applications are increasingly discovering that they are failing to

meet their business objectives. The reality is that by the time an SLA has been missed,

your end users and customers have already been severely impacted, resulting in poor

adoption and missed revenue opportunities.
  Successful cloud deployments require real-time visibility of application performance and

service level trends across the entire delivery chain
– from the First Mile (your data center)

to the Last Mile (your users). This insures that companies are able to detect problems

anywhere in the delivery chain, before end users, customers, and your business are impacted.
What: During this free webinar, attendees will learn:
  •  research results showing how and where companies are benefitting most and

conversely where they've had issues or had to rethink and redirect their cloud initiatives; and
  •  best practices to adopt – and pitfalls to avoid – that will enable organizations to get cloud

deployments right the first time from both a process and an APM perspective.
  Attendees will also receive a complimentary summary EMA's report titled: "Operationalizing

Cloud: The Move Towards a Cross-Domain Service Management Strategy."
