Virtual Conference to Address Java and Cloud Development Challenges; Highlight
Industry Leading Innovations That Harness the Productivity of Compuware Uniface

DETROIT and AMSTERDAM, The Netherlands, April 26, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Compuware Corporation (Nasdaq:CPWR), the technology performance company, today announced that its Uniface Business Unit will detail its vision for enterprise and cloud application development at iCU2011. The virtual event for the Compuware Uniface development community, iCU2011 will address the challenges of traditional Java enterprise application development, the emerging future of cloud-based development and the strategic direction for the Uniface product family. Additionally, Compuware will demonstrate innovations that enable JavaScript developers to harness Uniface's exceptional development productivity.

"It's exciting to hear that Compuware is opening up Uniface to the huge community of JavaScript developers," said Al Hilwa, Program Director for Application Development Software, IDC. "The JavaScript and web communities will be more likely to try Uniface and experience the benefits of efficient development that productive development environments like Uniface have to offer. The iCU2011 virtual conference is a great place to learn how these two technologies intersect."

Developers from around the world will come together virtually to attend iCU2011 on May 10, 2011. Over a 12-hour period, iCU2011 will follow the sun – first in Asia Pacific; then Europe, the Middle East and Africa; and finally to the Americas.
