DETROIT, Oct. 29, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Compuware Corporation (Nasdaq:CPWR), the technology performance company, today announced that Spencer Hallman, Performance Subject Matter Expert for Compuware, will conduct a presentation on advanced application performance management (APM) at IBM Information On Demand 2013 in Las Vegas. This session is a must for organizations that want to reduce MIPS, decrease problem resolution time and save costs.

Session Title: The Next Performance Revolution is Here!
Date and Time: Monday, Nov. 4 at 2 p.m. Pacific Time
Where: Mandalay Bay, Las Vegas, Nevada
Speaker: Spencer Hallman, Performance Subject Matter Expert for Compuware Mainframe Solutions

Presentation Details

Mobile and Web transactions are significantly impacting mainframe and DB2 workloads, but many traditional APM tools don't provide teams with the visibility they need to understand how distributed and mainframe applications interact. Distributed teams can't track performance into the mainframe and mainframe teams are blind to the impact of distributed code on mainframe transactions and workload. Session attendees will learn how next generation APM can uncover new DB2 tuning opportunities to reduce MIPS consumption, accelerate MTTR and postpone hardware and software upgrades.
