DETROIT, Nov. 2, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Compuware Corporation (Nasdaq:CPWR), the technology performance company, today announced that Michael Kopp, a Technology Strategist for Compuware's application performance management (APM) business, will present two sessions at the Cloud Expo West 2012 Conference in Santa Clara, CA on big data and cloud performance.

Session details are as follows:

Session 1: Performance Management in Big Data Applications
Date: Monday, November 5, 2012
Time: 5:10 p.m. Pacific Time
Where: Santa Clara Convention Center, Room B5 – Mission City Ballroom
NoSQL and Hadoop environments are a new challenge for performance engineers. NoSQL solutions require more logic to the application and rely on accurate access patterns to perform. Ensuring MapReduce performance and scalability is a big data problem in itself.
What: During this session, attendees will learn how to tackle both challenges with the help of modern APM.
Session 2: Application Performance in the Clouds - Lessons Learned
Date: Thursday, November 8, 2012
Time: 8:15 a.m. Pacific Time
Where: Santa Clara Convention Center, Ballroom A-H
Organizations face the challenge of monitoring and managing performance in clouds nearly every day. Not only is APM different in a cloud, but all clouds are not equal.
What: During this session, attendees will learn:
• how organizations can use APM in different clouds—Azure, EC2, VMware, private clouds—and how it differs from more traditional environments;
• why performance monitoring, troubleshooting and tuning play such crucial roles in the cloud; and
• why the goals for optimizing performance are no longer the same when talking about public clouds.

Michael Kopp is a technology strategist in the Compuware APM center of excellence and has more than 10 years of experience as an architect and developer in the Java/JEE space. Additionally, Kopp specializes in architecture and performance of large-scale production deployments with a special focus on virtualization and cloud.

Compuware is a platinum sponsor of the Cloud Expo West 2012 Conference and will exhibit there, November 5-8 at booth #515.
