Webcast to Provide Real-World Insight Into Best Practices for Understanding and Improving End User Experience of SAP

DETROIT, Feb. 25, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Compuware Corporation (Nasdaq:CPWR), the technology performance company, today announced a live customer webcast featuring BT and Forrester Research, Inc. This webcast will provide real-world insight into best practices for understanding and improving SAP system performance.

Title: "How You Can Improve SAP Performance"
When: Thursday, March 7, 2013
Time: 10 a.m. Eastern time / 3 p.m. GMT
Presenters George Lawrie, Vice President and Principal Analyst, Forrester Research; Daniel Poulter,
Senior Product Marketing Manager, BT
Why: SAP systems are complex due to their size, the integrations with other applications and the
customization needed to meet organizations' specific business and organizational needs.
Therefore, maintaining these systems is time-consuming and costly. In the end,
organizations only benefit from the SAP application if the new business processes are
more efficient and if user adoption is massive.
Poor SAP performance damages not only user adoption but also the business and a
company's overall performance. The key is to manage SAP performance from the end-user
perspective; yet, few understand how to diagnose the causes—many of which occur
outside the SAP application itself—of poor SAP user experience.
Leading-edge companies such as BT have found new, innovative ways to resolve this
issue. Using its BT Connect Applications portfolio, BT has optimized its SAP applications,
improving performance by as much as 43 percent.
What: During this free webcast, attendees will learn:
-- how companies approach SAP modernization efforts while preserving same levels of service;
-- why problems seen as "SAP problems" may not be SAP problems at all;
-- how to detect, capture and quantify poor SAP user experience before end users call the help desk;
-- how application performance management solutions can complement the SAP solution manager with no interference with the SAP system; and
-- what recommendations BT are providing their customers in order to optimize SAP performance.
