    Compuware Research Reveals That Continued Performance Management Issues are
    Slowing Further Cloud Adoption


    LONDON, Sept. 13, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Research released today by Compuware
    Corporation (Nasdaq:CPWR) has revealed that large European organisations lose
    [Eur]608,000 every year due to performance-related problems with cloud-based
    applications, such as e-commerce sites and Internet-based business
    applications. Furthermore, the survey of 300 European IT directors revealed
    that 57 percent of businesses are slowing down or stopping adoption of further
    cloud applications until they can solve these applications performance issues.

    Richard Stone, cloud computing solutions manager at Compuware explained: ´So
    far businesses have largely invested in cloud applications, such as e-commerce
    sites and online collaboration tools without really thinking about the hidden
    business risks that result from poor performance. Although organisations
    understand the flexibility and cost benefits of the cloud model, this research
    indicated that further adoption will be severely hampered unless cloud
    performance management is tackled. The only way that organisations can
    successfully re-connect with customers, increase confidence and increase
    revenue is by updating their approach to application performance management to
    cope with today´s IT environments.´

    The research also found that 72 percent of businesses admitted that their
    ability to guarantee service levels is severely restricted because cloud
    applications, by their very nature are delivered over an open network -- the
    Internet. Historically, organisations have structured their application
    performance management strategies around internal infrastructures where they
    have complete control. However, as the nature of business applications
    continues to undergo extensive changes, moving from inside the borders of the
    business to a ´borderless´ environment outside of their firewall, the approach
    used to manage them must also become borderless.

    The research did indicate that most organisations understood this. 84 percent
    of those questioned stated that they would expect more rigorous SLAs that go
    beyond simple availability metrics if they increase their use of
    business-critical cloud applications. In fact, to increase the level of
    adoption, those surveyed demanded SLAs based on end-user experience. The key
    question is no longer ´Is it available?´ but rather, ´Is it fast enough?´ 67
    percent of IT directors also stated that their IT teams had the skills needed
    to negotiate the more complex SLAs needed for cloud services.

    ´This research shows us that cloud adoption is being hampered by concerns
    around application performance. However, there are signs this can be overcome, ´
    added Stone. ´Firstly, those surveyed know that, in order to get the most from
    cloud applications, an end-user view is needed. They have also indicated that
    their IT teams have the skills needed to negotiate the more end-user oriented
    SLAs needed for cloud services. Security concerns are obviously still important
    but it´s clear that performance is now becoming the ´day in, day out´ business
    inhibitor that has to be solved. The good thing is people are aware of the
    issue and understand that the end-user experience can´t be compromised.´

    The survey consisted of 300 European IT directors in large enterprise
    organisations with over 1,000 employees. It was commissioned by Compuware and
    conducted by independent research company Vanson Bourne.
