“We’re so confident in our differentiated capabilities and ROI that we’re offering $1 million to help our customers prove it,” To participate, customers take part in a straightforward and free cost-savings assessment. Through the assessment, Compuware will identify future savings opportunities as well as the specific operational cost savings that the customer currently enjoys by using Compuware.

“We’re so confident in our differentiated capabilities and ROI that we’re offering $1 million to help our customers prove it,” said Rose Rowe, Vice President, Mainframe Strategy, Compuware. “According to Gartner, our mainframe market leadership is greater than all of our competitors combined. We believe this is because, in the last six months alone, our customers have told us that Compuware has saved them more than $2 billion. We’re launching this program to help our customers save even more money and to continue proving the unmatched value Compuware brings to this marketplace.”

The program is open to all Compuware customers who maintain a Compuware mainframe software maintenance contract during the program. Participating customers will access a secure web portal where they can easily submit brief stories documenting the successes and savings they have realized from Compuware Mainframe Solutions. The most compelling collection of stories will earn the winning organization a $1 million grand prize at the end of the year-long contest.

“This is an opportunity for Compuware Mainframe customers to gain valuable insight into potential areas for further cost savings and efficiencies–at no cost to them–and to have a chance to win a substantial prize,” said Rowe. “Every customer will benefit by simply participating in the program.”

In addition to the grand prize winner, nine runners-up will receive a $100,000 (USD) credit toward purchase of a new Compuware product software license. Each collection of cost-savings stories will be judged by a panel of industry-experts and Compuware executives. This program will run through November 30, 2010.
