Compuware Corporation recently announced the launch of new website and mobile performance benchmarks for both healthcare and auto/property insurance providers.

Compuware, which provides software products and professional services to many of the largest users of information systems across the world, also launched a new Mobile Site Performance Index for U.S. auto and property insurers.

Management at Compuware stated that healthcare and auto/property insurance providers are increasingly encouraging customers to use their online and mobile channels to grow revenue and manage costs. In such a competitive industry, it becomes imperative for providers to meet their policyholders web and mobile expectations.

Compuware recently acquired privately-held rival dynaTrace software for $256 million. dynaTrace is a leader in application performance management (APM). With its patented PurePath technology, the company offers a continuous APM system on the market, transforming how applications are built, tested and managed.

Boston-based, dynaTrace employs 180 people and generated revenues of $26 million in the last twelve months. The company is expected to add revenues between $35 million and $45 million to the Compuware’s top-line in FY12. In FY13, Compuware expects a contribution of $100 million to the top-line.

Due to purchase accounting, management expects the acquisition will negatively impact the bottom-line by three cents.  The acquisition is expected to be accretive to the bottom-line by four cents in FY13.

Management at Compuware stated that with growing competition, organizations depend a lot on the rapid development and delivery of high performing applications to drive revenues, customer satisfaction and brand.

Management stated that the Compuware and dynaTrace APM solutions will allow IT to meet business demands for performance and agility through unmatched user experience.
