Compuware Corporation recently announced a strategic partnership with Rosetta, which is an independent brand within the Publicis Groupe of global agencies and a member of the Compuware Partner Network.

Rosetta will now incorporate Compuware Application Performance Management (APM) solutions into its product offering will complement Rosetta’s existing technology in e-commerce, mobile platforms and systems integration.
In addition, the APM solutions from Compuware will enable Rosetta’s customers to benefit from deploying Rosetta enterprise e-commerce applications that are easily available and quite efficient.
The APM solutions from Compuware will also enable the monitoring, analysis, reporting and alerting services to integrate with and complement Rosetta's enterprise class e-commerce applications.
Meanwhile, in 2009, Compuware launched – Compuware 2.0 initiative with the aim of generating steady top-line and bottom-line growth. The company targets categories such as APM and secure collaboration.
Consistent with this strategy, Compuware divested its Quality and Testing business and acquired Gomez, which offers web application performance management services through Software as a Service (SaaS) platform. Gomez SaaS also complemented the existing on-premises Vantage APM solutions from Compuware.

In fiscal 2012, Compuware will continue to advance, integrate and support all its APM solutions under the unified brand name of Gomez.
