Compuware Acquisition Wraps Up

Thoma Bravo, LLC has formally completed its acquisition of Compuware Corporation and implemented its previously announced plan to separate the company's mainframe and application performance management (APM) businesses — with the mainframe business carrying the Compuware name.

With this, the company claims, Compuware is now the largest software company in the world exclusively devoted to optimizing customers' IBM mainframe environments.

Former Compuware president of mainframe operations has been named Compuware's CEO.
