Every company must become a technology company whether they’re prepared to or not. Compuware, the Technology Performance Company, has spent four decades helping companies face, understand, and tame the problems inherent in an ever-shifting business and technology landscape.

•  Your customers and employees have significantly more power and influence over your technology strategy.

•  IT is no longer a back-end issue—the business expects IT to drive revenue.
