Compuware on Monday unwrapped the Compuware Application Reliability Solution (CARS), quality assurance processes combined with a personnel and products package designed to bolster application delivery.
CARS is built on top of the company's QualityPoint methodology for managing the processes that enable discipline during the application development lifecycle, company officials said. The package also includes Compuware's Application Quality Workbench, which enforces the disciplines put forward by QualityPoint.
The CARS offering will be delivered by Compuware's own professional services arm, as well as certified third-party partners. The services side will walk customers through the entire application delivery cycle, which can be as short as four months but typically spans six months, according to the company. The solution, however, was created to facilitate turning over control to clients.
"This is not piece-parts. Everything is designed to fit together like a glove," said John Williams, CARS launch director at Compuware.
