Compuware makes Optimal delivery

Keeping IT projects on track

5 things you didn’t know about cloud backup

As businesses get bigger, the problems surrounding applications delivery get more complex, while the tools designed to service them aim to become more comprehensive and integrated.

That is what has happened with Compuware's Optimal suite of tools, the latest release of which is now geared around a new delivery management platform called Optimal Delivery Manager.

The key feature of this is the aim to provide managers across all aspects of the applications development and delivery process with more immediate and accessible information about delivery project status via a complete set of management dashboards.

The idea is that managers, from the CIO down to individual team leaders, will be able to monitor and judge their own project activities directly against business requirements, using metrics relevant to them. This objective is to allow them to keep projects aligned with a company's business goals.

The goal-oriented dashboards can display metrics from Optimal's project management, business requirements management, quality assurance, and performance assurance tools. It also includes the sensible extension of adding the ability to monitor and manage third party toolsets, so managers can get the fullest picture of applications delivery projects possible.

Compuware is also offering a comprehensive assessment service to analyse an organisation's current delivery capability, together with delivery improvement services that can help users diagnose problem areas. ®
