DETROIT, Dec. 18, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Compuware Corporation (Nasdaq:CPWR), the technology performance company delivering a new generation of application performance management (APM), today released a new version of its free mobile application monitoring solution for native mobile applications with advanced performance analytics. The enhanced solution provides complete visibility into the user's experience across iOS and Android application performance, crash and usage analytics. Download the Free Edition here.

During the kick-off to the 2013 holiday season, consumers used smartphones and tablets for record-breaking mobile online sales from Thanksgiving through Cyber Monday. Though consumers now shop and make purchases using mobile devices and apps, too many companies fail to deliver the online experience consumers demand.

Compuware's new Mobile Application Monitoring Free Edition helps organizations protect against missed business results due to application performance issues. For organizations relying on mobile apps as a primary channel for customer engagement, the solution provides easy-to-understand, intuitive and actionable data for delivering consistently higher rated mobile apps.

Compuware APM Mobile Application Monitoring Free Edition now offers:

  • Deep Performance Analysis: Analyze application transactions and provide detailed diagnostics on specific user sessions where performance problems occurred. Drill down on sessions to uncover valuable information to identify performance issues including user's activity leading up to a problem, OS platform and version, device, battery level, memory usage, number of applications running and carrier network name.
     
  • Advanced Interactive Reporting: Extend powerful performance monitoring, crash and error detection, user analytics and custom event features and put them into overdrive with new interactive filtering options for application version and Android or iOS platform version. These new capabilities enable mobile application development teams to:
     
    -- Verify performance improvements or fixes for crashes and errors for specific application versions;
     
    -- See whether particular iOS or Android versions are less stable or not performing;
     
    -- Track how many users are using each version of a mobile application;
     
    -- Provide insight into iOS or Android version usage to help development and test teams focus their efforts and maximize efficiency;
     
    -- Track custom events by collecting technical or business data from a mobile app by application or platform version;
     
  • Enhanced iOS Crash Analysis: Improved crash analysis for iOS quickly and reliably points to offending code.

"Up to 50 percent of users are now coming from mobile devices, with 75 percent of mobile users encountering problems. These holiday shopping results show just how vital mobile has become to a business's success, and the crucial role mobile performance should play for companies looking to industrialize their application monitoring and management strategies," said Steve Tack, Vice President of Product Management for Compuware APM's business unit. "Our market leading mobile monitoring technology helps organizations manage performance, crash and availability, and usage analysis to ensure great experiences and more positive reviews."

Compuware APM also announced today a new version of its Real User Monitoring for Mobile and Web Apps powered by dynaTrace and PurePath TechnologyTM. This new release delivers the industry's first end-to-end solution for hybrid mobile applications, with auto-instrumentation for mobile applications. View the announcement here.

More than 500 businesses, from small enterprises to Fortune 100 companies, currently use Compuware APM's mobile solutions. For organizations that want to create a five-star app experience but are not yet ready for a complete APM solution, Mobile App Monitoring Free Edition provides insight into where problems are in their mobile app so they can maximize the user experience and ratings. Unlike other vendors that offer "free" monitoring solutions for a short time, then ratchet back to a much less useful offering, Compuware offers a UEM solution for native mobile apps that is free indefinitely.
