Compuware and EZLegacy to provide cross-platform automated analysis and metrics

Compuware Corporation, a software company, and EZLegacy, a provider of application understanding and measurement technology, have entered into partnership that provides customers with cross-platform automated analysis and metrics throughout the application lifecycle.

Under the agreement, Compuware will resell EZLegacy's EZSource:Analyze, Report and Dashboard, which fully automates all aspects of analysis and reporting across mainframe and distributed platforms.

The EZSource toolkit complements Compuware's already comprehensive product offerings that together optimize developer productivity, reduce costs and improve software and service quality throughout the application life cycle, said Compuware.

The suite includes EZSource:Analyze - automates source code analysis across platforms, enabling in-house developers as well as outsourced teams to take the guesswork out of determining which code needs to be modified - and how those changes will impact other applications, EZSource:Report - delivers automated, objective, metric-focused reporting and provides valuable insights such as "where used" and "dead code" occurrences, reducing overall application maintenance costs and EZSource:Dashboard - provides IT managers a high level view of a company's application portfolio, including IT asset inventory, utilization, complexity, quality and resource consumption.

"There is a natural synergy between EZSource and Compuware's application management suite," said Eran Tirer, CEO, EZLegacy. "Application analysis and metrics are key to understanding the complexity, quality and cost of maintaining mainframe applications and, through that, reducing the level of technical debt."
