Value Improvement Program

Drive greater business efficiency and optimize your mainframe assets

Compuware empowers the world’s largest companies to excel in the digital economy by fully leveraging their high-value mainframe intellectual property. We do this by delivering highly innovative mainframe application development and performance optimization solutions that uniquely enable IT to drive business value. But it’s one thing to provide solutions, it’s another thing to help customers evaluate and increase the value they are getting from them.

While every business and IT organization is unique, every company should have accurate business analytics to measure business efficiency and identify potential areas for improvement.

To that end, we have re-architected our Value Improvement Program (VIP) to meet this critical need. The VIP is now an exclusive evidence-based customer program designed to help qualify, quantify and increase the value customers derive from Compuware’s solutions.

The VIP can provide the usage metrics to answer the following critical questions, and more:

  • How can you transition staff with minimal impact to your business?
  • How do you evaluate staff churn at your outsourcer?
  • How efficient is your seasoned staff with years of experience?
  • Is your staff leveraging the tools the company has provided for them to the fullest?
  • Are there any knowledge gaps and what type of training can help to fill that gap?

Introducing the Business Analytics Based VIP

The VIP consists of dashboards that enable you to achieve IT efficiencies and avoid unnecessary expenses and risk, while gaining greater value from your critical applications. The VIP includes intelligent executive and practitioner-level dashboards that offer a comprehensive picture of your organisation’s benchmark with regards to solution usage, solution maturity level, efficiency and ROI. The dashboards also provide a unique view into your market by comparing your business to your industry vertical average. With the insights gained from the VIP dashboards, you will be able to make better business decisions that are based on reliable intelligence. In addition, Compuware provides analytic recommendations for saving time and money.

The VIP can support your business by advancing the following operational objectives:

  1. Increased adoption of deployed software investments
  2. Improved productivity, agility and delivery rates
  3. Accelerated on-boarding of new workers
  4. Better performance from outsourcers
  5. Identified areas for cost reduction

The VIP-process

With the VIP we aim to provide you with the information you need to analyze your current state of business. The process is as follows:

  • Products Usage Statistics Collection: Extraction of product usage statistics that are automatically collected from our products.
  • Analytics: Compuware consultants analyse the usage statistics collected and make recommendations for achieving even greater value from our tools.
  • Visualization: Present findings and recommendations in executive- and practitioner-level dashboards for your review.
  • Develop and Deploy Action Plan: Collaborate with you to develop, deploy and measure the impact of a realistic action plan based on our findings.
