CCS teams with Compuware to explore software design
This past fall, the College for Creative Studies (CCS) partnered with Compuware Corporation (Nasdaq: CPWR), the technology performance company, to build on the tech giant’s long history as a customer- innovation- and employee-centered company. The partnership paired CCS students and faculty with Compuware teams to explore software design and evaluate how customers really use it.
“Compuware is committed to innovation to enrich our organization and our solutions. This sort of pairing with a leading creative and design institution demonstrates that we are looking beyond the traditional IS and b-school programs for fresh perspectives and innovative thinking to inject into our solutions,” said Compuware CEO Bob Paul. “This program brings Compuware – and most importantly our customers and employees – significant business benefits while deepening our relationship with this world-renowned creative institution, while introducing us to some great candidates for future employment.”
In addition to gaining hands-on experience in software design and usability, CCS students enjoyed the opportunity to contribute to Compuware’s culture and innovation efforts. As the company enters its 40th year, Compuware has sharpened its focus on enabling employees to drive cultural improvements that better serve customers and help attract and retain the best talent. CCS students participated by collaborating with the company on enhancements in work environment, organizational structure, design and more.
