Micro Focus releases CPWR products technical staff
      #663249 - 03/07/11 09:59 AM

On Friday March 4, 2011, Micro Focus released all of the QA Load, QA Director,
and Testpartner technical staff from it's Troy Michigan location. This included
development, QA, and support personel. These people were the original Compuware
technical staff for those products. Development for those products was based in
Troy. Support will be handled by the Belfast (Borland) office.

Interesting that someone joined the forums simply to post this msg in the 3 'Compuware' tool forums...

Can anyone verify this? Nothing in the news and they have recent job postings for Troy.

I am connected, through LinkedIn, with two Micro Focus (formally Compuware) support engineers and they both are looking for employment. So the above comment appears to be true. This is one more step for Micro Focus away from the former Compuware tools (which we are still using; QADirector, Test Partner and QALoad). don

I have confirmed that around 100 people were let go - none of the original developer/support for these products remain w/the company.

Micro Focus announced back in 2009 that they are trying to get customers to move away from the Compuware tools and onto the analogous Silk (Borland) tools.
