Compuware’s New Zealand operations are unaffected by the closure of its Sydney software development centre.
The management software vendor announced yesterday that 26 staff are to be made redundant following the closure of the centre, with a further seven development staff to be redeployed to its Sydney headquarters.
The development facility specialised in Compuware’s Vantage product, which determines the cause of poorly-performing applications.
Vantage was originally developed at the Sydney centre and the latest iteration, version 10, was released in April.
Compuware is rationalising its development facilities to its US headquarters in Detroit and also plans to close other development centres in Ireland and Massachusetts.
The company will retain a sales presence Australia, Ireland and Massachusetts.
Its presence in New Zealand, which consists of a Wellington office that was opened last year, is not affected by the closure of the Sydney centre, a company spokesman says.
Compuware customers in New Zealand include the Bank of New Zealand and NZ Post.
