Chris O’Malley is CEO of Compuware. With nearly 30 years of IT experience, Chris is deeply committed to leading Compuware’s transformation into the “mainframe software partner for the next 50 years.” Chris’s past positions include CEO of VelociData, CEO of Nimsoft, EVP of CA’s Cloud Products & Solutions and EVP/GM of CA’s Mainframe business unit, where he led the successful transformation of that division.
"The mainframe isn’t going anywhere. The applications running on it are simply too indispensable in terms of coded business logic, long-term investment, reliability, security, scalability and compliance. So the proper time horizon for CIOs when it comes to the mainframe isn’t just the next few years—or just the next few quarters—as it is for many technologies-of-the-month. It’s the next few decades."

Advice to Management
Keep energizing the workforce and acquiring useful software.
I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Compuware in March 2013.
I got a mail from a HR to set up a phone interview with 3 options of dates. I chose one and i got a call.. I applied for the java dev position. She asked me projects from resumes which i told. Then she asked my why dint you have any java projects. i said my acad projs were mostly in c/c++. So it was unintentional . But i know java since i have studying that from my high school days. she was convinced ( atleast i thought so). She asked my salary expectation. i said 70k. she said they dont offer that much for entry level. Then she said she will get back the next day. and i got a mail from her saying "not proceeding with you at this moment."
