DETROIT, Feb. 7, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Compuware Corporation (Nasdaq:CPWR), the technology performance company, today announced the results of its Super Bowl advertisers website analysis.
Super Bowl advertisers spend millions producing commercials to be seen by multi-millions of viewers. Consequently, advertiser website traffic typically spikes in conjunction with this enhanced exposure. As the industry leader in optimizing the performance of web, non-web, mobile, streaming and cloud applications, Compuware monitored advertisers' websites during the Super Bowl to gauge how each performed under increased load.
Additionally, in the spirit of Super-Bowl-caliber competition, Compuware conducted a head-to-head comparison of major brands -- based on long-standing industry rivalries -- that included Coke vs. Pepsi, Audi vs. Mercedes-Benz and Universal Pictures vs. Paramount.
While some advertisers' sites experienced minimum or no impact from the inflated traffic volumes, others suffered increased page load times and reduced availability, with a few sites crashing during the critical peak period. Over all, the brands that provided the best site performance included Go Daddy, Paramount and Lincoln.
