Dear Community Member,


With so much going on in the CA Project and Portfolio Management Community I have consolidated recent activities in case you missed anything.


Ask a Question, Get a Response - Unanswered Question? Offer a Solution (Dec 4 - Dec 11)

It's great that we have such a vibrant community to get quick answers to questions and gain product knowledge! We have very active members jumping in to help others out all the time. The goal of the community is to respond to every members' question so that no one goes away "empty handed". To help further responses to all questions I am starting the following campaign.




CA PPM Product Survey is OPEN!

Everyone - Please take a moment and provide your feedback!You may choose to leave your contact information or remain anonymous. The Product Management leadership team will review the survey results to create action plans designed to further improve the overall experience and value you receive from your investment with CA Technologies.Candid feedback from our customers is one of the most important tools we use to advise product development. In addition to product management, your feedback is immediately accessible by executive management teams who are always looking to improve your customer experience. This survey opportunity will be opened until Mid January. All users are encouraged to participate.
