What you may have missed (January 4 - January 31)

By Anon Anon posted 02-09-2016 05:32 PM


Hello IM Community, I really did not forget about you all.  I was out of the office unexpectedly for a few weeks and now playing catch up on this blog series.  My colleague Melanie_Giuliani has been holding down the fort and well she had her own work + mine so this blog series just had to wait a bit.   So here goes it... lots of content for you to browse thru, a ton of new ideas that want your vote and some great events are planned.  Be sure to let us know if you will attend by clicking into the event and acknowledge your desire to attend.


A few more things i want you to know:

- Product Surveys close this Friday, February 12

--> Take the CA Spectrum Product Survey

--> Take the CA Application Delivery Analysis Survey

--> Take the CA Network Flow Analysis Survey

--> Take the CA Unified Communication Monitor Survey

--> Take the CA Unified Infrastructure Management Survey

--> Take the CA Performance Management Survey


- We are trying something new with our events  (Webcast + Office Hours)
You will notice office hours are happening shortly after (generally 2 days after) a product webcast event.  Our thinking is you may have some questions after you had a chance to digest the information we just provided.  Tell us what you think!


- Ideas and Product Category
Holy smokes! the volume of ideas is higher than ever.  However, so many of them are coming in with no product category. So here is where i beg for help.  Please, pretty please with sugar on top, be sure to include / identify the PRODUCT CATEGORY associated to that idea.  This is very important!  We can't guarantee product teams will see your idea if it is not properly categorized to a product.
