I have done my engineering in Computer Technology and have followed it up with a Master’s in Information Sciences from University of Hawaii, Honolulu!

Why should people be involved in the communities?

According to Forrester, 72% of the customers prefer self-service to resolve their support issues over pick up the phone or sending an email. Customers want it and companies need it! By being involved in communities, we can help CA help our customers help themselves !


Why should customers read Knowledge Articles?

Customers should read Knowledge Articles because help is always a click away.
