Hey Plex folks,
The CA Plex r7.2 Agile collaboration registration is now open. (I am doing a little celebratory dance at my desk).
Hat-tip to Deanna Tilton (Engineering Project Manager - Customer Validation Management) for setting up the registration site.
NOTE: Features and dates are subject to change and withdrawal.
We plan to start work on CA Plex r7.2 in the next couple of weeks.
Any Plex customer on active maintenance can register to take part in the agile collaboration program, register here:
"But Simon, what IS an agile collaboration program?", you may ask.
The CA Plex r7.2 pre-release agile collaboration program is an invaluable mechanism for CA Plex Product Management, scrum team and customers to ensure we are building the right thing and building it right.
NOTE: We do not plan to have a Beta for CA Plex r7.2…so THIS is the opportunity to validate and collaborate.
Every 2-4 weeks (TBA) the CA Plex r7.2 Scrum Team will provide registered and accepted customers with a demo/review of CA Plex r7.2 stories completed in the latest sprint.
These features will be, quite literally, hot-off-the-press. You’ll be the first audience to see the new set of functionality.
You’ll have a chance to collaborate with the folks who designed/implemented/tested/documented the stories.
We’ll actually make the code available for download, for your hands-on validation of the new functionality. NOTE: Code is not supported for production use.
You’ll have opportunities to discuss what you like, what you don’t like and what you want to see next. Should we stop, abandon, pivot, continue?
You can literally play a role in influencnig and shaping the r7.2 release of Plex.

For people to begin to think about particapting I guess they would like to know what they would be particapating in?
Can you please elaborate on:
Frankly, the elaboration and the way this functionality will grow and will be shaped by the collaboration between Plex scrum team and the customers who join the program. :-)
For now though, let me try to give you a current answer to your questions...
Features and dates are subject to change and/or withdrawal.
We've already got 10 companies signed up for the Plex r7.2 agile collaboration program (see further up the thread for details of how to join).
Sprint 1 starts next week on Monday July 14th.
P.s. As part of our continuing maturity on our agile journey, we are now doing 2-week sprints...so you should hopefully see the first slice of value on July 25th!
