    Subject:  General Availability Announcement for CA IDMS™ Server Version 17.1

    Broadcom is pleased to present you with the Generally Available (GA) Continuous Delivery (CD) release of CA IDMS Server. We will enhance this version using the CD model, which provides new features and product fixes to you faster with easier deployment.

    In the CD release model:

    ●      Enhancements are delivered in the maintenance service stream as feature PTFs. New product features and fixes are no longer bundled together.  For CA IDMS Server 17.1, enhancements and fixes will be available as new product installations downloaded from Broadcom support.

    ●      Enhancements are delivered disabled where possible to give you more control over when and how the features are implemented. With new features disabled, you control when to make the new features available for use in your environment. An explicit action is required to enable the feature.

    ●      Product validation programs are available so that you can influence feature design and test new features and capabilities before they are made generally available (GA). For more information about these programs, go to or contact

    For more information about Continuous Delivery, see the Mainframe Common Maintenance Procedures documentation here. For more information, please reach out to Broadcom CA IDMS Server Product Manager, Sheila Miller at or 781-313-8256.
