Dear CA Plex and CA 2E Community, 


Application Development tools change at a fast pace and it is time once again to review where you are on upgrading and make sure you are keeping current.  Maintaining old releases creates additional work for all of us and takes time away from being able to focus on new development. 


In accordance with the communications and discussions at the Worldwide Developer Conference we are moving CA Plex and CA 2E releases to End of Service (EOS). Link:  9th CA 2E/CA Plex Worldwide Developer Conference 


End of Service (EOS) for CA Plex Release 7.1 and 7.2 (English Versions) and CA 2E 8.6 is now scheduled for January 31, 2019.  The good news is there is a bonus month in the process as the original dates at the conference were end of December 2018.  


If you need help doing an upgrade please reach out to myself or our great support team.  We also have skilled Services partners that you can leverage to get the most out of your CA Plex or CA 2E investment. 


The EOS Documents are posted in this forum at:

Dear CA 2E and CA Plex Community,


It has been one full year since I joined this community and took over Product Management leadership for CA Plex and CA 2E.  What a year it has been and wow how the time does fly by.  It has been a great year and things are looking great for continuing improvement in what we all can do with these products. 


One of the Highlights of the year was the 8th Annual Worldwide Developer Conference in Austin.  Not only did I get to meet many of you I got to learn a lot about how you use the products, and most importantly the product you use with these tools for a complete development solution.   The more we understand each others goals and directions the better we can work together and make sure we are all working in the same direction.  


Last month I presented at the Finnish User Group and it was great being able to interact the customers there.  There is only one of me and it is difficult to attend all of the local user groups, that is why I am highly encouraging everyone to attend the Worldwide Developer Conference this September.  Lets all get together in one place to share knowledge and ideas. 


The team working on the 9th Annual Conference has been busy at work putting together a great conference with in depth training that you will be able to take back to your office and start using right away.  


I encourage everyone to check out the link to the conference and be there if you can.

Dear Community,


At the Annual User Conference we spoke a lot about the opportunities to convert CA 2E Models to CA Plex to leverage platforms other than the IBM i. 


The CA Plex team put together a short video to introduce CA Plex to CA 2E Engineers.

Please check out the video and let me know what you think.
