Dear Community Member,

With so much going on in the CA Project and Portfolio Management Community I have consolidated recent activities in case you missed anything.

 

Your CA PPM Feedback for 2016 is crucial! 

No one is more important to us than you -- our customers. That is why we need your annual feedback on the CA PPM solution.

We recently launched the 2016 Customer Feedback Survey for the CA PPM product. This one-to-three minute survey enables us to gauge your satisfaction with the product and our support of it. Thanks to those of you who have already filled out the survey this year, but we need to hear from more of you! You may also remember filling out this survey last year. Our CEO, Mike Gregoire, has made NPS scores a key metric by which we measure our progress toward improving your experience with us. Thus, we re-conduct the survey every year in order to see what progress we have made.

The CA PPM product team -- including Product Management, Product Marketing, and Support -- reads each and every survey submission to help make our solutions and support better. We may even reach out to you to get deeper understanding of your comments.  

Please take a few minutes to help us measure where we are by clicking on the Survey icon below. The survey is open through January 13, 2017. Make sure to click the "Finish" button at the bottom of the last page of the survey to submit your responses. Thanks!

For example, can you effectively analyze your current demand intake and truly understand what the organization absorb? How do you allocate resources to drive the right business priorities? Do you have the ability to manage your current portfolio due to resource constraints? Can you look at the new opportunities and balance them against the current portfolio?

Join us on January 19th to learn how to manage the never ending flow of request and effectively allocate your resources to align with the priorities of the business.
