Hello Unified Infrastructure Management Community Members. Not only did we move some products outside the Infrastructure Management community into it's own space, we refreshed the community with a new design. It might sort of feel like a double-whammy but I have faith that all of you will handle the changes like a champ!   It will just take some getting used to. Watch this 2 minute Video to learn more about the design changes. This community is not the first community to get this new design.  A few others have already launched and been running on this design for some time now (the PPM and APM communities to name a few).  

 

The Unified Infrastructure Management community covers two (2) products: 

  1. CA Unified Infrastructure Management
  2. CA Unified Infrastructure Management for z Systems

 

What you will notice right away is that we have more tabs at the top which are called pages.  The addition of more pages will allow us to better organize content in the community and in return you will hopefully find what you need much faster! You will also notice the Activity feed is missing  from the main Overview page - well, it's not really missing, it has just been re-located!

 

 

 

Here is a better explanation of each of the pages and what you can do and find on each of them:

PAGESEXPLANATION OF EACH PAGE IN COMMUNITY
Overview

This is the main landing page and is designed for new visitors.  It is also great for a quick snapshot on things that are 'new' (new ideas, new events, featured videos).  

Need Help?Many people visit the community because product help is needed.  Therefore, this page will provide you with handy links and information to educational materials, KB articles, Tech Tips and answered questions. You will also now have a way to quickly tap into other channels for support such as 'CA Chat'.
UpgradeThis page is a great resource designed to help you stay current on the latest software release, making the very most of your CA investment.  On this page you will find all sorts of collateral that will explain the benefits to upgrade, how to upgrade and even will point you to handy videos. 
ActivityThe Activity feed that used to be on the main overview page is now here, in it's own space.   On the right sidebar you might recognize our CA Champions who are our most active in the community and well ... (hint) we suggest you follow those people. 
Content

No change to this page other than it is now a few tabs to the right of the Overview Page.  You can still organize and search for content by product, content type (blog, document, idea) or by tag.

People

This page represents all the people following this community.

Subspaces and ProjectsThis page will take you to any sub-communities that sit beneath and work hand in hand with the Unified Infrastructure Management community.
Events

The Events page is a dedicated page to showcase all past, current and upcoming events with links so you can get registered super fast!

 

Our power users often choose to skip many of these pages and may still want to use their custom streams which is fine!   Want to learn more about how to set up custom activity streams? Read this: Creating Custom Streams or watch this video: How to Create a Custom Stream 

 

Here's more reading:  News and Streams.  Then, this doc will walk you through the process of adding a tag to a custom stream: Following a Tag.
