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.

It's great that we have such a vibrant community to get quick answers to questions and gain product knowledge! We have very active members jumping in to help others out all the time. The goal of the community is to respond to every members' question so that no one goes away "empty handed".




Watch the Replay: What’s New in CA PPM 15.2 

The latest version of CA Project & Portfolio Management provides new role-based user experiences and deeper integration into Agile Central. As Millennials switching jobs at a high rate, CA PPM 15.2 helps businesses match evolving skill sets with the right projects tools. Staffing issues can be solved in real time with new collaboration tools. A new feature called Telescoping lets resource managers take care of both long and short term needs from a single screen. And the CA PPM time-management now is available for developers working inside Agile Central.


Come see Doug Page, product expert at CA Technologies, demo the new CA PPM 15.2. Follow us: @CAPPM
