Project management offices are adopting agile to keep up with today’s frantic market demands. To stay competitive, transformation projects, product launches and company reorganizations must come in on time and under budget. James Chan explains how connecting Agile Central to CA Project & Portfolio Management gives both business analysts a detailed view of all investments and developers a clear understanding of their impact on the bottom line. James will also discuss best practices, customer examples and tips and tricks.

CA Agile Central - Ask a Question, Get an Answer (May 12 - May 19) 

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". To help further responses to all questions I am starting the following campaign.

Shoutout to all the members who helped out with the unanswered questions so far! Thank you for all your help!
