Introduction:
Support Dates for CA 2E and Implementer
Question:
Hi, Just doing some software planning and have some questions about out of support dates.
Have looked at the compatibility matrix but that does not list them.
Can you please answer or confirm the following:-
Is there any out of support date announced for CA 2E 8.7 1632.
Is CA 2E 8.7 still the latest version and also what is the latest fix pack CA 2E 8.7 xxxx?
We believe CA 2E change management option (8.6 1066 - Implementer 11.1) goes out of support at the end of Aug 2018. Is that still correct?
We believe CA 2E change management option 8.6 1204 (Implementer 12.1) is the latest version we need to upgrade to. Is that correct?
Also do you have any links on your support site they specifically give details of the out of support dates so that in future I don't need to raise a call?
