Plex2econf Session 3 A

  1. 1. Application Lifecycle Management – MatchPoint and CA Plex 6.1 Session Code 3A Christoph Heinrich CM First AG
  2. 2. Session Abstract <ul><li>MatchPoint SCM is making use of the new CA Plex 6.1 API’s and the ability to call add ins directly from the CA Plex object browser. In this session all the new features in MatchPoint SCM are presented, including checking in and out objects directly from the object browser, showing the update history of single model objects as well as showing change request information directly from the CA Plex model. This tight integration of MatchPoint SCM with the CA Plex model is providing great change management features for any CA Plex environments. With the latest MatchPoint release there is also a browser based acess available, developed with the ADC Austin WebClient. </li></ul>September 23-25, 2009 Copyright © 2009 CA. All rights reserved.
