- Enhanced capacity planning enables businesses and engineering personnel to match business priorities to available team capacity so they can balance work allocation during planning.
- Team planning gives visibility into the prioritized set of features that teams will build. By providing context and empowering teams to plan their work, users create reliable release plans together.
- Release tracking provides visuals in real time for executing the work and release tracking progress.
CA Service Management allows service desk analysts to react and respond to high-priority work more quickly by providing them a way to prioritize work, and the context to make decisions which allows analysts to increase their first-call resolution rates.
