Incremental Release Program
The CA Technologies Incremental Release program is a delivery model where new product features are
developed and released using the Agile development methodology. This enables us to deliver
enhancements more quickly to customers so they can begin to derive value from these enhancements. An
incremental release may include several enhancements as well as defect corrections. Please note that
although there may be multiple incremental releases prior to the final release, the product release number
will not change. Customers can enroll in the Incremental Release program at any time during the release
