Subject: Stabilization Announcement for CA Balancing

On behalf of the CA team, we appreciate your business and the opportunity to deliver high-quality, innovative software and services. As a part of our regular product planning cycle, we have reviewed the position of CA Balancing in the marketplace, from both a sales and technology perspective. We have discovered that the value of the business tools, to our existing and prospective customers, for the products in the CA Balancing product family, has declined significantly over the past few years. Therefore, we have decided to stabilize the products in the CA Balancing product family:

CA Balancing
CA Balancing for CICS
CA Balancing for Native TSO
CA Balancing for VTAM
CA Balancing for ISPF

Functionally stabilizing a product means that there will be no new releases or further enhancements to this product. There will be no additional features or functionality introduced into the CA Balancing products beyond those already available at the current release boundary.

Product maintenance and support for the most recent GA release of the CA Balancing products will continue in accordance with your active maintenance contract. All releases prior to the current GA release of CA Balancing will only be supported through October 15, 2008.
