[Micro Focus] Announcing beta for SBM 11.2 (Babylon)

Hello, Everyone!

We're happy to announce that we're nearing our beta release date for SBM 11.2 (Babylon).

Please register for the Micro Focus SBM 11.2 Beta Kickoff on Oct 11, 2016 7:00 AM PDT at:
Or you can register for the Micro Focus SBM 11.2 Beta Kickoff on Oct 11, 2016 4:00 PM PDT at:
After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the webinar.

This will be the initial beta program meeting where we'll give you additional information about the beta and the upcoming SBM 11.2 release. SBM 11.2 is a minor content release, and some of the features we're planning to release are:

File/URL fields: Fields that can store one or more files, or one or more URLs. These fields can also be checked via workflow and used as required fields to ensure documentation or other supporting information is present prior to transitioning an item.

Granular dashboard configuration: This will give administrators much more control about which reports and views appear on a given group's dashboard, which group's dashboard a user should see by default, and even the ability to assign individual reports and views to a team's or user's dashboard regardless of group.

Platform Support for Windows Server 2016: Microsoft has announced a target of mid-October for general availability of Windows Server 2016. We're hoping to pick up support for this operating system during the beta cycle so that we can provide support for it once SBM 11.2 reaches GA

Service Level Agreements: SBM 11.2 is expected to include the SLA engine previously offered only with Serena Service Manager. This will enable OLA tracking on projects created within SBM without requiring SSM to be present.

Group Sync from LDAP: Based on community feedback, we expect to provide much that was asked for in the Support for LDAP Groups and Synchronization idea.

So please join us if you can for this next evolution in SBM!
