General Availability Announcement for CA PPM 15.1

On behalf of CA Technologies, we appreciate your business and the opportunity to provide you with high-quality, innovative software and services.  As part of our ongoing commitment to customer success, we regularly release updated versions of our products. Today, we are pleased to announce that CA PPM 15.1 is now available for On Premise and SaaS customers.

New features for CA PPM 15.1 include:

  • The first generation of our reinvented user experience for adaptive project managers and team members, leveraging insights from our ethnographic research efforts.  This fresh new approach includes easy-to-read project cards, task to-dos, and the industry’s first “living” status report.  
  • Entirely refactored time management module that significantly reduces the time necessary to both fill out and approve time, including our new purpose-built Kanban-style time approval console.
  • Advanced Reporting upgrade to Jaspersoft 6.2.1, which takes advantage of improvements made to the business intelligence platform.
  • Expansion of the portfolio role limit in portfolio planning from 25 to 75 roles.
  • Installation of the Microsoft Project integration at the machine level (instead of the user level) to simplify large-scale deployments.
  • Enhanced bubble chart rendering.
  • Improved resource management filtering on selected out-of-the-box resource portlets.
  • Other administrative improvements, such as e-mail domain restrictions.
