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 Project and Portfolio Management 14.2 is now available.

New features in CA PPM 14.2 include:

    • Integration of Jaspersoft Enterprise Server for generating standard reports and easier creation of ad hoc reports
    • Deployment of a reporting data warehouse to improve overall reporting performance and flexibility
    • Key improvements to Portfolio Management, including the removal of the limit on the number of investments in a portfolio
    • Often requested changes to the Microsoft Project integration, including support for auto-numbering and a field mapping utility for custom attributes

As the introduction of Jaspersoft marks an exciting improvement for CA PPM SaaS, we want to insure that you are well informed about this transition from the former SAP Business Objects based reporting platform.  You can find more details on both Jaspersoft and the End of Support for Business Objects in the Jaspersoft FAQ on CA Support Online. We also encourage you to visit the CA PPM product information page on the CA Support Online website at for more information about upgrading and other release features.
