    General Availability Announcement for CA PPM 15.4

    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 15.4 is now available for On Premise and SaaS customers.

    New features for CA PPM 15.4 include:

    ·       Roadmapping, which is the first step in our strategy to completely reinvent the way that organizations conduct top down planning activities and generate key decision-making visuals.  Eliminate the need for numerous presentation decks and spreadsheets strewn across shared sites by using an interactive roadmap solution that facilitates consensus on investments among key stakeholders.

    ·       The next phase of our reinvented Financial Budgeting & Forecasting, which provides financial analysts simple spreadsheet-like tools to facilitate planning and forecasting projects.  Now you can Create, Edit, Update, and Delete Financial Plans – as well as set them as Plan of Record or Populate them from underlying project data – within the modern user experience.

    ·       Risks, Issues, and Changes within the modern user experience.  The delivery of this key customer-requested functionality allows project managers to work with these key registers without switching back to the classic experience.

    ·       Additional enhancements to the new project management experience – improved project & task search and filtering options, longer to do’s, the ability to create projects without using autonumbering, and the introduction of a preliminary version of the My Tasks portal for team members.

    • New functionality added to assist customers with GDPR compliance. Customers can now define Personal Identifiable Information (PII) for resources and have the option to anonymize a resource's PII.

    ·       Numerous business intelligence improvements, including the introduction of trending for custom attributes, the availability of the data warehouse as a data source when writing NSQL queries, and the upgrade of Advanced Reporting to Jaspersoft 6.4.2.

    ·       Increased flexibility for SaaS customers to consume the CA PPM data warehouse using OData:  The ability to provision multiple users to access the OData feed for your organization.

    ·       A new option to enable the Modern Software Factory in your organization: Flow user stories from Agile Central into CA PPM.

    ·       Other selected customer-requested improvements, such as Export to CSV from Classic portlet/list views and the ability to perform incremental rate matrix updates via XOG.
