Clarity PPM 15.1

CA Technologies, A Broadcom Company, just released the Clarity PPM patch. The patch continues improvements on the release that brought us the Mobile App, making this a great time to upgrade.

We demoed the Mobile App and Clarity PPM 15.5.1 in a recent webinar. Here’s the link if you missed it: What’s New in the Mobile App and Clarity PPM 15.5.1? 

We’re also excited to see the return of the Clarity PPM brand with this patch. While mixed product names will be seen for quite some time, the patch is officially branded Clarity PPM. Welcome news.

For our customers using Firefox, Edge, or Chrome browsers, the patch introduces the Phoenix UI Theme. This skin is designed to make the Classic UI look like the Modern UX.
