Here’s What’s New in Clarity PPM 15.5

Modern UX features are the major focus of Clarity PPM 15.5 (it became available for general use in early September).

The new features in Modern UX for this point release focus on:

  • Teams
  • Channels
  • Roadmaps
  • Beta Investment Types


Teams and Team-Based Planning allow organizations to conduct resource planning in a more efficient fashion by eliminating the need to plan every task or project all the way down to the individual resource.


Channels allow you to punch out to external locations within the Modern UX to streamline access to other useful management tools.


This is one of the industry’s first combinations of visual Roadmapping with Time-Phased Fiscal Period Planning. Other enhancements include multi-column grid sorting and saving of grid column widths as part of a view.

Beta Investment Types

These investment types help reduce governance friction by allowing organizations to articulate your investment plans in your stakeholders’ preferred language.
