let-rego-be-your-guide-guidebookFree registration is now open for regoUniversity | Upgrading to CA PPM 14.4 with Jaspersoft, a live Rego Webinar held Wednesday, July 20th at 12:00 PM EST.

Presented by Ramesh Rathnam and Darren Greer (see bios below), participants will learn how to reduce the risk and duration of upgrades by leveraging Rego’s best practice approach. Ramesh and Darren are expected to emphasize the loss of Business Objects and strategies for moving to Jaspersoft.

“We’ll cover the pros and cons of upgrading and what the latest patches bring to the table,” says Darren Greer, Technical Consultant for Rego. “And because we’ve done so many upgrades, we can easily help you make it a smoother process.”

“Even On Demand is not effortless,” says Steve Seaney, Vice President of Project Delivery. “You need somebody who knows what to expect and what’s going to happen before it does, so you can be prepared to address it.”

Participants will also learn when and where a fresh start upgrade makes sense, how to get a free architecture stack review, and what it takes to remediate tricky configurations, like financial structures.

“We’ve got a lot of experience to share about things to do well in advance of an upgrade, including some cautions about how to avoid the edge of the Tomcat abyss, expand functionality, and improve performance,” says Ramesh Rathnam, Principal Architect.

CA PPM 14.4 changes include new Data Warehouse configuration options and performance improvements for Jaspersoft. The My Reports portlet has been discontinued and replaced by Advanced Reporting features, and Business Objects can no longer be used.  Also inaccessible: studio lookups, object action menus, and links to legacy reporting options.

CA PPM administrators, as well as functional and technical users can benefit from this free webinar, and anyone in the community is welcome to apply for registration. Reserve your seat now for regoUniversity | Upgrading to CA PPM 14.4 with Jaspersoft.
