Clarity PPM | 14.1 MSP Integration and Studio Content Management

In our last post Clarity PPM (CA PPM) 14.1 Offers VersionOne Integration, we talked about the exciting new partnership between CA and VersionOne that’s allowing agile teams the flexibility to manage and execute projects and applications with whatever agile methodologies or tools they prefer. 

VersionOne Integration is only one upside of the October 2014 release of Clarity PPM 14.1. Aside from the new product branding, Clarity PPM 14.1 touts four new features.

  1. VersionOne Integration
  2. Microsoft Project Integration
  3. Studio Content Management
  4. On-Demand Integration Adapter 

Today we’re going to look at CA’s redesign of the Microsoft Project integration and the new Studio Content Management feature.

Dramatic Improvements in Clarity PPM 14.1 Microsoft Project Integration

CA pulled out all the stops when they redesigned the Microsoft Project integration. You’ll see huge improvements in performance, usability, and scalability.

To put it in context, some case studies showed a 6,000% performance improvement. That means some tasks that used to take twenty minutes now take twenty seconds.

Clarity PPM 14.1 Adds Studio Content Management

Another exciting feature of Clarity PPM 14.1 is Studio Content Management, which allows you to move configuration content between environments without having to know XML or XOG facilities. The easy-to-use interface packages configuration content, puts it in a file, and allows you to move the file to another Clarity PPM system.

Another perk: you can use the feature to package services and configured content for your own customers, as well as localize the content you’re deploying within the content manager.


To account for anticipated de-bugging, Rego Consulting recommends that you wait to upgrade until the next version comes out. Are you using the Clarity PPM 14.1 Microsoft Project integration or Studio Content Management? We’d love to hear your experience in the comments below.
