We wanted to compile a list of enhancements in the recent years that would be of interest for many of the users.
- Earned value calculation and fields at the resource assignment level. (P6 web only) Earned value metrics has been available at the activity level previously.
- View values on the histograms in Resource Profiles
- Resource assignment codes. Similar to activity codes users can assign user defined codes to the assignment records in order to group and filter them.
- Cloud. For sometime Primavera P6 is available as a cloud subscription. So customers having the 25 minimum users for an Oracle cloud deployment may opt to use the system from the cloud. This also brought the Cloud Connect driver for P6 Professional. Cloud connect is an alternative to direct client-server connections to Oracle and MS SQL Server databases. Available only when using Oracle database, Cloud Connect compress the data traffic and optimize the performance for not only Oracle cloud users but any P6 EPPM customer setting up a private Cloud or WAN deployment. Cloud connect is a modern alternative for customers who were using Citrix / Terminal server for geographically dispersed teams.
