Primavera P6 17.7 is here!
Posted on Tuesday, 4 July 2017
Our Primavera P6 EPPM customers will be excited to see several major enhancements in version 17.7. Customers will now be able to print from the EPS, Activity, and Resource Assignments views. We’ve also added new HTML5 Activity Network and Trace Logic views to help customers better understand the relationships and organization of their schedules.
P6 Professional Client customers will see dramatic performance improvements with the addition of enhanced local caching. Local caching will improve the responsiveness of the application in many areas, including scheduling, copy project, and updating relationships.
Please contact us if you wish to discuss upgrading or moving to a hosted P6 solution.
Primavera Gateway v17.7 continues with improvements around enabling custom code extensions to make an effort of developing new connections with external applications easier and more intuitive for the gateway implementation team. In Primavera Gateway 17.7 we added a new feature – External Custom Providers - that allows a new provider to be built, deployed and maintained outside of Primavera Gateway Framework. By leveraging Primavera Gateway SDK and sample code, partners and implementation consultants can now significantly reduce the time required for developing custom integrations.
The July release of Analytics for both on premise and cloud customers contains many new features, including:

- More self-service data visualization samples using Oracle Data Visualization
- Support for Oracle Data Integrator (ODI) allowing for near real-time updates between P6 and Primavera Analytics
- Hybrid support allowing you to mix on premise and cloud solutions
