Planview Releases New Version of Troux with Improved Scalability and Data Visualization for Enterprise Architecture

Latest release also provides initial support for Microsoft Power BI

AUSTIN, Texas – January 28, 2016

Planview® is launching Troux version 9.5 to address the increasingly complex use cases of enterprise architects driven by the need to manage larger-scale initiatives as well as extend portfolio analysis to include strategy, business capabilities and projects. A significant investment in product scalability has yielded an advanced user experience, with the ability to handle larger datasets and visualization capabilities that accelerate digital business transformations in progressively challenging technology and business environments.

“With the newest release, Planview continues to invest in the Troux product line and our solution for enterprise architects,” said Patrick Tickle, chief product officer for Planview. “The scalability and architectural enhancements in Troux 9.5 allow customers to solve business challenges in a more efficient way. Troux Insight users will see a 20X improvement in rendering core visualizations. In addition, the integration of Troux with Planview Enterprise brings together the portfolios supporting both enterprise architects and PMOs.”

This release includes additional customer-driven advancements that augment user experience, functionality and performance. Enhancements to the Troux REST API result in quicker read access for customers building custom integrations or user interfaces. Expanded support for Google Chrome in the Troux Navigate product now extends beyond end-user access to administrative capabilities, improving overall management of the solution.

Troux 9.5 introduces initial support for Microsoft Power BI®-based data visualization with the release of the Troux content pack. Software-as-a-service (SaaS) customers can view a modern dashboard for application portfolio management (APM), technology portfolio management (TPM) and business capabilities data. The content pack makes it easy for customers to browse and discover reports and datasets on a robust mobile platform.

“Microsoft Power BI allows users to add and merge data sources from across their enterprises for all Planview products, including Troux, Planview Enterprise and Projectplace,” said Louise K. Allen, senior vice president of product management for Planview. “This first release of the Troux content pack provides a new way to visualize enterprise architecture and enable better decisions that accelerate customers’ business transformation initiatives.”

This release includes the integration of Troux with Planview Enterprise to help enterprise architects and PMOs connect strategic planning and execution for a range of initiatives spanning programs through business transformation. With Troux 9.5, customers will have in-product access to help and best practices in the recently released Planview Customer Success Center.

Additional technical upgrades in Troux 9.5 are:

  • Windows 10 support for Troux Insight, Navigate and Architect
  • Alignment of product logos and documentation to a common Planview look and feel
  • Continued support of Flash visualizations

The new version of Troux will be available in February.
