Oracle has released the latest version Primavera P6 ahead of Collaborate 16 later this month. P6 16.1 is Oracle’s first release of Primavera P6 EPPM this year, following the new version numbering convention, which reflects the year of release and the release number. Primavera P6 16.1 was widely expected to be released during the Collaborate 16 conference in Las Vegas on 10 – 14 April.



Oracle is expected to release two versions of Primavera P6 per year, with release 16.2 expected in the third quarter of 2016.


Among other enhancements and new features, Primavera P6 16.1 P6 continues the process of removing Java-based applets from the application in exchange for pages written in HTML5. These pages load faster and do not require additional plug-ins



Release 16.1 builds on the solution overview and strategic roadmap for the Primavera solutions presented in June last year – with major themes including integrated solutions, business intelligence, mobile access and solution accelerators. Last week Prescience Technology posted a sneak peek to our LinkedIn page of the updated Primavera Unifier user interface and navigation, which has been updated to reflect consistency among all members of the Primavera product family.


Below is a list of Primavera P6 16.1 new features, usability enhancements and P6 Professional updates. Stay tuned for further analysis from the Prescience Technology team as we road-test and review P6 16.1. Subscribe to stay up to date with all Primavera P6 16.1 updates.
