ProjExec 6.5 is now officially out (both on-premises and the cloud) marking the debut of the pure HTML version of the popular ProjExec Social Gantt that previously required the Java plug-in to run. While this capability was initially in plan for ProjExec 7, customers who have been using Google Chrome as their browser could not longer access the Social Gantt due to Google deciding to remove support the Java NPAPI plug-in last year. Rather than having customers wait for ProjExec 7, we decided to fast track the “Java-less” HTML Gantt by shipping this interim ProjExec 6.5 release.
One of the frequently asked questions is how the new ProjExec HTML Gantt compares to the ProjExec Java Gantt. In ProjExec 6.5, we made sure to maintain feature and UI parity with two exceptions:
– Printing an HTML Web Page directly from a browser does not provide the kind of printout control that you have in the Java version.
ProjExec is a complete enterprise project management solution for IBM Connections and IBM Connections Cloud. IBM customers who have been historically using Microsoft Project have found ProjExec to be a better alternative to manage projects and project portfolios enterprise-wide. By seamlessly integrating with IBM Connections, ProjExec users can take full advantage of social collaboration features to streamline the delivery process and improve project outcomes.
