Kaseya Software Roadmap

This roadmap provides a high-level/macro view of the product direction for Kaseya. The purpose is to provide directional visibility and is not intended to be a feature by feature list; as standard practice, we provide details in our release notes. In addition to developing new features, Kaseya is also investing significant resources into performance improvements, scalability and architectural enhancements that may not be apparent in a roadmap.

Kaseya will continue to have three regular software releases per year: January, May, and September, that cover all of our products. We will formally update the roadmap after each release.

The upcoming releases have different levels of detail and certainty, depending on the delivery dates:

  • The May 31, 2014 Release has the most detail, and represent a formal engineering plan.
  • The September 30, 2014 Release has slightly less detail, and reflects our intent. This plan may change as we continue to gather additional customer and market information.
  • The January 31, 2015 Release contains less detail, and reflects our vision. The January plan may also change as we gather information.

For continuity, the now available January 31, 2014 release (6.5) is also included.

Here is the current plan:

Available on January 31, 2014 Kaseya Virtual System Administrator (VSA) 6.5
