NEW! APPLIED ORACLE PRIMAVERA P6 PROFESSIONAL WORKSHOPS
Since the original Primavera P6 was acquired by Oracle in 2008, the product set has grown significantly and now includes multiple applications. This has come about mainly through acquisition, but also includes some newly developed software.
The breadth of options available sometimes causes confusion for both our existing and potential clients as to which product is actually right for them, so in this article we’ve aimed to provide a helpful digest of what’s what and make the decision process that little easier.
For the purpose of this piece we have not included the Textura product sets, which shall be covered in another article. We’ve also left out Primavera Risk Analysis owing to it being gradually phased out, as its functions are fulfilled across other products in the Primavera suite.
The product list is as follows:
P6 EPPM is the flagship product for globally prioritising, planning, managing and executing projects, programs and portfolios. P6 EPPM comprises two flavours: P6 Web Access and P6 Professional. These applications can be deployed on-premise, on the Oracle cloud or on other non-Oracle hosted platforms.
P6 Professional is designed to handle large scale, highly complex projects allowing you to organise up to 100,000 activities with unlimited resources. P6 Professional can also be deployed as a stand-alone application (known as PPM)
Team Member is an additional component which uses mobile interfaces such as phones or tablets to provide a quick, convenient and easy way to update project status.
Key features of P6 include:
This powerful project controls platform is truly the best-in-class, offering a project lifecycle management solution that is second to none. It includes workflow, business rules and earned value, along with management functionalities for:
Also included are capital planning, project delivery, real estate management and more. Unifier provides governance across all project phases, from planning and building to ongoing operations and management, giving you real-time visibility across projects enabling you to make fast, accurate – and cost effective – decisions.
Straight out of the box, Unifier is simple to deploy and use, but its real strength is in its ability to meet your own specific needs, with the option to create custom functionalities to accommodate bespoke business processes executed within the project controls function.
This is done without the need to write any code, by building your own functionality and using workflow and form configuration. The benefit of this is that it can mitigate the need to implement another specialist software product, putting everything you need underneath one roof while still meeting the industry standard and custom requirements.
Unifier is also deployable on-premise or in the cloud, such as via the Oracle Primavera SaaS option.
Gateway is the glue that really sticks other applications together, creating a connected product set capable of sending data between a raft of Oracle Primavera solutions and other Oracle and third-party applications, such as Oracle PeopleSoft Projects (ESA) and SAP.
It can be implemented both on-premise and in the cloud, both Oracle and non-Oracle, where it will enable you to optimise resource usage and improve data consistency between applications.
Key Features include:
Aconex was acquired by Oracle as a project collaboration solution that connects with Primavera P6, complementing the existing Oracle Primavera suite.
