Oracle Integration Solutions for Primavera P6
Oracle is now offering several integration options to ensure that Oracle’s Primavera project portfolio management solutions work with other applications in your business enterprise.
For Oracle’s E-Business Suite and Oracle’s JD Edwards EnterpriseOne, Oracle now offers process integration packs for Primavera P6 integration. These integration packs enable Primavera customers to combine the project, portfolio and resource management and scheduling power of Primavera P6 with the power of Oracle’s financial management tools. This capability allows organizations to customize how information is shared between applications and synchronize projects, work plans, resource assignments, progress, and financial data between those systems.
Oracle also continues to support Primavera Inspire for SAP, enabling organizations running SAP to align Primavera P6 project cost, schedule, and resource requirements with SAP's project system and plant maintenance information. Primavera P6 also works with Oracle’s AutoVue solutions, allowing users to view, annotate, and collaborate on critical project documents.
PM tec also has extensive experience in developing integration/interface solutions between Primavera software and many other applications including products from Autodesk, Deltek, Sage, ARES Corporation, and many others.

Getting the Most From Your Primavera Project Management Software
At PM tec, we have always understood that the implementation of any new business process must take into consideration three elements – People, Processes, and Tools.
The People in the organization must have the suitable training, experience, and competencies to manage the new business processes. The Processes developed must support the organization’s desired end result and project stakeholder’s requirements for adoption of the processes. And finally, the appropriate Tools should be provided to manage the processes and ensure that the processes are generating the desired results.
Like any other business process, addressing these three elements in the implementation of project management software will increase the likelihood that the tool provides the desired business value, while reducing cost and schedule risks associated with the implementation. Consideration of these attributes becomes even more essential when implementing an Enterprise Portfolio and Project Management (EPPM) tool like Oracle Primavera P6. In many cases, addressing all three of these essential elements will also help to ensure that the new tools are properly adopted and that the new functions and processes are embraced by the organization’s end users.
Whether an organization is considering purchasing program/project management software or desires to maximize the benefits of tools that it already owns, PM tec can provide the support to address all three essential elements of the implementation.
PM tec’s experienced project managers assist all sizes of organizations in analyzing and evaluating their project management business processes. Our services range from informal surveys of business process and comparison with industry best practices to formal analysis using Project Management Institute’s Organizational Project Management Maturity Model (OPM3) tool. As processes are being defined, PM tec’s requirements management specialists can assist organizations in documenting the processes and derive from the processes a set of functional requirements to be used in the configuration of the PM tools and design of the training program. As significant changes in business practices often need to be implemented in accordance with an organization’s change management policies or configuration management practices, our associates can work with an organization to develop a phased implementation roadmap to deliver new features and functionality in planned increments over a defined time period.
Once processes are defined and requirements documented, PM tec’s Oracle-accredited Primavera Implementation Specialists can work with an organization to configure the software’s data structures according to requirements, develop reports, define and deploy default user settings and dashboards, and design and implement user access and authorities. Our Implementation Specialists can develop test plans to certify that the system meets all functional requirements and document the tested configuration for the purpose of configuration management.
We also help ensure that people are equipped with the appropriate project management competencies, regardless of their role in the organization, through our proprietary training and project management workshops. PM tec also maintains a staff of Oracle University certified trainers that can provide standardized Oracle Primavera training using the latest materials available from Oracle University. Our training staff can also develop customized, role-based training to ensure that users understand not only the functionality of the software, but its use within the project management processes defined by the organization.
PM tec understands that each solution will need to be sized and tailored based on the needs and technical capabilities of each organizations differ, and our team members can serve in either an advisory role or as fully integrated members of the project team.
