For organizations with 10+ employees, I think it is suitable. Smaller shops might find it overly complex.

Oracle
The scenarios based on my experience where Oracle Primavera Portfolio Management is well suited and the primary reason for using it is that most current decision-making processes do not effectively analyze and well use the data needed to link among the strategic objectives and the implementation plans so Primavera solutions can help on that by combining the best-practice work control processes and the suitable evaluation metrics with the possibility to store and analyze all the relevant data and information hence Primavera Portfolio Management helps to achieve the strategic goals and deliver the best value.

  • CAC authentication is required in my arena, and OPPM can work in conjunction with a secondary application to allow for this added layer of security.
  • Allows for security/permissions by customizable roles via user types and user groups. This keeps users in check with only certain abilities to edit or read, etc...
  • All kinds of abilities to build custom reports, as well as built in. Export formats include: CSV, Excel, PPT, Word. Customers like reports, and OPPM does a good job at its offerings.
  • Visual aids such as charts and graphs offer some eye appeal. This is useful for presentations, for depicting data.
  • Has the ability to offer document storage via attachment. Attaching supporting documents is a must with portfolio management.

  • P6 is not as intuitive as other scheduling software. It usually requires someone who is trained in the program to use it exclusively.
  • P6 can have multiple versions of the baseline schedule. This is not intuitive like saving a file, which usually leads to confusion.
  • P6 is very costly for smaller companies to afford.

Alternatives Considered
Ingram Micro
Connectwise was the 600 pound gorilla with lots of features, but it was also the titantic, too big to get out of its own way. We found it too complex to use and too archaic to integrate with. As powerful as it was, it was missing a few key features that a modern PSA like CloudBlue had as a matter of course. CloudBlue feels like the new generation, and so far it's only gotten better as they grow.

Oracle is better laid out and has more functionality as well as end-user flow. The login process, billing, and construction management features are easy to find, easy to use, and helpful. The limitations on Quickbooks restrict users from the ability to view and bill full contracts if broken down, to track and show % complete. Procore is confusing.

Return on Investment
Ingram Micro
  • It's allowed us to migrate away from home grown solutions to adhere to industry standards and better utilize our engineer's time.
  • Quoting new projects and hardware is easier to delegate and vastly more efficient than our previous methods.

  • P6 is critical to the execution of all of our projects. Without it we would have less control of our projects.
  • One of our key business objectives is to deliver projects on time or ahead of schedule. P6 supports us in this goal and allows our superintendents to manage complicated construction projects.
