EPM Live

I think EPM Live might be the right solution for a much smaller company, who does mainly business to business material sales. As a software company with a ramped subscription model and heavy use of Salesforce, it was not well suited to our business.

Oracle Primavera

Oracle Primavera Portfolio Management is a utilitarian product of a yesteryear gone by. It's straightforward and to the point. It is well suited for a customer base who is not interested in frills, portability, or a multitude of OOTB ability. It's for those who like to restrict and manage all control over users, code in queries, functions, and create customized reports for end users. It does what it does very well however, just do not expect it to be pretty. It's a 2007 product, so curb your excitement. It does handle all aspects of portfolio management well; financials, budgeting, spend plans, contracts, projects, staffing, workflows, etc... however, it is not intuitive to navigate, and will require some training.

  • Social Collaboration tools improve communication between departments

Oracle Primavera

  • Primavera as a scheduling software can manage large project schedules regardless of complexity.
  • P6 is powerful enough to identify the longest pathway to the completion of a project. This is also known as CPM.
  • P6 can handle multiple scenarios and save them as a separate baseline schedule. This can be helpful for figuring theoretical sequences.

Cons

EPM Live

  • This is a solid product. I do not have any suggested changes based on our experience. Cannot understand why there are any negative reviews here. The reviewer(s) must not have given the product a fair chance.

  • The software is high end with rich features, hence its rich price.
  • There is room for improvement in their customer service.
  • Oracle is doing its best in coming up with new features, and has a planned roadmap. It would be good if the enhancements are delivered faster.

The product is just not fitting our needs so we are looking at other alternatives. The system has gone down 3 times in the last 6 months and was down for at least half a day, timesheets have duplicate tasks, and it takes too long to save and submit. When trying to process updates it randomly changes our dates so we have to go back and fix them, sometimes tasks are lost and the system is just very confusing and hard to manipulate

EPM Live

EPM was easier to use, with better and simpler UI. The product was also a great combination of price and functionality compared to other tools

Oracle Primavera

The other scheduling software I used is Microsoft Project. Microsoft Project is a great tool, but it is not as robust as Oracle Primavera Portfolio Management. It can help build a much simpler
looking project, but if the project is most complex, it is best to use Oracle Primavera Portfolio Management.

Return on Investment

EPM Live

  • We had to pay EPM for a solution that was, for our business, unusable
  • We gained much needed experience in working with third party software vendors
Hilary Mohs | TrustRadius Reviewer

Oracle Primavera

  • 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.
