Oracle Primavera

Primavera is well suited for any size projects. The only time I can see it being less appropriate is when the cost of the software and maintenance agreement add significantly to the overall cost. Smaller projects could use a cheaper tool to get the job done depending on level of detail the client is looking for.

Pros

EPM Live

  • Its ease of use is its great strength.

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.

Oracle Primavera

  • Reporting functions and graphs are basic. We dump the data from Primavera to Excel. In my experience most companies have this practice.
  • Import/export functions need greater options.
  • Risk module needed instead of secondary software.

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

Alternatives Considered

EPM Live

This product was brought into the company by Customer Service but then the director left so it was never used and IT thought we would try it out. After 2 years we are no further along then we were before just more frustrated.

Oracle Primavera

I did not select Oracle Primavera Portfolio Management. It was an inherent application. Having used other applications, compared to those, Oracle Primavera Portfolio Management is a far superior tool for portfolio management. However, in the span of the last 10 years, there are newer, perhaps better products available. Oracle Primavera Portfolio Management does still manage to get the job done, but its time in the sun is fading.
