Claims to improve project planning and execution
Oracle has launched Primavera Inspire for SAP 7.0 for enhanced integration between Primavera P6 Enterprise Project Portfolio Management and SAP enterprise resource planning (ERP) project-related modules.
The company claims that the new offering enables executives and project managers to achieve measurable ROI by aligning material, resource, schedule and financial information between SAP’s Materials Management, Project System and Plant Maintenance modules and Oracle’s Primavera P6.
In addition, Primavera Inspire for SAP 7.0 helps organisations improve the management and forecasting of material, cost, schedule and resource requirements for routine maintenance. It also helps mitigate project risk and increase workforce productivity, and extends the customer’s investment in their existing SAP project management modules, Oracle claims.
According to Oracle, new capabilities within Primavera Inspire for SAP 7.0 include, materials management integration from SAP ERP to Primavera P6 that supports the visibility of stock and non-stock material requirements as resource assignments or activities in the Primavera P6 project plan.
In addition, the new capabilities also provide e-mail confirmation/notification with synchronisation details without requiring end users to log into the system. It delivers up to a 30% improvement in resource master synchronisation while enabling parallel processing, the company claims.
Joel Koppelman, senior vice president and general manager of Primavera GBU at Oracle, said: “With the introduction of Oracle’s Primavera Inspire for SAP 7.0, Oracle is enabling organisations to increase visibility into past and expected future project performance by seamlessly integrating Primavera P6 with SAP.
“This integration not only helps organisations easily synchronise project, materials and resource management, but importantly enables reduced project risk and increased workforce productivity, and drives ROI.”
