Monitor and Optimize Portfolio Performance:
Gain full visibility to evaluate portfolio health and performance throughout the project lifecycle. Analyze project portfolio activity, status, and success metrics.
Focus on the Projects that Matter Most:
Streamline project portfolio management in the cloud to optimize investment mix and maximize return. Propose, inventory, prioritize, and select projects in a collaborative environment.
Plan, Schedule, and Deliver Projects:
Robust tools make it easy to plan and manage multiple projects at the same time — and ensure optimal use of resources. Evaluate and select optimal project schedule scenarios, including performing "what-if" analysis.
Keep Projects and Teams on Track:
Make sure all stakeholders have the access and visibility they need to plan, schedule, monitor, and deliver superior projects. Monitor project progress against original and current baselines.
Digitize and Optimize Lean Construction:
Streamline Lean construction task management and improve project team coordination and delivery. Collaboratively define tasks, determine due dates and commit to completion plans.
Integrate Lean with CPM Scheduling:
Monitor performance and fully integrate Lean construction processes with the master Critical Path Method schedule. Automatically generate and capture key performance metrics, including planned percent complete (PPC).
Manage Risks and Opportunities:
The Oracle Primavera Cloud risk register provides a central location for identification, assessment, categorization, and monitoring of all project risk and opportunities.
Run Risk Analysis Using Monte Carlo Simulations:
Use advanced Monte Carlo-based analysis to gain deeper understanding into the impact of potential risks and opportunities.

Amjad M.

Market leader scheduling and planning software

It was my daily driver for years and despite the steep learning curve, it was an extremely capable tool.


Amirshahab S.

Accurate Project tracking app

I call it the best Project control and scheduling app for construction projects.


Rodrigo R.

Powerful but not intuitive PM framework

Working as expected for experienced project managers. Poor interface for less experienced users.


João luís M.

Tool of the Future

The software described here is ORACLE PRIMAVERA CLOUD, which more than a tool, it is a platform that combines different tools for different needs, addressing different domains of Enterprise Project Portfolio management.
Even the shared video is describing the first implementation of this tool in Europe (lead by me and a colleague).
People commenting here are talking about Primavera P6 which is a tool dedicated mainly to schedule and resource management. Eventually Risk Management if combined with Primavera Risk Analysis (other tool).
In fact, the tool was called Oracle Prime until 2019 and this rebranding lead to an obvious confusion. The problem with this is that some remarks about the interface not having an appealing look and not being intuitive are for P6.

It was my daily driver for years and despite the steep learning curve, it was an extremely capable tool.

Pros

- has everything required for project scheduling using critical path method (WBS, activities, cost and resource loading)
- Global change offers an unbelievably powerful solution to change thousands of activities on the fly.
- Can handle very large schedules that include tens of thousands of activities at ease.
- Works using databases rather than project files which makes it suitable for working on many projects and offers many types of databases (Oracle, SQL server, SQLite)
- supports single or multiple users
- now has the EPPM version which is cloud-based and has improved immensely over the years

Cons

- It shines for large and complex projects, for smaller and simpler schedules it tends to be more cumbersome.
- It requires a very good understanding of how the software and CPM work when analysing results. Otherwise; mistakes can be done easily
- While powerfull, the reporting feature of the Pro version (Standalone) looks antiquated in comparison to the EPPM cloud version.
- The standalone version has not received any important feature updates for years.
- Lacks the seamless integration with MS Office that MS Project has
- Requires IT assistance to migrate the database from one computer to another

I call it the best Project control and scheduling app for construction projects.

Pros

From P3 to recent version, I used this application for tracking construction projects. After setting the baseline, it is very easy to update the project, and print any report that someone may need. For example, in the company I used to work, as Project Manager consultant, I used this app to control Multi Millions dollars projects, as well as Cement Factories, Dairy Factories, even residential complex.
I always use this app to start scheduling, and then for weekly and monthly reports. So easy to play around resourcing and leveling activities.

Cons

Creating a baseline file is a little challenging, If you are new, you might need to redo most of your work several time.(Not as easy as MSP in correcting your files)

Working as expected for experienced project managers. Poor interface for less experienced users.

Pros

Powerful platform with options for most of the PM areas of interest. I really liked the capabilities to manage resources and cost.

Cons

Not intuitive at all. The user interface may look complex and hard to use for not so experienced users. The data import feature is super confuse and had to be improved.

Pros

This is the most modern and broader project management platform in the market, still combining very powerful and some unique tools

Cons

This is still a young tool, and of course still has features that are currently under fast development
