Organizations today face a host of evolving operational challenges in the area of facilities management. These include the need to make decisions on how to plan and deploy limited resources, to minimize the risk and impact of asset outages and failures, and to limit energy consumption and implement sustainable practices. And while these objectives are common to organizations of virtually all shapes and sizes, facilities management challenges become ever more complex as an organization's portfolio grows.
Just ask Oracle.
Oracle, whose facilities portfolio includes around 600 buildings representing 25 million square feet of space, at any time has more than $1 billion in facilities projects in the works. Managing operations at that scale requires extraordinary visibility, coordination, control, and standardization.
In a two-part video series, Amy Aves, senior director of global real estate operations at Oracle, joins members of the Oracle Construction and Engineering strategy team for a tour of Oracle's Redwood City, Calif., headquarters—and a wide-ranging discussion of how Oracle manages its portfolio of facilities.
Watch part one, "Trends, Challenges in Real Estate and Facilities Management," to learn about the challenges Oracle faced in managing a vast and growing footprint—and stay tuned for the sequel. In part two, "How Oracle Overcame Its Facilities Management Challenges," Aves discusses Oracle's own journey to identify and implement the optimal technology solution across its enterprise. As part of that discussion, she explains why the Primavera Unifier Facilities and Asset Lifecycle Management solution covered all the bases.
