The modern enterprises face complex operational and management challenges as well as fierce competitions. Therefore, they must, on one hand, obtain real data about project operation, and on the other, gain insight into their own competitive advantages. Only by doing so can they provide accurate decisions for business operations, and maintain core competencies and industry leadership. Luckily, Oracle’s Primavera Enterprise Project Portfolio Management (EPPM) offers solutions to the two problems and helps to increase efficiency and profitability for modern enterprise management!
As is known to all, to ensure project success, enterprises must have a deep understanding of and control over the latest project information, including project schedules, budgets, resources, changes, risks, etc. But to obtain real data is really tough and is usually done across multiple projects, departments, business units and geographic regions. Actually, a lot of disconnected business processes and information systems lead to multiple project information silos, so that enterprises cannot efficiently respond to changing project needs, posing great challenges to business operation and success.
When enterprises are exposed to a highly competitive and dynamic market environment externally, and overwhelmed with management and decision difficulties internally, Oracle Primavera EPPM provides managers with true, real-time and reliable data and portfolio information. It increases data and information transparency while improving managers’ insight, thus enabling them to make timely, accurate and informed business decisions, and finally drive project success！
Capabilities such as project management, project portfolio management, project resource management, risk control, etc. are provided to drive project coordination, ensure orderly and efficient work, and dramatically improve enterprises’ ability to integrate and manage business.
Fully Understand, Strengthen and Maintain Corporate Competitive Advantages
To achieve success, enterprises also must fully understand and utilize their competitive advantages. And they must have a clear picture of both their competitors and particularly themselves to stay ahead of their peers.
To truly recognize competitive edge, corporate managers usually spend a lot of time gathering information from multiple systems and team members. Now, with Oracle Primavera, they can conduct accurate analysis of vast amounts of real data and portfolio projects for full visibility into corporate competitive advantages, enabling the enterprise to maintain and strengthen these competitive advantages for improved profitability.
