By Sylvie MacKenzie, PMP on Dec 12, 2011
The new Primavera Contract Management, Business
Intelligence Publisher Edition, is designed to help companies
deliver more construction projects on schedule and within scope, while reducing
overall project costs, schedule delays, and risks.
The latest edition provides an enterprise version of Primavera Contract Management that helps companies streamline document collaboration and management, improve team member collaboration, avoid claims, and provide visibility into contractor performance. Key enhancements in the new release include
Expanded reporting. The addition of Oracle Business Intelligence Publisher provides a comprehensive and flexible report-writing functionality within Primavera Contract Management. With 150 standard reports and the ability to create their own reports, users gain visibility into potential problems early and can analyze comparative trends and cause and effect among multiple projects. In addition to utilizing Oracle Business Intelligence Publisher for reporting, the new edition also uses it in place of Microsoft Word for letter templates, offering customers the freedom to choose their letter editing format. Letter templates are created in Oracle Business Intelligence Publisher using a data model and are stored as an RTF file for enhanced flexibility.
Support for Oracle User Productivity Kit. This new capability allows organizations to customize online tutorials by providing access to process and training documents directly from within the application. Oracle User Productivity Kit reduces the time required to bring new users up-to-speed and reinforces policies for existing users.
Technology enhancements. Among the latest additions is support for Oracle WebLogic 11g and support for 64-bit environments. Oracle designed this release to be Web services–enabled, offering another integration option in addition to existing APIs.
Familiar look and feel. Oracle designed the latest release so that its user interface corresponds with the look and feel of the entire Primavera suite of products, enabling users to move between products with ease.
