Learn How Oracle's Primavera Smart City Projects Solution Can Reduce the Risks of Transformation Initiatives

Cities throughout the world are facing similar pressures—growing populations and heightened expectations among constituents are spurring planners to introduce a wide range of modern citizen services. Smart City transformation initiatives are one answer, but they also present significant hurdles.

"To implement a transformation roadmap, leaders must orchestrate many interrelated projects and initiatives," says Werner Maritz, Oracle Director of Public Sector and Infrastructure Strategy. "They often span multiple areas, including transportation, energy, water, education, healthcare, safety, and security. As a result, planners must successfully manage complex project portfolios."

It's no wonder that cities are struggling with all this complexity. For example, to ensure maximum value creation for the citizens, city leaders must select the correct projects to implement from the large number of possible opportunities available to them. Second, these stakeholders must secure adequate funding for all projects selected, either from public or private sector sources. Lastly, leaders must accurately track how these funds are being allocated to specific projects in the city, thereby ensuring financial governance across the Smart City project portfolio.

A new interactive playbook, "360° Overview an Oracle Primavera Framework," explains the forces fueling Smart Cities transformations and offers practical advice and case studies to guide the creation of successful implementation strategies.

The playbook also provides insights into Oracle's Primavera Smart City Projects Solution, which draws on the extensive capabilities of the Oracle technology platform. The solution deals effectively with the complexity of working across multiple verticals or responsibilities in the city through its easy to use web based interface. The solution's ability to manage a program level critical path schedule across multiple projects simplifies the co-ordination of delivery dates and milestones between various contractors and suppliers, provides visibility of relevant project information to all stakeholders involved in bringing the Smart City transformation initiatives to citizens. Post-build Oracle's Primavera continues to deliver visibility, providing full infrastructure management across the entire lifecycle.

"The modern city leader understands that a technology platform like Oracle Primavera could assist them in managing the complexity and delivering real value to their citizens in exchange for the taxes levied by the city," Maritz says. "We can help with the processes and systems to assist the people in building their capabilities in this area."
