Oracle Expounds on Primavera Software Roadmap

Since acquiring Primavera in 2008, Oracle has worked on enhancing several features of its software, such as application integration and mobile functionality.

Looking to the future, Oracle seeks to provide more governance of the project portfolio management (PPM) application. Tony Banks, product director for Primavera software, spoke recently to TechTarget editor Lena J. Weiner about the roadmap for Primavera software.

In the video, Banks said that Oracle's goal is to continue to deliver "its vision" of a "true" enterprise PPM solution. According to Banks, that means "single platform, single vendor."

But Banks added that it also means being able to organize projects across all departments, capitalizing on similar business functions across departments while acknowledging specific business use cases. Watch the video for more details.
