CPqD develops innovative information and communication technologies for large Brazilian companies and institutions in the telecommunications, utility, financial, industrial manufacturing, and public administration sectors. Founded in 1976, CPqD runs the largest research and development program in its field in Latin America. Its goal is to contribute to the country’s competitiveness and greater digital inclusion in society, bringing product technologies, critical mission systems, and associated consulting services to the market.
Faced with a great expansion of its activities and an increase in the number of projects and customers, CPqD decided to implement a solution that would provide the company with more efficient and centralized project management.
CPqD deployed Oracle’s Primavera P6 Enterprise Project Portfolio Management Web Services to achieve total control of its portfolio of projects, including those of the greatest complexity. With a total of 154 licenses implemented, CPqD today has a long-term view of project planning and can accurately measure the resources it has available for each project. It is also able to precisely monitor each project’s costs, demands, and deliverables.
“Oracle’s Primavera is an essential tool for our day-to-day business, and I notice the effort Oracle makes to constantly innovate and to add more functionality in an increasingly shorter period of time,” said Márcio Alexandre da Silva, IT department project coordinator, CPqD.
“Verano supported our implementation of Primavera P6 Enterprise Project Portfolio Management Web Services, which raised the quality of our project management. During the implementation, Verano worked with us directly in the mapping phase,” da Silva said.
