News Facts

Further simplifying enterprise project portfolio management, Oracle today announced the launch of Oracle's Primavera Inspire for SAP 7.0 for enhanced integration between Oracle's Primavera P6 Enterprise Project Portfolio Management and SAP enterprise resource planning (ERP) project-related modules.
Oracle’s Primavera Inspire for SAP 7.0 enables executives and project managers to achieve measurable ROI by aligning material, resource, schedule and financial information between SAP’s Materials Management, Project System and Plant Maintenance modules and Oracle’s Primavera P6.
Primavera Inspire for SAP 7.0 improves project planning and execution by giving project managers the visibility needed to more efficiently manage and utilize resources across corporate divisions and departments.
The integration also enables large capital projects to be delivered on time and within budget.
Primavera Inspire for SAP 7.0 helps organizations to improve the management and forecasting of material, cost, schedule and resource requirements for routine maintenance.
By giving organizations visibility into past and expected future project performance across both Primavera and SAP systems, Primavera Inspire for SAP 7.0 helps mitigate project risk and increase workforce productivity, and extends the customer’s investment in their existing SAP project management modules by enabling fully synchronized project, materials and resource management.

Synchronized Project, Materials and Resource Management

Primavera Inspire for SAP 7.0 now leverages components of SAP’s materials management process, which further extends Primavera P6 or managing all of the projects that are core to an organization’s business.
New capabilities within Primavera Inspire for SAP 7.0 include:
Materials Management Integration from SAP ERP to Primavera P6 - Supports the visibility of stock and non-stock material requirements as resource assignments or activities in the Primavera P6 project plan, allowing project managers and operational leads to not only see required materials and their status, but also the impact of long lead items in the project plan.
E-mail Confirmation/Notification of Synchronization Results - Leverages synchronization scheduling functionality by providing e-mail confirmation/notification with synchronization details without requiring end users to log into the system.
Performance and Memory Utilization Improvements - Technical enhancements deliver up to a 30 percent improvement in resource master synchronization while also enabling parallel processing for faster synchronization and improved memory consumption on large data volumes.

“Lack of visibility into project requirements and resources not only increases risk, but also negatively impacts an organization’s ability to complete projects on-time and within budget,” said Joel Koppelman, senior vice president and general manager, Oracle’s Primavera GBU. “With the introduction of Oracle’s Primavera Inspire for SAP 7.0, Oracle is enabling organizations to increase visibility into past and expected future project performance by seamlessly integrating Primavera P6 with SAP. This integration not only helps organizations easily synchronize project, materials and resource management, but importantly enables reduced project risk and increased workforce productivity, and drives ROI.”
