Plan to attend the Oracle Primavera Transmission and Distribution Utilities Roundtable event, hosted by Kansas City Power & Light.

The challenges faced by utilities are numerous: from rising regulatory pressures and consumer demand for lower prices, to a shortage in skilled workers and the need for cleaner forms of energy. To succeed in this marketplace, utilities must carefully manage their projects and resources, while controlling costs and mitigating project risks.

With Oracle's Primavera solutions, utilities can successfully select, plan, and execute projects across the enterprise, including outages, maintenance, and capital expansion projects.

Through improved operations, Primavera enterprise project and portfolio management solutions can help you do the following:

  • Manage financial performance by delivering projects with less risk and superior returns
  • Optimize operational metrics such as craft productivity, by ensuring that the right people are on the right project at the right time
  • Enhance contractor collaboration through schedule integration analysis
  • Create "what-if" scenarios, allowing all project stakeholders to see how contingencies will affect the project and how different responses will have an impact on the budget and schedule
  • Capture key industry knowledge and establish best practices across the enterprise to reduce the impact of resource shortages due to attrition
Don’t miss these informative sessions and the chance to network with your peers.
