- Published on Wednesday, 25 April 2012 11:56
Oracle introduced a new project portfolio management app for the Apple iPhone and a Web application for a variety of tablet computers that streamline communications between project team members.
Oracle’s Primavera P6 Team Member for iPhone and Oracle’s Primavera P6 Team Member Web interface enable project managers, project controls professionals, PMOs, and others to capture and share status information using mobile devices. P6 Team Member Web interface is optimized to run on most tablet computers or browsers.
By providing the most accurate information directly into project plans, these two new mobile project portfolio management (PPM) offerings help project managers and investors make informed decisions to assure that projects can be completed on time and within budget.
“An accurate view of project status is critical to the success of any project as it helps mitigate project risks and delays,” says Mike Sicilia, senior vice president and general manager, Oracle’s Primavera. “By enabling project participants to quickly, easily, and conveniently share updates at any time and from anyplace, Oracle’s Primavera P6 Team Member for iPhone and Oracle’s Primavera P6 Team Member Web interface fundamentally change the way project participants can share information.”
The new mobile applications are part of Oracle’s Primavera P6 Enterprise Portfolio Project Management (EPPM) 8.2. Free to current Primavera P6 Enterprise Portfolio Project Management users, Primavera P6 Team Member for iPhone is available at the Apple App Store, and Primavera P6 Team Member Web interface is available as part of standard maintenance.
Improved Communications Anywhere, anytime access to project information helps organizations focus on managing project delivery and eliminate time spent tracking down project status updates. The mobile applications enable users to update their status directly into Primavera P6 Enterprise Portfolio Project Management or stage changes for approval by the project manager.
The new releases include an intuitive user interface that improves communication between all project participants and supports informed decision-making by providing convenient access to real-time project data.
The new tools are part of Oracle’s comprehensive portfolio of enterprise project portfolio management solutions, which are designed to help customers manage their entire portfolio lifecycle from inception to execution.
