There’s definitely a trend that is growing steam amongst companies that use Enterprise Project Management systems like Primavera P6. It’s integrating cost and schedule data into a single system. We’re finally realizing that there a just too many cost management spreadsheets that get produced every time a project manager asks for a progress report.
Oracle Primavera’s Inspire solution allows cost and schedule data to move back and forth between P6 and SAP. Oracle has just released Primavera Inspire version 8 with some improvements:
- Better performance and memory management: A known bug in Inspire caused the tool to essentially hang when syncing large projects to SAP. That bug has been fixed with Release 8.
- Improved Materials Management integration with SAP
- Compatibility with all versions of Primavera P6 EPPM upto release 8.2
