In conjunction with the recent release of Primavera P6 15.1, Oracle has also released Primavera Analytics 15.1. If you’re confused about the version number, we explained the change in our article on the Primavera P6 release here. While a much smaller release than Primavera P6, Primavera Analytics 15.1 still has some useful and welcome updates. Below is an overview of these new features:
Cash Flow Dashboard
The Cash Flow Dashboard is targeted at senior finance folks and allows them to monitor and track variances in project spending against the baseline. This can be done using time periods defined by the user and against CBS codes. This Cash Flow Dashboard can also look at trends based on cash flow forecasts.
Businesses Process Dashboard
The Businesses Process Dashboard provides an organizational view of vendor information associated with contracts. This can be viewed in weekly snapshots and by location. The Businesses Process Dashboard can also track any amendments that have been made to contract amounts and why.
Cost Sheet Dashboard
The Cost Sheet Dashboard offers up a summary view of financing accuser projects. These can include funding, budgets, commitments, etc. The Cost Sheet Dashboard is a three page dashboard covering cost sheet overview analysis, cost information by location and cost history analysis.
The three new Dashboards in this release provide very practical and useful capabilities to Primavera Analytic users. Dashboards are becoming more widely used within organizations and existing users will warmly welcome this update.
