What About Cloud Hosting?
We can’t look at how much Primavera P6 costs without discussing cloud options. The Cloud hosting option is becoming increasingly more popular. It does currently seem more focused on larger numbers of users rather than a small business. Also, the cloud option is web based, it really is aimed more at Primavera P6 EPPM users than Primavera P6 Professional. The cloud hosting options are currently divided into two basic options:
- Oracle Cloud – with this option offered directly by Oracle, the Primavera P6 costs are simply charged per user / per month. This is because it’s a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) model. You may find that Oracle won’t offer this to businesses with fewer than 25 users.One of the key advantages of Oracle Cloud is that the software is automatically updated with new releases. As a user, you don’t have the hassle of dealing with complex installations.
- Other hosting companies – These provide hosting for P6, but you have to own the Primavera licenses in order to use their services. Therefore the Primavera P6 costs are a combination of license and hosting costs. That said, there are some lesser known companies leasing Primavera P6 licenses with their hosting options.
As you can see, it’s really easy to to find out how much Primavera P6 costs directly from Oracle. One comforting observation is that, the Primavera P6 cost for licenses hasn’t really changed it quite a few years. So, it remains a pretty predictable number which is useful in business planning when trying to plan a few years out. It’s also a good idea to check to see if there’s a better deal to be had from an Oracle reseller.
