Primavera Technical Consulting
Excellent technical consulting is a vital part of our structured approach to successful Primavera P6 deployments. You need the right mix of software to meet the needs of different users and stakeholders. Implementing Oracle Primavera P6 EPPM often requires many technical skills.
First, you will need people who know how to install all of the major components of the Primavera P6 EPPM suite including P6, BI Publisher, P6 Analytics, P6 Professional, WebLogic and all other prerequisites and supporting software tools.
You may need to migrate from Microsoft Project to Oracle Primavera so you don’t lose data.
Roles need to be clearly defined that will support the installation, manage updates, data maintenance, configuration and scheduling practice standards. Design decisions need to support the various reports and dashboards that will be demanded by users and stakeholders, which is critical to providing the right information to the right people at the right time.
It sounds technically challenging, right? That’s normal! There are a lot of parts to ensure a smooth deployment, and Ten Six can help accelerate your Primavera P6 EPPM implementation and ensure a smooth deployment that achieves the planned business goals.

Take the risk out of your implementation
Organizations that have attempted to deploy Primavera P6 EPPM without any up-front support, often learn the hard way. Mistakes made early in the process can cost dearly in lost productivity, lack of user buy-in, process reworking, tool reconfiguration, training and even lost internal and external credibility.
Sadly, even a modest investment in the implementation process right at the beginning of the rollout could have saved these organizations immeasurable amounts of time, money, user frustration and even staff attrition.
In a few extreme cases early mistakes have placed the entire investment in jeopardy and the deployment has been in danger of failing. This could easily have been avoided had these companies had the benefit of an experienced coach in their corner at the outset.
To put it in project risk management terms, rolling out an enterprise project management system without the experience to deploy it would appear in the risk register as “Known Unknowns”, a high probably, high impact item.
