ERP & Project Management Come Together for Oracle Users

Last week, Oracle launched a new version of their Application Integration Architecture (AIA) Release 2.5 PPM Process Integration Packs (PIPs), which integrates project management and ERP.

The new offering is called Project Portfolio Management Integration Pack, and it connects Primavera P6 with E-Business Suite. In addition to integrating project management data, the new integrator also connects Oracle ERP users to invaluable financial information. It also allows them to synchronize information regardless of which platform houses the project information.

There is also a PPM Integration Pack for Primavera P6 and JD Edwards EnterpriseOne, which facilitates the integration of timesheets between the two platforms.

According the press release, the project management PIPs in Oracle AIA Release 2.5 will help project managers and accounting teams to join their business objectives. One of the best things about the new integrator is that it is a standards-based method for companies to integrate their processes across both Oracle and third-party applications.

It’s nice to see a big ERP play bridging the gap between ERP and project management, and hopefully other companies will follow suit.
