Oracle's Primavera P6 Enterprise Project Portfolio Management is the most powerful, robust, and easy to use solution for globally prioritizing, planning, managing and executing projects, programs and portfolios.
Customise and scale the applications to meet the needs of the various roles, functions and skill levels involved with the project. Oracle continues to deliver enterprise-wide, web-based project management features that improve your project management efficiencies. Oracle's Primavera P6 Professional Project Management gives today's project managers and schedulers the one thing they value most: control. Oracle's Primavera Portfolio Management is the leading portfolio management software solution, providing unmatched flexibility and infrastructure for enterprise portfolio management. Oracle's Primavera Contract Management is a document management, job cost and field controls solution that keeps construction projects on schedule and on-budget through complete project control.
Oracle's Primavera Risk Analysis is a full lifecycle risk analytics solution integrating cost and schedule risk management. NOTE: Names of previous versions of Risk Analysis include Pertmaster, Risk Manager and Risk Management. For only pence per day, the TimeControl timesheet software system can help organisations be more efficient, increase productivity, bring projects in on time and on budget and get the best return on investment.
Yet, many companies do not pay much attention to this fact and even if they can perform really well during the project execution, they may still have losses due to omissions from, or inaccuracies in, their estimates.
Technology is progressing rapidly today, and thanks to the application of Interoperable systems used in the Building and Process Industries, Cost Estimating can become the bridge that connects the Design phase with the Construction phase.
Nomitech was founded in 2005 and since then it has been focusing on the development of a powerful estimating system that stands out in the market. Today Nomitech maintains a specialised network of resellers throughout the world, is currently represented in 15 Countries and is rapidly expanding its business. The kick-off presentation of CostOS 3.6 was by ForgeTrack Ltd and Nomitech, at Oracle's offices in Moorgate, London, on 10th June 2010. Things have progressed to a great extent since Microsoft Excel was the absolute solution for Cost Estimating.
The above problems are caused because Excel is not a database, and even if someone tries to apply it as such there are strict limitations. By maintaining such a database, and making use of the powerful search engine of CostOS, estimators can very quickly find priced items, and amend them according to their project's needs.
There are several organisations today, whose major task is to develop and provide Cost Databases.
Nomitech realised the importance of this information and this is why it recreated these databases and applied them as relational resource databases, online. Although it may sound obscure, the vast majority of Planners rarely co-operate with the estimators in depth.
Some companies on the other hand start from the schedule first, they define the durations and the constraints and then they give it to the estimator to calculate the cost. After examining the above facts, Nomitech implemented a very important feature that synchronises the estimate with the project schedule. In addition due to CostOS's ability to synchronise with On-Screen Takeoff as well, changes made in the drawings and thus in the quantities can be then synchronised with the estimate, and the planners can see the effect on their activity durations, at the click of a button.
Despite the advanced productivity of using the 3D model for estimating, the true value of this method lies in the end product.
Designers, contractors and clients can then work on the 3D model together and optimise the project design or find more cost effective solutions. The momentum towards BIM has recently been accelerated by recent announcements in the UK press that Paul Morrell, the UK Government's chief construction adviser, has indicated that publicly procured building projects will be required to adopt Building Information Modelling or BIM. Oracle's Primavera Contractor is an affordable solution specifically built for Contractors that makes scheduling, reporting, and progress planning simple.
Oracle's Primavera P6 Reporting Database is a robust and powerful reporting and business intelligence database. While native analytical tools are provided in Primavera P6 Enterprise Project Portfolio Management and Primavera P6 Professional Project Management, this reporting database option allows you more flexibility in creating custom reports and business intelligence required for executive management and non-project management professionals. It can be nearly impossible to build annual budgets that consider forecasted project and program work plans along with detailed cost data.
Oracle's Primavera Inspire for SAP simplifies enterprise project, portfolio and resource management through it's flexible integration of Primavera P6 and SAP ERP. Oracle offers several integration options to ensure Oracle's Primavera Project Portfolio Management solutions work with other applications in the enterprise, including Oracle's E-business Suite, Oracle's JD Edwards EnterpriseOne, Oracle's AutoVue and SAP. The first two of the above integrations are provided under Oracle Applications Integration Architecture, which offers prebuilt solutions at the data, process, and user interface level, delivering a more complete process solution to business end users.
These integration solutions help organizations overcome fragmented processes that lead to lack of business alignment, low predictability in project execution and performance, and inconsistency in business decision-making. The Oracle Project Portfolio Management Integration Pack for Primavera P6 and E-Business Suite is pre-built integration to provide an end-to-end Enterprise Project Portfolio Management solution.

Following a company rebrand, we were asked to design and build a brand new website for TT, with an eye on future growth. TT Solutions and Interiors, Swindon, UK, design and manufacture furniture for various commercial and public-sector industries. Using ExpressionEngine we were able to design and build an easily editable site, which they can grow over time and promote their business effectively to both new and existing customers. There are always benefits and challenges of using microsites to promote yourself or your products, but they are one of the most cost effective ways of getting the message out there, and which stand a very good chance of being ranked highly.
Having already designed and built their website just over a year ago, it was a pleasure to be asked to re-design their logo and branding, along with their printed marketing materials.
Eden Blooms are constantly looking to keep things fresh and up-to-date, so this year they decided to re-design their logo and branding. Knowing that a lot of brides use mobile devices to browse websites like Pinterest and Facebook for wedding flowers ideas and suppliers, we also knew that we had to make the site Responsive.
Using ExpressionEngine as the tool of choice to run the website, we were able to give Eden Blooms a simple-to-use CMS for publishing and editing all their site content.
To help ASAS reach as many customers as possible, we designed and built a completely new Responsive website. To help ASAS promote their electric gates, CCTV and access control products and installation services, we have been able to include their extensive library of photos and useful (search engine friendly) content at the core of the website, to drive new customers to their site.
The website utilises the flexible power of the ExpressionEngine CMS, to run the backend database, and to empower ASAS to edit the site's content themselves. As part of a new sales and marketing drive, we designed and developed a new website for them to promote their products and services.
The key requirements were to show-off the cardboard conveyor system products and services to the world, using the latest Responsive design methods, to reach as wide an audience as possible across all Desktop and Mobile devices. We believe we've managed to create a bold, yet easy-to-use design interface, which compliments the brand, and which shows-off the products using some of the nice system installation photos. We used our favourite Content Management System (CMS) software, ExpressionEngine, to enable the website content to be fully editable by Avanti, so they can keep their existing and prospective customers up-to-date with all the latest news and product developments.
When we started Oracle Storage back in 2005 we looked at various website designers - looking at their design ideas, their CMS on offer and how their sites worked for SEO. Out of the four we looked at - of which two were from London based website designers - IC360 ticked every box for us. I can honestly say, that I don’t think our business would be the success it is now, if it wasn’t for Oli & IC360. This ecommerce website has been designed to sit alongside the other product & service focused websites by Oracle Storage. As well as enabling customers to buy products directly from the website, with an easy to use interface for the shopping basket and checkout, we have also used Responsive coding for the HTML and CSS to make sure it can be easily viewed on all devices and screen sizes.
The underlying CMS used for the site is ExpressionEngine, running the CartThrob ecommerce module. We've hosted the site on one of our own Hosting Packages and have provided the SSL Security Certificate to make sure all the customer and order data is processed and stored securely.
A brand new logo, branding and website for this brand new camping pod manufacturing business. We have designed a new logo for them to use on all their digital and printed marketing materials - as well as a Responsive website to act as their main marketing platform.

Helping the club present a stronger visual Identity in the Basingstoke area to recruit new playing members. The logo was the first step - this was created by another club member - so I was able to base the colour scheme on this. Being a Responsive site, means that anyone can easilly view it on a Desktop, Tablet or Mobile device. The site is hosted on our Linux servers and uses ExpressionEngine as the CMS (content management system). Creating a solid search engine friendly website to generate more business for this storage systems company. Shelf Space, near Brighton, East Sussex, are specialists in providing shelving and racking storage systems. This particular site focuses on their pallet racking systems, so we were able to be quite focused in terms of the site content. To make sure customers can view the site easily across all devices, we have used Responsive design & coding techniques to present a unified identity across the Desktop, Tablet and Mobile web browsers. We have employed ExpressionEngine as the content management system (CMS), which provides a very powerful and flexible backend system - and which we know our clients find very easy to use to update page content. This completely new soap retail business called for branding design as well as a new ecommerce website. We knew that most of the customers using this site would most likely be female, so we have designed it with a soft and elegant - and fun - look & feel. The site has been coded in HTML5 as a completely Responsive design, so that customers can use any device to get the best shopping experience possible. The ExpressionEngine CMS has been used to great effect on most of our customer's sites, and this one is no exception.
A rebranded Salisbury builder required a new website to generate leads and promote their work. Having undergone a comlpete rebranding, this building contractor from Salisbury, Wiltshire, required a new website.
When choosing a building for a project - whether domestic or commercial - the most important things people like to see, are previous projects and the key personnel.
By incorporating a nice photo gallery and slideshow we hope customers will be able to get a good feel for the skills on offer by Saul Bros.
The Contact page has some nice photos of the staff and there a regular Newsletters published to the site, both of which help develop a level of trust and familiarity with the company.
In parallel we've been able to design and build a Quote Request page, which links to a Job management system for their in-house day-to-day project management use. This all runs from their website hosting platform, provided by our Linux servers, so it can be accessed by any member of staff, from any location. The whole system uses ExpressionEngine at the core, which is a flexible, powerful development tool from our point of view and makes an easy-to-use interface for the company staff. Swindon plumber Kevin Rolfe, promotes his plumbing and heating services with new branding for his website, van graphics and stationery. Kevin's website has been up-and-running for a couple of years now, which has succeeded in bringing in new business enquiries, for plumbing and heating services in the Swindon area. We have just created a new, more up-to-date logo design and branding for all his marketing materials, as well as his van graphics. Over time, the site will developed and enhanced, to improve the performance on the search engines. As part of a complete rebranding for the school, we have developed a whole new website to help both staff and parents. We have been delighted to be an integral part of the Winston Way Primary School rebranding, by way for developing their new website.
Getting a new business noticed amongst other businesses is one thing, but promoting yourself as a charity is another challenge entirely.
Again, we've chosen to use ExpressionEngine as the CMS (Content Management System) which controls all the page templates and manages the site content in the database. A completely new website overhaul for the Mary Hare School for deaf children, as well as 360 Virtual Tour production. The Mary Hare School in Newbury, Berkshire, is a leading and forward looking school and sixth form for deaf children. We were asked to code and build the new website, from supplied design visuals, and implement all the required coding and functionality to give them a vastly improved web marketing platform. A large aspect of this project and the services we were able to provide, was regarding the CMS (content management system) for the website.
Design to run in parallel with a new radio advertising campaign, this website has been design to appeal to members of the public and to generate leads for the business. Boiler repair & replacement is a very competitive marketplace, so we knew the visual design of this site had to appeal to people of all ages. Additionally, although it was launched to run alongside a radio advertising campaign, we had to make sure it would provide good content for Google and the other search engines to get their teeth into. We site is running the Expression Engine CMS, to enable them to update the site content as, and when, they require.
Phil tells us all about the fun and adventures he had, while writing and recording with many famous artists and musicians.
Since 1977, Phil Spalding has written and recorded bass guitar with many famous bands and artists - and he has lots of stories to tell about the fun and adventures had by all, during those days recording and performing. This website designed specially for Phil, provides a platform for revealing some of the antics and stories which Phil and his friends & colleagues have experienced. Additionally, there is info about hiring Phil today for session work, lecturing and clinics. This website runs using the Expression Engine CMS, so Phil can edit and update the site himself.
By slightly modifying Oracle Storage's branding, we have refreshed their websites and breathed a new lease of life into their online sales & marketing.

Oracle's Primavera Risk Analysis provides a comprehensive means of determining confidence levels for project success together with quick and easy techniques for determining contingency and risk response plans.
A very productive and accurate tendering department can bring more profitable projects to a company and set the basis for increased profitability. CostOS Estimating has been designed by Nomitech with the purpose of streamlining the estimating process and providing planners with a solid basis to start building their Plans.
It blends talented people of various ages, from various sectors such as Software Developers, AEC and EPC project managers, planners and contractors with many years of experience in their field.
Even if Excel can indeed be used for this purpose (or even for planning !) this is not the proper way to move forward. Although Excel is currently the main product for cost estimating, various Cost Estimating software packages exist today, most of which are developed in the US.
Different levels of users have access to different parts of the database and cost information is shared instantly.
These databases are very useful for reference and they can be used as a basis for building a company's own database.
The fact that they are provided online is very important, because users do not have to worry whether their cost data is up to date.
In most cases the estimator hands over his estimate to the Planner, who in turn has to create the project programme starting from scratch or from a list of BOQ Items (best case scenario). Once the budget is calculated by the estimator, it is very difficult to make changes either on the schedule or on the estimate and most of the time planners and estimators get very frustrated by each other's changes.
The estimate can be exported as a resource-loaded list of activities in Primavera, with Durations, WBS codes and budgeted units ready for the planners to start putting in the logic - or the opposite: a Primavera Project can be imported in CostOS and the estimators can start working from there.
A detailed estimate of an office building (see the attached screenshot) can be finished in 45min (actual experiment).
That is a cost-loaded 3D model, which can be used for true value engineering and even for marketing purposes.
As a Contractor, the ability to build an effective schedule that everyone on your project can understand and use is crucial.
Optimized for enterprise deployments of Primavera P6 Enterprise Project Portfolio Management solution, the Primavera P6 Reporting Database provides a central repository for all portfolio and project data. Even more challenging is attempting to reconcile actual program costs with actual schedule performance.

Primavera Inspire for SAP now enables organizations running SAP to more intuitively track and manage their projects, portfolios and resources within Primavera P6.
This enables Primavera customers to combine the project, portfolio and resource management and scheduling power of Primavera P6 with the power of E-Business Suite financial management.
This enables Primavera customers to combine the project, portfolio and resource management and scheduling power of Primavera P6 with the power of JD Edwards EnterpriseOne financial management. The programme takes a new approach, designed to strategically develop two areas of your business; it provides for the personal development of key staff as well as developing a sustainable growth plan for the business itself. The programme will then assess where you would like your company to be in 3 to 5 years time and provide a detailed map of how to get there.
The programme has the overall aim of encouraging knowledge transfer within the participant group together with the use one-to-one coaching and mentoring to ensure effective transfer of ideas back into the workplace.
These include Libraries, Cafes & Bars, Veterinary practices, Offices and Retail outlets. By sub-dividing the website into relevant industry sectors, we could easily show-off the right info for each product. When people are searching for something, they will tend to search for one thing at a time, so having a whole website which focuses on a single thing will generally out-perform websites which cover numerous subjects.
This meant we were also able to create some new designs for their printed marketing materials - as well as apply the new branding to the website design. This means the code used to build the site, will re-jig the layout of the interface and content, depending on what screen size you are using, to make it present well in all circumstances.
This includes everything from key services info, gallery photos, wedding venues, blog and partner company info.
In the last couple of years Responsive websites have been the key to making websites look great and function in the same way across multiple devices - Desktops, Tablets and Mobiles.
It's central product lines are office and industrial storage products, for buying online. This software combination is extremely flexible when it comes to creating exactly what's required for the site, product management and order processing.
Having played as a member with the club for a couple of years, I was delighted to be able to offer my services to design and build a new website for them. The overall design for the website came from a need to make the club's image a little brighter and more attractive, in the hope of attracting some new members. In a bid to generate more business from natural search results, rather than relying on pay-per-click (PPC) advertising, like Google Adwords, a new search engine friendly website was called for. The thought is that the site can be re-purposed for other arms of the business, once they are ready to roll those out. As the product photos are really the main element that sell the products, we wanted to keep the overall website design clean and uncluttered. The layout and the images all resize according the screen size that the site is being viewed on.
We authored a complete User Manual for them - even though ExpressionEngine is extremely easy to use - and gave them an initial training session on how to use all the tools and features. They also offer numerous other services include courses for parents and professionals in the field of hearing loss. There are all the usual things you expect to find - information about the school policies, classes, prospectus, contact details and enquiry forms - but there are also nice touches like pupil diaries, videos and events listings.
We captured key locations around both the Primary, Secondary and Sixth Form areas of the school, across both their sites in Newbury. There are plenty of relevant and targeted key-phrases on the site - and there is plenty of room to expand as well.
More stories will be added in time, so be sure to come back soon, to check out the Music & Mayhem.
It provides a single solution for managing projects of any size, adapts to various levels of complexities within a project, and intelligently scales to meet the needs of various roles, functions, or skill levels in your organization and on your project team. It can be used to organize projects up to 100,000 activities, and it provides unlimited resources and an unlimited number of target plans. Powerful security features and a clean user interface make it the perfect solution for collaboration among all stakeholders in the organization.
Controlling your construction project's plan, budget, forecast costs, and deliverables is vital to the success of your projects and the future of your business. You'll have an objective view of required contingency to account for cost and schedule uncertainty as well as analyzing the cost effectiveness of risk response plans.
Moreover, due to its interaction with Planning Systems (especially with Oracle's Primavera), the effect of changed durations or strict milestones on the estimate can be visualised instantly. It continuously interacts with Universities and this is why it delivers highly innovative features that will become the standards for years to come.
The problem with packages developed specifically for the US is that they are based on Line Items instead of calculating costs based on the required resources.
Some of these Cost Databases, and specifically the Reeds (RS Means) Database and the Richardson also provide productivities in addition to the resources required to calculate the Cost.
Most important though, is that with a click of a button, estimates that were created in the past can be updated instantly with the new resource rates. Whichever method has been used, from there on the estimate and schedule are in line with each other. Mechanical systems can be automatically recognised by CostOS and with just two clicks the estimators can get quantities of pipes, fittings, etc. The user can click on any element on the 3D model and see the cost associated with it as well as the resources, and their cost, required to build it. Speaking at the Autodesk BIM conference, Morrell said the move follows government research that concludes that BIM offers tangible benefits to the construction industry supply chain, and value for money for the taxpayer. Oracle's Primavera Contractor allows you to continually communicate and provide accurate and up-to-date reports to the project manager as necessary throughout the project to ensure you get paid on time. Its open architecture allows users to create operational reports and business intelligence analysis using any third-party reporting tools.
Oracle's Primavera Earned Value Management is a comprehensive solution that integrates detailed cost information with the program schedule by aligning and combining project performance data from cost systems, adding complex burdening rates, and tracking committed costs. Primavera's scalability provides asset-intensive organizations with the power to manage projects of any size with varying levels of urgency. We have also allowed the Blog content to be easily Shared using some of the most popular Social Media sites. This is an expanable system, so whatever requirements they have in the future, we know we'll be able to grow the CMS to accommodate those needs on an ongoing basis. We authored a complete User Manual for them - even though Expression Engine is extremely easy to use - and give them an initial training session on how to use all the tools and features. Massive data requires sophisticated, yet highly flexible organization tools to provide you a multitude of ways to organize, filter and sort activities, projects, and resources. These combined form the basis of a "risk adjusted schedule" which today is becoming the norm within the planning and scheduling process.
Nomitech's system has been successfully applied in some major European PPP projects and in Oil and Gas projects in the Middle East.
This fact causes serious problems when trying to synchronise the estimate with the project programme, and also when trying to work with multiple currencies, or bidding in countries outside the US. The fact that these databases are also resource-related has the advantage that they can be applied internationally. Moreover, extended durations of the activities, due to various site conditions, might mean decreased productivities and thus increased cost. With one click, changes that are made in the schedule are reflected in the estimate and vice versa.
Such measurements usually require many hours of manual effort, and there is always the risk of manual mistakes. By aligning project cost, schedule, and resource requirements within Primavera's user-friendly applications with SAP's project systems and plant maintenance information, Primavera Inspire for SAP helps organizations deliver projects on-time and within budget while maximizing their resource utilization by effectively forecasting costs, schedules and resources requirements across an organizations portfolio of projects.
It is impossible to see the effect of delays or extended durations on the project total cost if the activities are not resource loaded. Estimators can amend the productivities, the salaries, the material prices, the currencies and so on and apply them in their own country and project location.
To calculate the new cost, planners must create a resource-loaded programme, and it is well known that this takes tremendous amount of time and effort, especially for large projects.
Moreover the amendments they make on the BOQ items provided by the online databases, are stored on their local database. What Nomitech has experienced from companies that use the software is that within one or two years, they no longer need to subscribe to the online databases as they have built very powerful knowledge-bases with their own cost data for projects they have worked on.
