Another prompt today. Oracle is devoting two full days and 70 sessions at the upcoming OpenWorld conference to its Primavera PPM (project portfolio management) software, which is used to track and manage the torrent of people, assets, timelines and expenses associated with projects and services engagements.
For me, this is clear message about Oracle’s long term strategy related to PPM, and it will wave into other enterprise application Oracle keeps in the portfolio. PLM is one of them. So, I’d expect impact on long term Oracle PLM strategy too.
Don’t forget Siemens PLM announcement two months ago with regards to their OEM plans with Planview.
So, how do you see PLM and PPM strategy? Do you think enterprise PLM and ERP vendors will try to deliver more PPM business functions adjusted to their PLM Offering and create wide business process coverage between PLM and PPM?
