A typical Oracle Primavera product implementation lead by Ingeniva comprises…
- innovative solution design
- software installation, configuration and customisation
- integration and interface development
Oracle Primavera tools are not “plug ‘n’ play” software products, and successful deployments require in-depth product knowledge and competence. The expertise of our specialists has been assessed by Oracle, resulting in Ingeniva achieving Oracle Primavera P6 EPPM and Oracle Cloud Specialisations.
Our certified Oracle Primavera specialists have evolved a proven approach that draws from their experiences of deploying Oracle Primavera products in many organisations across a variety of industries.
Broadly, this comprises six steps which we tailor to suit your needs and minimise risk…
- Discovery. We gather and analyse information about implementation objectives and scope, success criteria, resources, constraints, processes, interfaces and change impact.
- Solution Design. We produce, and agree with you, a design specification covering software installation, product configuration and customisation, data structures, performance reporting, operational procedures and interfaces with other systems.
- Build. We complete software server installation and construct and test customised prototype solutions, often adopting an agile approach and comprising a series of ‘sprints’, that conform to the design specification, using your data.
- Pilot Trial. We conduct a user acceptance trial using a representative subset of your production data and mix of your users, and assess process fit.
- Deployment. We extend the pilot trial to encompass all users, including installing software on client PCs, comprehensive training, data migration and ‘go live’ support.
- Closure. We review the implementation programme with you to confirm that all objectives have been achieved, success criteria have been met and to identify further requirements
