What is Primavera P6?

Over the years, the demand for accurate and reliable planning has increased. Project Teams are feeling the pressure of having to execute well. Projects can be reactive with ever changing design and scope. Businesses are wanting to be proactive and have projects delivered efficiently. Executives want more project visibility while distributed teams desire a more round-the-clock collaboration. This means that the project and program managers of today need a tool that can deliver an accurate project insight to help them reach their budget and schedule commitments.

This is where Primavera P6 comes in. Primavera P6 allows project-driven organisations to better manage their projects and programs ranging from small and simple to large-scale and complex. It helps you make smarter portfolio management decisions by providing real-time, end-to-end visibility across all relevant information. This makes it easier for you to determine if you have the adequate staff members and resources to accomplish the work.

With this tool, you can thoroughly evaluate the risks and rewards associated with a specific project or program. It gives you the collaboration, project management, and control capabilities to successfully deliver projects on time, on budget, and within the desired quality and design. Thanks to its flexible integration capabilities, you can interoperate across the entire enterprise with ease. Primavera has two different versions of its software suite that both offer project management, resource management, and scheduling functionalities. These are:

  • Primavera P6 Enterprise Project Portfolio Management (P6 EPPM) – P6 EPPM is known as the web version of Primavera P6. It offers complete functionality of the software and is geared towards larger organizations where the planning and admin work are conducted via a web browser. P6 EPPM is also compatible across Android and iOS devices, making it more flexible than its P6 PPM counterpart.
  • Primavera P6 Professional Project Management (P6 PPM)P6 PPM is known as the desktop/client version of Primavera P6 where the planning and admin work are done via a Windows-based laptop. It consists of the Primavera P6 professional client which is installed into your PC locally and connects to a database. 

The main difference is that P6 EPPM is a web-based software while the P6 PPM is a stand-alone app that you load on your PC/laptop. In terms of functionality, they offer similar features, with P6 EPPM being favoured by IT departments for easier distribution while the P6 PPM being favoured by power users due to its responsiveness and stability.
