How to deploy Project Performance Reporting within Oracle Projects - Successfully

E-Business Suite Releases 11i10 FP-M RUP4 to 12.1.2

Abstract
One of the biggest challenges faced by the uptake of Oracle Projects Family Pack M has been that of the Project Performance Reporting area. Customers who were at the forefront of deploying Oracle Projects Family Pack M were able to identify the issues for the Oracle Development team to address rapidly and though concern within this area is still abundant significant improvements have led to a smoother uptake. Project Performance Reporting is the flagship functionality within the Oracle Proejcts Family Pack M release enabling robust and integrated reporting across a project and program. The key to deploying the functionality is to understand its capability, system requirement, processing need and configuration options.

Managing a Portfolio of Projects within Oracle Projects

E-Business Suite Releases 11i10 FP-M RUP4 to 12.1.2

Abstract
One of the major phases of any project centric organization is its ability to select the right set of projects to pursue. Whilst this may seem relatively straight forward, there are many factors that influence which projects actually get selected and approved. For example, strategic corporate wide initiatives may be driving a set of key goals down through the company, this may well need to be balanced with organizational or customer driven intiatives adding to the complexity. Project Portfolio Analysis delivered through Oracle Projects Family Pack M is a new HTML based product that facilitates the optimum mix of selected projects to meet a set of objectives. Integrated with the Oracle Projects Suite, it facilitates the collection of projects and ranking those against a set of objectives. Furthermore, by creating multiple scenarios you can fine tune or find the most optimum set of projects that will provide you with the maximum return on your investment.

Project Analytics and Project Reporting beyond Oracle Projects Family Pack M

E-Business Suite Releases 11i10 FP-M RUP4 to 12.1.2

Abstract
Since the release of Oracle Projects Family Pack M and Oracle's string of acquisitions there has been much confusion surrounding which reporting path to follow for Projects centric organizations. Project Status Inquiry, Project Performance Reporting, Project Analytics, Discoverer EUL's, Project Status Reporting, Project Managers Reporting Pack etc are just a few of the options that are currently available. Each reporting solution offers specific capability that can be targeted to the appropriate project member and understanding that is vital to deploy the right solution. Whilst one can argue that each customer has specific reporting needs, make no mistake that even a custom report needs to pull information from a specific database view which is delivered ultimately by an Oracle Projects reporting solution.

Techniques for Managing Risks within Project Centric Organizations.

E-Business Suite Releases 11i10 FP-M RUP4 to 12.1.2 and Rysigo's Collborative Project Risk Mgt software.

Abstract
There are many reasons for the need to effectively manage project risk and organizations like the Project Management Institute provide a good foundation on understanding this area. However, in today's global economy there has been an increase in what I will call “Structured Work”. Not everyone realizes that the work they undertake can be modeled as a project, in fact, any work that we undertake will generally require resource(s), has a scope and a timeline but the mere mention of the word “Project” to some, suggests a paradigm shift thats frowned upon through fear. Since the technological advances of the 1980's, corporate complexity, the rise of globalization have all had a part to play in increasing operational challenges. Project teams no longer consist of just the project manager and the immediate team, but can consist of back office staff responsible for project administrative and accounting functions, vendors who may supply materials or services, partners and of course the customer. To add to this complexity, project teams no longer reside within the same office space, but can span multiple locations and even continents - each of these challenges can increase 'hidden' risk on a project.
