In August 2016, Oracle announced that it was discontinuing any further product releases or patches for Primavera Contract Manager (PCM). At the same time, ongoing “Sustaining Support” was confirmed on an indefinite basis – i.e. technical support for owners of PCM will be provided until further notice. Options for existing PCM owners therefore include:
- Continuing with the system (which will require some close management, given that new patches and alterations to external programs such as Java and Windows could impact PCM operation)
- Migrating to Oracle Unifier – there being options to facilitate this such as Oracle’s Contract Management Cloud Accelerator
- Migrating to an alternative system for the management of Contracts and other project-related functions.
Owners should consult with Oracle or a member of the Oracle Partner Network in relation to Options 1 and 2 above.
As part of analysing the cost/benefit of any new Contract Management system, an important component of cost (and time) is data migration. Our organisation has extensive experience in data migration from other systems into PMWeb and can provide advice on liklely cost. We have also now released two standard packages for migrating data from PCM V13.x and 14.x to PMWeb. This provides a ready reference for clients conducting comparative analysis and a tool to examine whether there are factors in their existing system that could make a migration non-standard (whether to PMWeb or to any other system).
