I'd like to know if anyone is using the Microsoft Project add-in for Project Execution Management (PEM) or Project Financial Management (PFM) in a live Oracle ERP Cloud instance?

If so, what are your experiences / thoughts? Specifically:-

  • What challenges/issues did you have during implementation?
  • Did any concessions need to be made with respect to existing business processes, and if so, what were they?
  • What do users think of the experience?

Regarding my own experiences, neither add-in has met the needs of my current and previous project requirements. There are a few common sticking points:-

  1. We intend to carry on using Microsoft Project as our primary planning tool. That really rules out both the use of the MSP add-in for PEM as well as PEM itself. This is due to the fact that the MSP add-in for PEM is one-way/one time only i.e. it doesn't allow plans to be synchronised between MSP and PEM on an ongoing basis.

Howdy, Stranger!
