Microsoft Project add-ins for Project Execution Management (PEM) and Project Financial Management (P
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:-
- 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.
