Oracle Rolls Out Another Business Intelligence App

Updated: May 13, 2009

The company claims OPA delivers role-based intelligence targeted at project executives, project and program managers to help track project/program performance and control project costs; take action to improve project portfolio performance; and provide insight into project revenue, billing and profitability.

To help jumpstart your project analysis efforts, the new app features several fancy dashboards. Project Executive provides an organizational view with the visibility and control necessary to monitor organizational performance and the health of projects across the board to improve profitability and improve operating efficiency. Project Management provides a complete view of project performance from a high-level summary of accumulated and trending information for single or group projects down to cost, revenue, and budget transaction details. And, last but not least, Public Sector is designed for the public sector (duh!) and other organizations not reliant on profitability and margin tracking. It's fully integrated with Oracle's Financial Analytics module that provides organizations with fact-based and timely insight into their operational budgets and funds management.

Other tasks you can take care of with OPA include: making more timely decisions across the project organization; identifying at-risk projects so you can initiate corrective measures; maximize cash flow with increased insight into payable, commitments, and billings; and control your budgets and costs before they affect project profitability.
