Oracle acquires Primavera – good for OBIEE

This is a post for fellow OBIEE consultants with an interest in Oracle’s acquisitions. Today, I received a letter where Oracle announced they’re acquiring Primavera. This is a very curious news. According to the letter – Primavera is a recognized leading choice for mission critical PPM solutions and helps more than 5,000 global customers and over 2.5 million users propose, prioritize, select, plan, manage, and control complex projects. The interesting thing is that the Project Portfolio Management solution that they’re offering could be replaced with Oracle’s BI Suite. I think Oracle made this acquisution for customer base, not for the product itself. I preditct that they will support Primavera’s products for a few years, but slowly persuade clients to switch to OBIEE. This might mean more projects for us in the future as well as a broader OBIEE installation base.
