PRESS RELEASES AND ADDITIONAL NEWS
APRIL 2017 – With the retirement from active support, many firms who have been using Primavera Contract Management (PCM) are shifting to other packages to manage projects. While companies can continue to use PCM, many are choosing to shift to another software tool to maintain current support for updates and changes in technology. Oracle’s tool identified as this replacement, for example, is Unifier. For most products, there is no simple data migration strategy, and so the question comes up as to how to maintain historical data without continuing to maintain the older system (PCM) permanently. This document illustrates a method of programmatically extracting PCM data into PDF format and maintaining these documents for archival purposes. To download the white paper click HERE.
