Primavera Unveils Project-Management Software

Primavera Systems Inc. released a project-management software suite yesterday that lets application development managers better track and manage development projects.

The Bala Cynwyd, Pa., company's TeamPlay software includes a Web collaboration and feedback tool that lets managers delegate assignments and keep track of project status. IT employees can view project information such as documentation, and send feedback to managers on time estimations as well as project problems and solutions. They can also indicate how much of the work has been completed and how many hours have been spent on a particular project.

The software keeps a skills-assessment database, which lets an IT manager view employee IT skills to match those people with appropriate assignments. The Project Website lets managers post project details, including reports and documents, to an intranet. TeamPlay includes best practices methodologies and the ability to customize them. Managers also can write their own methodologies.

Project managers are able to perform risk and impact analysis. They can assign a probability to problem occurrences and then simulate the schedule, resource, and cost impact of those problems.

The software works with Microsoft and Oracle relational databases. The company would not release pricing information.
