Primavera is not organization specific and it is currently being used in banking IT, healthcare,defence and government so it is suitable for any industry running a project or program. Primavera P6 Professional is a standalone project scheduling solution that is installed on individual users’ systems.

Primavera P6 EPPM is a true enterprise solution. It is fully web-based, so it runs in a browser and connects to a webserver that serves-up a visually-rich interface. The web server also connects to a main database where all of your project information is stored. This database can be Oracle or Microsoft SQL Server, which most major industries have standardized on already. Therefore it doesn’t have to be individually installed on employees’ systems.
