“I got trained for Primavera P6 PPM through Compass Consult. Honestly, the things that got me in were their competitive pricing and payment plans in offer. The thing that I highly admire about the training is that it is a very practical, hands-on training wherein you can learn while working on your own project. The trainers are highly experienced and fundamentally strong. I would strongly recommend the training to someone who needs hands-on experience in P6.”
Primavera P6 Enterprise Project Portfolio Management or P6 Professional Project Management: Which to choose?
Discover the notable differences between the two project management software to decide which platform is right for your business.
P6 EPPM vs. P6 PPM: How are they different?
The Primavera P6 Enterprise Project Portfolio Management (P6 EPPM) offers large-scale enterprise solutions for planning, managing and executing projects. It can handle projects of various complexities and sizes.
Primavera P6 Professional Project Management (P6 PPM), on the other hand, is more suitable for standalone, less complex projects that do not require extensive collaboration and integration.
So, whether a business should invest in either the P6 EPPM or P6 PPM will depend on the size of their teams, project requirements, and other factors. Making the right choice will help improve workforce productivity and maximise ROI.
4 notable differences between P6 EPPM and P6 PPM
Deployment and access
The P6 PPM is an on-premise project management solution as it is only available as a desktop application. On the other hand, P6 EPPM can be accessed remotely or on-premise as it is web-based. This allows multiple teams to access the platform anytime and from anywhere.
P6 PPM allows only project managers and schedulers to use the platform. P6 EPPM accommodates a broader range of users, including executives, project managers, portfolio managers, team members and other stakeholders, to access, collaborate and manage multiple projects.
P6 PPM offers limited project management capabilities, such as creating project schedules and tracking progress. P6 EPPM, on the other hand, offers a more comprehensive suite of project management features that allow users to prioritise, select and optimise complex projects.
Integration and collaboration
P6 PPM has limited collaboration features at the project level, and users need additional tools to manage projects. P6 EPPM can be integrated with other enterprise systems and encourages sharing the workload by supporting multi-user collaboration within and across projects.

"Compass has bent over backwards to meet the needs of WBHO. They have been patient as we went through the process of reviewing and approving the equipment. Equipment was then delivered promptly to the location we requested. The project does not start until the new year, but given the excellent service thus far, I am highly confident it will not have any issues with the network connectivity setup."
"The training session led by Sam was very interactive and informative. The sessions were easy to follow despite having no previous experience with P6. I enjoyed completing all the exercises used to help teach us the software's capabilities, and props for using relatable industry examples. Thanks for a great training session!"
Oracle has recently merged P6 EPPM and P6 PPM, meaning you can no longer buy PPM if you don’t already have a licence. That said, P6 EPPM offers all the features found in PPM.
The implementation duration will depend on the complexity of your projects, the modules you require and other integration requirements. It’s advisable to get in touch with a trusted implementation partner to learn more about P6 EPPM implementation.
Should your project involve more than one department and you are running multiple projects concurrently, we recommend choosing Primavera P6 Enterprise Project Portfolio Management to oversee and manage your projects more effectively and use your resources more efficiently.
