Primavera finally kills P3 and Suretrak

Construction Project Controls and BIM Report published an article “Primavera P3 and Suretrak Sales to Cease December 31, 2010” recently about Oracle finally killing P3 and Suretrak. Even though many in the industry have been expecting this for years this practice of killing off legacy products has a major impact on the users.

The good news is that this practice of forcing customers to upgrade by killing products is no longer the only option customers have when choosing a vendor. With companies delivering Software As A Service (SAAS) the product is continuously improved over time so you always have a current version and never have to worry about the product being discontinued because a newer one is available.

Delivering the software as a service eliminates the painful/expensive upgrade/migration process, license upgrade fees, and the potential risk of the product not being supported anymore. These newer applications are also easier to use, come with better support and all at a fraction of the cost of the older enterprise solutions.

Today’s construction project management software delivered via the SAAS model improve collaboration and act as a trusted third power providing even greater value over legacy enterprise software solutions.
