Primavera® launches new solution for integration of project management and SAP®

PHILADELPHIA, PA, May 10, 2007 – Primavera Systems, I nc., today announced the immediate availability of Primavera Inspire, a solution that enables the easy exchange of information between Primavera and SAP. Primavera acquired the underlying technology, which is built on SAP’s current NetWeaver platform and uses SAP’s Exchange Infrastructure for data transition, from Larsen & Toubro Infotech (LTI), one of the world’s leading SAP integrators .

Terms of the transaction were not disclosed. Primavera will further enlarge and advance Primavera Inspire with both its own development teams and the engineers at LTI who originally developed the technology. In addition, LTI will continue to implement and integrate combined SAP and Primavera solutions using Primavera Inspire.

By tightly integrating data in their SAP ERP Systems with Primavera’s project and resource management solutions, SAP users will have visibility into key project milestones and deadlines. With Primavera Inspire, project participants working in either SAP or Primavera can make important decisions with confidence, because project data will be aligned no matter which system they use, enabling accurate forecasts.

By using Primavera Inspire, customers gain:

Improved collaboration between corporate, remote sites, and all participants;

Reliable and consistent reporting of project performance parameters;

Consistency and integrity of project management data across systems;

Dashboard management views of project performance.

“Customers who have standardized on SAP and Primavera can now rely on Primavera to serve as the single point of contact for integration between the two,” said Dick Faris, executive vice president at Primavera. “With Primavera Inspire, companies can easily exchange data between Primavera and SAP, which improves an organization’s ability to assess risk and solve potential cost, schedule and resource issues before they become insurmountable problems.”

“This deal brings customers the best of both worlds,” said Sudhindra Badami, vice president and global director of Larsen & Toubro Infotech’s SAP Practice. “Primavera will bring its unparalleled project management expertise and reputation for world-class customer service, while Larsen & Toubro Infotech will continue to bring its experience in SAP system integration. As a result of this deal, customers will have access to a solution that gives them a robust view of how projects are proceeding from both a cost and schedule perspective and how they tie into the overall corporate strategy from either SAP or Primavera.”
