P6 Enterprise Project Portfolio Management vs P6 Professional


P6 EPPM provides the most powerful, robust, and easy-to-use solution for globally prioritizing, planning, managing, and executing projects, programs, and portfolios in asset-intensive industries.

In my opinion, these are some of the differences in the web…

  • It’s a web-based application so you’ll need good connectivity.
    Use of web-based tools and the administration of users and access. 
  • You can use resource analysis, portfolios with interactive portlets, and other areas to graph/chart project details and resource usage.
  • Timekeeper approval interfaced with team member.
  • May be more difficult for long time client users to get used to as the UI is web-based, but it does mimic the client and you can do the same types of things as far as updating projects.


P6 Professional

P6 Professional is a comprehensive, multi-project planning and control software, built on Oracle and Microsoft SQL Server relational databases for enterprise-wide project management scalability. It can stand alone for project and resource management, and it enables your organization to store and manage its projects in a central location. The module supports work breakdown structures (WBS), organizational breakdown structures (OBS), user-defined fields and codes, critical-path-method (CPM) scheduling, and resource leveling.

In my opinion, these are some of the differences in the P6 Pro…

  • It’s locally installed on a user’s terminal and connects to the cloud database.
  • You will need good connectivity unless you are using the offline mode.
  • Long time schedulers are more familiar with the look and feel of the professional as it has not had many aesthetic changes over the years.
  • Connects via Secure Global Desktop (SGD). I can provide you with more information.
