MS-Project or Primavera – which project management software is more popular?

by Multisoft Systems education

Today, throughout this article, we will be talking about the positives and negatives of two globally popular project management software products – MS Project and Primavera P6. Designed, developed, and marketed by Microsoft, Microsoft Project is a project management software product that helps the project managers in assigning resources to tasks, developing schedules, tracking progresses, managing budgets, and analyzing workloads. Primavera is another enterprise project portfolio management software which was acquired by Oracle Corporation.


MS-Project supports eleven baselines, but the Primavera software is designed to support unlimited numbers of baselines. If you are a Primavera user, you can easily convert the support information like documentation and planning into HTML directly from the software, but the MS-Project is not blessed with a feature that can convert data from one format to another. Many more things are there that make Primavera different from MS-Project. Here we go with some of the key differences and, hence, we will be talking about the availability of Primavera training in India.


  • MS-Project doesn’t allow the users to track risks and issues, but Primavera does.
  • MS-Project doesn’t enable many users to work on a single platform, but Primavera does.
  • Primavera breaks the main activity into sub-activities. The sub-activities that are blessed with start dates and finish dates make the user’s job pretty easier.
  • The users of Primavera can sort by date and activity ID, whereas the MS-Project can move the individual activities to the positions where the users want to display them.


Primavera allows the users to create blank custom fields, but it does not configure any formula for those fields. So, the users of Primavera are supposed to set the formulas in the blank fields manually. MS-Project is a better option in this regard. It allows users to create blank custom fields with values and formulas. In India, the Primavera is getting more popular among these two. To cope with the ever-increasing popularity, training institutes are coming forward to provide the Oracle Primavera training course. If you are an MS Project user, you can easily incorporate the use of Primavera software in your process. Many authorized training partners of Oracle are there in Delhi or nearby cities; you can prefer any of them as per your convenience. If we had to suggest a name, we must have recommended the Multisoft Systems. It is not only providing up-to-the-dated course modules for the participants but also ensuring the most conducive learning environment.
