"Enterprise project portfolio management is moving to the forefront of business strategy for industries that are managing complex and capital intensive projects," Oracle president Charles Phillips said in a statement announcing the acquisition. Primavera CEO Joel Koppelman said Primavera will become a global business unit of Oracle, continuing to function as a developer of project management software products.
