History

Emerald Associates is a Canadian company headquartered in Calgary, Alberta, with dedicated project professionals in North America, South America and Asia. Since 1995, our mission has been to deliver client success through the innovative implementation of Oracle Primavera software and Oracle hardware solutions. Our team is privileged to work with clients on all continents and in a wide variety of industries such as Oil & Gas, Nuclear, Health Care, Infrastructure, Software Development, Pharmaceutical, Electrical Power Generation and Distribution, Rail and Aviation. 

From day one, Emerald's founding core team of engineers and programmers knew there was a better way to do things, and automation was the key to improved project delivery. Over 20 years later, and a number of conversions, integrations, automations, and data warehousing implementations completed, we have built an arsenal of productivity tools to optimize the Oracle Primavera Suite.

 

Our Primavera add-ons:

  • Automate data loading from Excel

  • Streamline risk register development and ongoing mitigation processes

  • Eliminate tedious progress updating

  • Simplify data snapshotting and self-serve reporting

  • Provide quality self-critiquing feedback

  • Auto-calculate KPI metrics and exception handling

  • Provide big data auditing

  • Provide archiving and consolidation in real-time

 

With our add-on tools Primavera solutions are easier for your team to adopt, faster to deploy and cheaper to administer including:

 

Extended teams working on Shutdowns, Turnarounds and Outages (STOs), Capital Programs, or Maintenance and Project Sustainability see measurable return on investment within days of deployment. Our focus on innovation has made Emerald Associates the first to officially publish a Primavera Cloud Application on the Oracle Cloud Marketplace, the one-stop shop for Oracle customers seeking trusted business applications and service providers.


Even with our focus on automation and technology, Emerald does not compromise on developing and delivering world class Primavera training. We are Oracle University Certified and a Registered Education Provider through the Project Management Institute (PMI). We have trained and certified over 8,000 students in many countries and languages. To ensure adoption and self-sufficiency we deliver training and coaching in many forms including classroom training, online and-face-to-face user group workshops, self-serve inline UPK materials, educational gaming and user coaching.

Finally, Emerald's technical team brings our clients the best user experience with our Oracle Red Stack expertise. We understand that “one size does not fit all” so we are certified in Oracle Engineered Systems and Cloud deployments. For on-premise deployments the Oracle Database Appliance (ODA) or Private Cloud Appliance (PCA) are Engineered Systems with extreme performance. For cloud-based deployments options include software as a service (SaaS), platform as a service (PaaS), infrastructure as a service (IaaS), or data as a service (DaaS). With Emerald's flexible productivity offerings and array of deployment options, our solutions are tailored to the client. Our Oracle Cloud Standard designation and Red Stack certifications ensure you have a full service partner delivering project success today and into the future.
