About the Customer

Alectra Utilities is shaping the future of energy as we know it. Alectra Utilities is writing the next chapter in the changing face of energy in Ontario based on its strong legacy from the past. Alectra is are moving forward - as one organization - to provide safe, reliable and innovative energy solutions to families and businesses across the Greater Golden Horseshoe area.

Scope and Challenges

Alectra Utilities Corp., which was formed by the 2017 merger of four energy companies and now ranks as the second-largest municipally owned electric utility in North America is moving critical business functions to the cloud to improve operational efficiency and project delivery. The Canadian utility relies on Oracle’s Primavera P6 Enterprise Project Portfolio Management running in Oracle’s cloud environment to manage its enterprise project portfolio management activities.

Zoran Dabic, Alectra’s Director of Program Delivery, discussed the benefits his organization realizes from using Primavera P6 EPPM in the cloud during a presentation at the recent Oracle Industry Connect 2017.

In the run-up to the merger, Alectra’s leadership realized they’d be seeing a dramatic increase in projects - from about 500 to more than 2,000 per year - after the combination. They also understood that the combined organization’s internal IT wouldn’t have the resources to deploy and manage a traditional on-premise EPPM solution that could serve the larger user base.

Outcome and Implications

Using Primavera P6 EPPM in the cloud offered a range of benefits that would address these and other challenges. To handle the increased demands on Alectra’s project controls office, the cloud solution offered new capabilities, such as P6 Team Member for mobile devices and Primavera Analytics for advanced program management. Alectra staff simply turn on these capabilities as needed in the cloud, rather than having to implement them over several months, as would have been the case with an on-premise solution, Dabic says.

Enhanced analytics has been one of the biggest payoffs from moving to Primavera P6 EPPM in the cloud, he reports. Financial managers can now better utilize assets thanks to a clearer understanding of how many projects are in the pipeline and their status. In addition, supply chain managers can ensure they have the right parts in the right places at the right times, which reduces inventory costs.


“Analytics takes the application to the next level and provides substantial incremental value. For us going into a large merger, that tool alone really brought this solution to the forefront for us.” Said - Zoran Dabic, Director of Program Delivery at Alectra.
