Integrating data sources and systems involved in the creation, controlling, and communication of portfolio, project, and contract information is vital. It’s the lifeblood of an efficient, streamlined, and centralized Enterprise Projects Performance platform.

With its industry-leading integration capabilities, EcoSys maximizes efficiency, reduces data errors, and vastly increases accuracy and confidence. Whether one-way or bi-directional, typical system integrations span finance and accounting, procurement, design, scheduling, construction management and contractor time and materials tracking.

The Industry’s First Real-Time Data Integration

With EcoSys Live Connectors, experience real-time, on-demand access to data from other systems. Using industry standard formats, this leading-edge technology looks at information directly in the other system, rather than transferring it into EcoSys first. This is the kind of fast and efficient innovation you’ll find throughout the EcoSys products.

EcoSys excels at bringing previously siloed data together, giving you greater visibility into projects performance:

A Complete Picture of Your Project Ecosystem

Whether looking to bridge schedules, budgets, expenditures, commitments, timesheets, invoices, or other data, we have integrated with a multitude of systems. Typical examples include:

  • Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) and General Ledger (GL) systems: SAP, Oracle E-Business Suite, PeopleSoft, JD Edwards, Viewpoint, and others
  • Scheduling Software: Oracle Primavera P6 and Microsoft Project
  • Procurement systems including Intergraph Smart® Materials
  • Engineering systems including Intergraph Smart 3D
  • Construction Management systems including Intergraph Smart Construction
  • Document Management Software including HxGN SDx™ Projects
  • Contractor Time and Materials Systems
  • Resource Management Systems
  • Contract Management Software
  • Estimating Software
  • MS Office products and solutions including Microsoft Excel
4 Primary Integration Methods

In concert with the overarching design philosophy of EcoSys providing users with flexible, configurable, and automated solutions, data can be integrated using 4 primary methods, with no custom software development required.

  • Pre-Built Adaptors: Quickly create and implement integration processes with SAP and Oracle P6 using certified EcoSys adaptors.
  • EcoSys Live Connectors:The Industry’s first true real-time, on-demand integration technology, providing views into any external source via compliant web services.
  • EcoSys Web Services API: Create data integration points with any compatible 3rd party solution. Includes a high-performance integration gateway to automate transfer of data and events.
  • File-Based Data Imports: Easily import data from Excel spreadsheets, delimited text files, as well as XML, HTML. Export to PDFs as well.
Standard Integrations for Trust and Simplicity

Integration doesn’t need to be difficult. To simplify the process, EcoSys offers bi-directional adapters to two of our most common integration points, formally evaluated and approved by those vendors:

  • Oracle Primavera P6 (Oracle Validated Integration) – Integrate schedules, resource plans/dates, progress/percent complete, or synchronize enterprise coding structures. EcoSys also provides the ability to visualize a P6 schedule without the need for a P6 license.
  • SAP Enterprise Resource Planning (Certified Integration) – exchange project WBS, expenditures, commitments, invoices, budgets, forecasts, timesheets, and more.

The Evolution of Progress Measurement: Powered by Digital Transformation

Imagine eliminating 85% of the work involved with measuring progress. Then imagine that the information reported is objective and measurable – no longer based on lifting a finger to the wind – resulting in faster, more accurate forecasts. That’s the benefit of a data-centric approach powered by the integration of EcoSys and Hexagon PPM’s industry leading products for procurement (Intergraph Smart® Materials), fabrication and construction (Intergraph Smart Construction), 3D Design (Intergraph Smart 3D) and document management (HxGN SDx™ Projects).
