Leaders Circle

Retail Summit Sponsored by IBM

Enabling Commerce Anywhere for Profitable Growth

Learn about retail solutions that can help you create a seamless, connected, and holistic approach to fulfilling consumer demand across all channels.

Consumers are savvier and more connected than ever before—technology has raised expectations and influences what they buy and where they shop. More than ever the customer is in charge, with expectations of transacting business anywhere, and assuming that most commercial interactions will be personalized to their individual preferences.

Retail leaders are faced with the opportunity and challenge to keep up with the speed of innovation and the evolution of technology. Oracle Retail is uniquely positioned to create opportunities for technology to drive growth, enhance the retail experience, and benefit both the consumer and the business through experience retailing. Experience retailing is personal, convenient, and local. It involves aligning the entire business to deliver products and services that are appropriate to your consumers each and every time.
