SUPERVALU, established in 1870, operates in two complementary and interrelated industries—grocery retailing and food logistics. The national grocery retailer and wholesaler has more than 2,200 corporate-owned stores and approximately 2,500 independent franchises. Its stores primarily sell perishable and nonperishable grocery items, general merchandise, health and beauty care products, fuel, and pharmacy products.
SUPERVALU is also one of the largest food distributors in the country, serving more than 4,300 retail end points via its supply chain and support services. SUPERVALU’s services include sourcing, invoicing, and payment services between its independent retailers and vendors.
Continuing its long-standing partnership with Oracle which began in 2002, SUPERVALU selected Oracle Identity Management 11g Release 2 to deliver the powerful security it required to leverage social, mobile, and cloud technologies. It also appreciated that the system was easy to use and maintain.
“Oracle has invested heavily in the identity and access management space in recent years. The result is a best-of-breed solution set that is constantly upgraded with advanced functionality and is increasingly easy to use. Moving to Oracle Identity Management 11g Release 2 from our existing Sun infrastructure was an easy decision,” said Phillip Black, IT director for identity and access management, SUPERVALU.
