Oracle OpenWorld 2012 Preview: Don't-Miss Oracle Retail Sessions

With 14 planned sessions focusing on Oracle Retail, Oracle OpenWorld 2012—taking place in San Francisco from September 30 to October 4—is expected to provide unprecedented insight into Oracle Retail solutions.

Oracle Retail is focusing this year's agenda around enabling “Your Experience Platform”—the ability to deliver on the retailer's brand promise and drive profitable growth through seamless cross-channel experiences—using the full Oracle footprint. To achieve these goals, retailers must
  • Connect interactions. Retailers must connect customer interactions seamlessly across all channels and touch points.
  • Gain actionable insights. Retailers must drive smarter decisions by connecting siloed sources of data—and by embedding retail science and business intelligence directly into business processes.
  • Optimize operations. Retailers must align every aspect of the business to gain efficiencies and economies.
Peer-to-Peer Sharing
In addition to organized sessions, conference attendees consistently report how much value they get from meeting peers to share experiences and best practices. In response, Oracle Retail will once again host the Retail Lounge at San Francisco's renowned Palace Hotel.

Don't Miss Sessions

  • Transforming the Customer Experience (session ID: CON9689)

  • Enhancing Human Resources through Talent Management (session ID: CON9673)
