Oracle Retail business process flows

The Oracle Retail business process flows component of the Retail Reference Model has hundreds of established industry-leading business processes to help guide your retail business and implementation teams on the use of Oracle applications.

The business process flows bring together the input and experience that Oracle Retail and our partners have gained in working with a broad range of retail customers. The processes align with Oracle applications, leverage industry standards, and help business units communicate with IT.

The business process flows are built and maintained in Microsoft Visio but can be imported to other modeling tools to read a Visio file format.

Oracle Retail technical models

The Oracle Retail technical models are a collection of process flows that describe Oracle Retail solutions. These views help implementers understand how Oracle Retail solutions fit together.

The models include Oracle Retail’s solution suite overview, as well as integration perspectives by function and by solution domain.

Oracle Retail glossary

The Oracle Retail glossary contains a broad range of entries to help your teams understand retail terms and definitions, calculations, synonyms, and context.

Adoption of these common terms will help align departments and provide consistency. The Oracle Retail glossary is provided in HTML and Excel so your retail team can quickly access content, get release updates, and customize projects based on your specific requirements.
