Oracle Retail Product Overviews

In order to better enable and educate retailers and partners, the Oracle Retail Curriculum team, in partnership with Oracle Retail Product teams and Customer Support, have published Oracle Retail Product Overviews to My Oracle Support. Product Overviews are high-level recordings that highlight the business use, features and benefits of Oracle Retail Products, Release 13.X. The Product Overviews also include a short demonstration of the product that they reference, in order to introduce you to key functionality and the user interface (UI). Recordings are each less than one hour long and are intended as a stand-alone, self-paced introduction. 

More in-depth training is available via Oracle University.

Navigating to Release Readiness Transfer of Information (TOI) Recordings

TOI  recordings about new features in Oracle Retail applications are available to Oracle-supported customers for the 13.x enterprise releases. Oracle Retail has released over 100 of these TOIs since Oracle Retail began producing them.

These online courses provide release-specific product knowledge that enables your functional and technical teams to plan, implement and/or upgrade and support Oracle Retail applications effectively and efficiently. TOI training is delivered via Oracle University. Note that you may be prompted to log in to Oracle University the first time you view the recorded training.

Product-based TOIs

Oracle Retail application TOIs are divided into two categories: Functional and Technical. Examples include:

  • Oracle Retail Merchandising System (RMS) Functional Overview
  • Oracle Retail Predictive Application Server (RPAS) Platform Technical Overview
