Introduction to the Oracle Retail Documentation Blog

Welcome! This blog is designed to help retailers and partners receive regular updates about documentation releases at Oracle Retail.

The Documentation Department

The Oracle Retail Documentation department delivers documentation for the Oracle Retail product suite. The members of the department ensure that documents are released in conjunction with development-driven project schedules.

The Types of Documents Available

In addition to designing, developing, and implementing documentation standards, the members of the team work with development subject matter experts (SME) to generate the following end-user documents and more: Release Notes, Online Help, User Guides, Installation Guides, Implementation Guides, Operation Guides, and White Papers. The team is also responsible for archiving all of its documentation and publishing it to the Oracle community via the Oracle Technology Network (OTN) and My Oracle Support (MOS).

Announcing An Improved Oracle Retail Site on OTN 

Recent improvements make it much easier to navigate the Oracle Retail documentation site on the Oracle Technology Network (OTN) at this location: http://www.oracle.com/technology/documentation/oracle_retail.html
New tabs help users find documentation for a specific application quickly and easily. Each tab represents a unique enterprise release, and contains an alphabetic listing of documentation libraries available. Another tab provides direct links to some of the most-read Oracle Retail enterprise-level technical documentation available on My Oracle Support. Finally, the site includes the new Oracle Retail Documentation Welcome Kit, which is available for download on the Get Started tab.
