Oracle Retail Reference Library, Release 14.1

The Oracle Retail Reference Library (RRL) is a collection of detailed implementation information for partners and retailers, including business process models, architectural diagrams, and a retail glossary. The RRL contains deep retail intellectual property that can help retailers accelerate their implementations and derive maximum value from Oracle Retail software. The RRL is available on My Oracle Support (MOS) at the numbers below.

Oracle Retail Reference Library (Doc ID 1617507.1,
Patch Number 19988589)

RRL consists of the following components:

  • The Retail Reference Model (RRM) is a comprehensive collection of established, industry leading business processes which guide retailers and implementers on the use of Oracle Retail applications. RRM is based on the input and experience that Oracle Retail and their 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 Information Technology (IT). Process flows are created in Microsoft Visio to enable retailer-specific business processes to be managed and maintained.
  • The Retail Reference Architecture (RRA) describes various views of Oracle Retail’s solution offerings, including contextual models, integration models, and deployment models. Those implementing Oracle Retail’s products will find RRA a useful starting point in understanding how enterprise systems fit together. It is meant to convey information to a broad audience, from IT executives to development staff. The ability to know context around a particular component in a system and understand where the system plays a part in the enterprise is essential when making decisions about customization and deployment options.
  • The Retail Semantic Glossary (RSG) provides a single source for defining terms, metrics, and measures used by retailers. Users can search for terms in order to understand their definition, calculation, synonyms, and context thus helping to align departments and provide consistency. The full installation of RSG also enables users to customize the glossary by adding, editing, or deleting content.

Simplified Installation Process

Each component, RRM, RRA, and RSG, is now available in a separate zip file. The zip files can be installed in any order. A full installation of RRL is also available. For more information on installation, see the Oracle Retail Reference Library README available on My Oracle Support.

Updates for Release 14.1

RRL is updated to reflect product enhancements made in release 14.1. The following enhancements are made to the specific components:

Retail Reference Model

  • A new spreadsheet provides descriptions of the responsibilities assigned to roles common in the retail industry.
  • New business process flows are added.
