Retail Strategy and Portfolio Update (11:15 AM-12:00 PM) 
Jeff Warren, Vice President, Oracle Retail

Attend this session to learn how Oracle is investing in the retail portfolio to shift from best practice to next practice to engage customers as individuals. To compete in a fast and fierce world, retailers must pivot to the customer and place the customer at the core of operations. By adopting a modern platform, retailers can automate integrated processes, process large volumes of information and obtain context through optimization with a single view of inventory, a single view of order, and a single view of the customer. (Session ID: PRO6327)

Omnichannel Innovation: Building Your Path to the Future (12:30-1:15 PM)
Jeff Warren, Vice President, Oracle Retail

Consumers no longer separate the omnichannel experience of your brand from the products you sell. Digital intertwines with that experience, which means that the stakes have never been higher to respond quickly to changing expectations, personalize every interaction, and blend online and offline. In this session, learn from product leadership about the latest innovations in digital commerce, in-store technology, and how Oracle is bringing digital and physical experiences together. (Session ID: PRO6330)

The Science of Retail Optimization (3:15-4:00 PM)
Marc Koehler, Solutions Director, Oracle Retail

Attend this session to see how a single view of inventory, infused with analytics and Retail Science, plays a crucial role in helping retailers understand their customers’ unique journey, and enables them to prepare and share individual customer experiences as they work to maintain and grow their customer base. Understanding how customers interact with your brand—how they buy and return merchandise across different channels—provides the single view of inventory that empowers retailers to profitably plan the right product at the right place in the right channel at the right time for the right price. (Session ID: BUS6331)
