Oracle is a leader in two analyst retail planning reports.
Oracle is a leader in Gartner’s Magic Quadrant for Retail Assortment Management Applications, a position that we proudly earned for 4-consecutive years. Oracle’s ongoing leadership in merchandising assortment solutions is attributed to its extensive patents for new technology, a steady expansion of functional capabilities, a growing user community, new cloud services and integration with other Oracle and non-Oracle merchandising and supply chain applications. Oracle was again positioned as a leader within the Product or Service category, for providing choice in platform, architecture and public cloud services.
The analysis also positions Oracle as a leader because of market understanding. Oracle has extensive retail user groups and solution patents, as well as participates regularly in retail industry events. Overall, Oracle is recognized in the industry for its functional capabilities and retail best practices. There is also proven flexibility that allows Oracle Retail Assortment Planning solutions to integrate with other vendor's systems, as well as other Oracle solutions, like Oracle Retail Allocation.
In Forrester's evaluation, "Oracle demonstrated above-par capabilities in customer segmentation, store cluster-sensitive assortment planning, merchandise financial planning, planning for operational efficiency, and initial order, replenishment, and allocation. Oracle is the best fit for retailers, distributors, and brands looking for integrated retail planning with international functionality and global support."
