JCPenney to implement Oracle integrated suite
Jul '12
J. C. Penney Company Inc. will implement a complete, open and integrated suite of Oracle Retail solutions to streamline operations and improve the cross-channel customer experience as the company transforms its retail operations on a journey to become America's Favorite Store.

jcpenney will use Oracle Retail Merchandising Operations Management, Oracle Retail Merchandise Planning and Optimization, Oracle Retail Supply Chain Planning and Execution, and Oracle Retail Stores solutions to simplify processes, reduce layers and equip business teams to better shape assortments and respond faster to customer preferences.

To help drive performance throughout the business, jcpenney will implement Oracle Retail Merchandising Analytics, a next-generation business intelligence application that provides merchants and planners with real-time, mobile insight to item and category performance, including key metrics such as inventory position, sales, stock ledger, cost, forecast and promotions.

The Oracle Retail implementation builds on jcpenney's existing deployment of Oracle Commerce, Oracle Database and several components of Oracle Fusion Middleware as well as the Oracle E-Business Suite, Oracle's PeopleSoft Applications and Oracle Hyperion Performance Management applications.

Oracle Retail applications help retailers connect and improve the cross-channel customer experience, optimize retail operations and equip associates with immediate, mobile-enabled access to accurate insights regarding customers and the business.
