Banana Republic, a global apparel and accessories brand, is the latest Gap Inc brand to go live on Oracle’s Retail Cloud solutions. Gap Inc partnered with Oracle to deploy Oracle Retail Merchandising Cloud Service and Oracle Retail Integration Cloud Service to drive operational agility and furnish Banana Republic business teams with better intelligence.

The combined solutions, powered by Oracle Cloud Infrastructure, allow Banana Republic to synchronise merchandising operations from buying to inventory valuation, said Oracle in a press release. Moreover, daily tasks such as managing purchase orders and sales auditing are made more efficient and effective with a modern user interface that delivers exceptions and alerts to show buyers a path to resolution or items that require attention. With a single view of inventory, product data and transaction details, Banana Republic users have the data needed to do their jobs more effectively and easily.

In addition to migrating complex retail and financial workloads to the cloud, Gap Inc is also looking to seamlessly connect front-end and back-end functions by moving from a private cloud to Oracle Cloud Infrastructure leveraging various Oracle technologies, including Oracle Exadata Cloud Service and Java Cloud Service as foundation for a Retail Integration Hub and Oracle GoldenGate for real-time data replication.

“To meet the evolving needs of our global customers and how they want to shop, we need to simplify and scale operations. By adopting the Oracle Retail Cloud Service, we can maintain a consistent and modern merchandising platform that drives greater productivity through automated best practices,” said Sally Gilligan, chief information officer, Gap Inc.

“Oracle has long collaborated with Gap Inc on their journey to the cloud and is honoured to be part of this latest transition with Banana Republic,” said Mike Webster, senior vice president and general manager, Oracle Retail. “The retail market is evolving faster than ever before, and Oracle’s cloud solutions are providing Gap Inc and its brands the clarity and flexibility to shift with the demands of their business and customers.”

Oracle is the modern platform for retail. Oracle provides retailers with a complete, open, and integrated platform for best-of-breed business applications, cloud services, and hardware that are engineered to work together. (PC)
