Oracle Data Integrator deployed
Shopper’s Stop Limited, meanwhile, has deployed Oracle Data Integrator Enterprise Edition as part of its enterprise data warehouse. With Oracle Data Integrator, the retailer will be able to reduce the time taken to refresh data to its data warehouse from half a day to one hour, which ensures managers receive timely sales, loyalty and inventory data.
The software will also help Shopper’s Stop Ltd to better analyse which products are selling through its stores across the country, and analyse customer-buying behaviour so they can maintain optimum inventory levels.
“IT helps optimise business and reduce operational IT budgets. Oracle has been a key component in helping us in our quest towards delivering value to business,” said Arun Gupta, customer care associate and group chief technology officer, Shopper’s Stop Ltd.
Stressing that managing information is the key in a highly competitive sector such as retail, Shailender Kumar, VP, Fusion Middleware, Oracle India, said, “The deployment of Oracle Data Integrator has enabled Shopper’s Stop Ltd to quickly integrate vast amounts of data from disparate systems, while reducing costs and improving efficiencies.”
