In the retail industry, the quote: “The only thing that is constant is change,” by Greek Philosopher Heraclitus of Ephesus is certainly true today.
Consumers expect and demand more, while the methods of reaching them through various channels, technologies and mobile devices are evolving at an astounding pace. To address this rapidly changing environment, Oracle invited retail industry thought leaders and experts to Washington DC for Oracle Industry Connect, March 25-26, 2015. The conference includes many different industries (Communications, Education & Research, Energy, Financial Services & Insurance, Hospitality, Life Sciences & Healthcare, Primavera, Retail) being held concurrently in venues around DC.

The conference’s program for Retail theme is “Enabling the Commerce Anywhere Experience,” and showcases more than 30 successful retailers sharing their inspiring stories of transformation, including the challenges they face, and their strategies for overcoming them. In addition to featured Keynote Speaker Condoleeza Rice, there will be sessions on the Oracle Retail Roadmap, the recent MICROS acquisition and valuable Infogain networking opportunities.
