Enterprise solutions like Oracle Retail play a central role in creating distinctive capabilities, a key building block for high performance in consumer goods and retail.
Accenture's research over decades has sought to understand how organizations have used enterprise solutions to achieve high performance in business. One area in which enterprise solutions play a critical role is in creating distinctive capabilities, one of the three building blocks of high performance. However, the majority of companies currently using an enterprise solution like Oracle Retail have concentrated on cost reduction and process improvement: this means they have not yet fully exploited Oracle Retail's functionality to create distinctive capabilities that will put them ahead of competitors. Forward-thinking companies have a clear opportunity to use Oracle Retail to create distinctive capabilities and so create competitive advantage.
A second unexploited opportunity is for users to understand and fully leverage the ongoing technology developments at Oracle Retail, including the complex strategic questions raised by its recent acquisitions of other leading technology vendors such as PeopleSoft, JD Edwards and Siebel.
With its business skills, deep insight into both the retail and consumer goods and services industries, and strong alliance with Oracle Retail, Accenture can help clients understand how to exploit these and other opportunities. Using a value-driven approach, we assess each client's situation and help to develop a road map for achieving high performance.
