Oracle Recognized as Leader in IDC MarketScape for Restaurant POS

IDC released its fi rst MarketScape for restaurant POS, and it recognized Oracle Food and Beverage as a leader.

The report evaluated POS software vendors on their commitment to delivering advanced and omnichannel POS services and capabilities to the QSR segment. In addition to being named a leader, Oracle’s deep well of domain knowledge, technology and architecture expertise, investments in R&D and fresh energy generated from the newly created Oracle Food and Beverage global business unit were recognized in the report.

According to the IDC MarketScape report, “The Food and Beverage Global Business Unit’s strategy is twofold: to evolve the MICROS Simphony solution from a POS to a transaction platform – an ecosystem that can deliver greater value through the partners and network that the POS is integrated to and to focus the platform and ecosystem on three areas: make money, save money and save time. While the evolution to the platform is ongoing, Oracle continues to innovate in areas including applying data science to menu recommendations and optimized forecasting, providing better visibility to operational metrics, accelerating the payment process, and developing better APIs that drive more value from the partner network, analytics and visualization.” Read the excerpt here: http://ora.cl/oP09p.

Restaurant Leaders of Tomorrow Share Their Ideas
