Retail Xstore Office Cloud Service 21.1
The Oracle Retail Xstore Suite has always offered a highly flexible deployment model that includes thick, thin, tablet, and handheld options at the store. Along with Xstore Office Cloud Service (XOCS), Oracle provides a Software as a Service (SaaS) offering to complement the current support for central functions available on premises or hosted in Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) or Platform as a Service (PaaS).
XOCS is the central component for the Xstore Suite available as a SaaS offering. It includes the web-based Xadmin application for retail operations management and Xcenter - a Java and JSON-based messaging framework. The Xadmin UI allows users to administer corporate-based functions such as Oracle Retail Xstore Point-of-Service configuration setup and maintenance, file management, viewing the electronic journal, viewing store reports, and monitoring alerts for the Oracle Retail Xstore Point-of-Service in use at the store. Xcenter provides the database, administration and services necessary to operate across the enterprise.
Oracle Retail Xstore Office Cloud Service provides for the straightforward management of the data and configurations that empower your associates. The user interface within Oracle Retail Xstore Office Cloud Service provides streamlined functionality that guides users through configuration changes, data changes, and deployments. Granular security access can create a custom experience for users of all access levels. Multiple support tools and alerts enable IT leaders to take a proactive approach to managing multiple installations.
Note: Retailers planning to implement Xstore Office Cloud Service (XOCS) should note that the XOCS version is required to be the same or higher than the deployed Xstore version. For example:
- XOCS 21.x will support Xstore 21.0.x, 20.0.x, 19.0.x, and 18.0.x
Note that this backwards compatibility does not apply to Xstore Office on-premise. For on-premise Xstore Office installations, the versions of all In Store and Office deployed components must match.
