    Pattern Overview

    The Enactor Retail Suite provides retailers complete control over business-critical software resources by delivering powerful tools to adapt applications on demand to meet their specific business processes without the need for traditional parameter-based source code modifications. Enactor combines a next generation point-of-sale (POS) with a full range of supporting applications to enable and maintain the store landscape across the enterprise. At its core is the Enactor Platform which hosts and provides generic services common to central and distributed systems.

    A retailer's highly valuable business processes are continuously evolving to meet customer demand, gain competitive advantage or increase market share. Maximizing these processes and accommodating adjustments to them is critical to remaining relevant and competitive in today’s challenging retail landscape. Configurable, parameter-based retail systems often leave a retailer unable to adapt or develop new processes without costly and time-consuming source code modifications. This disconnect in turn limits a retailer’s ability to meet customer demands or deliver a consistent experience across channels.

    Enactor has established itself as a market leader in service oriented architecture (SOA) aimed specifically at retail organizations. It focuses on delivering enterprise retail applications that can be adjusted "on demand" to meet the complex and fast-changing requirements of today's retail infrastructure.

    Business Case

    OneView’s Enactor Retail for Store marks a transformation in how point of sale and store systems are developed and interact across all channels. Leveraging a SOA-based, business process-driven architecture, OneView interconnects disparate applications via the commerce-driven Enactor Commerce Platform to enable seamless cross channel operations from the store up. Now enabled on PureFlex for rapid deployment.

    Business Problem

    OneView's Enactor Retail for Store provides an immediate solution to connecting disparate applications across the retail enterprise and provides the flexibility to run the application on any device any time, anywhere. This removes the issues of creating another technology silo when incorporating mobility into the business strategy.
