Palo Alto, California-based SymphonyAI has announced a collaboration with Texas-based Oracle to offer its solutions on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure using services including Oracle Exadata Database Service, GPU-accelerated compute and performance monitoring.
Beginning with SymphonyAI’s retail and CPG vertical solutions, customers can transition to the cloud to shorten technology deployment time and help ensure better real-time services with robust scalability and reduced costs.
“SymphonyAI and Oracle are heavyweights, and they have very best-of-breed solutions together,” said Jeff Main, CIO of Festival Foods.
“There’s a lot of value there, including not having to plan on-premises solutions and staff up with technical specialists. We can both replace legacy systems and create new systems to help deliver a more efficient, scalable way to run our growing business without adding overhead to support additional stores. It’s been amazing how simple it’s been to implement this very complex solution.”
The SymphonyAI Retail CPG vertical provides integrated AI-powered merchandising, marketing and supply chain solutions for retailers and CPG manufacturers. With Oracle’s alliance with NVIDIA, OCI provides GPU-accelerated compute services to support SymphonyAI’s customers’ ability to train AI models to forecast purchasing trends, so each customer’s store has the number of products in the right place on the shelves.
In addition, OCI Application Performance Monitoring provides visibility into the performance of applications and enables development teams to diagnose issues quickly.
“Retailers and CPGs continue to face the pressures of supply chain delays, increased customer demands and forecasting uncertainties, all while working to enhance their operations and find new ways to overcome these hurdles,” said Manish Choudhary, SymphonyAI Retail CPG president and CEO.
“This collaboration with Oracle provides customers with a reliable, secure solution that can scale with their fluctuating needs. Combined with the industry-specific AI-driven insights and recommendations that we provide, customers are equipped with all the resources they need to remain competitive and forward-looking.”
