Welcome to the Retail wiki

I hope you all are having a great 2019 so far! We are looking forward to working together solving the toughest problems in Retail, please join our bi-weekly calls and the next Face to Face meeting. Attendance is open to everyone (you do not have to be a member of the OMG to participate), but you must still abide by the OMG IPR and Anti-Trust policies (keep your secret sauce secret, please).

In addition to our standards development creating RFP’s and RFC’s at the Object Management Group Meetings we also want to improve our collaboration efforts by leveraging our LinkedIn group (https://www.linkedin.com/groups/1796388).

Up to date information regarding meetings, agendas and previous meeting minutes can be found HERE on our Retail Wiki, so check back often to find out what is happening at all times.

Join the conversation in the Retail Domain Task Force sessions at the Object Management Group's virtual quarterly meeting.

Work completed on the UnifiedPOS extension for Retail Communication Service Devices (robots and more) is on track to official acceptance this month. Kudos to our partners at OPOS-J for their hard work.

Your help is needed in the effort to improve diversity, equity and inclusion in the creation of retail technology standards, defining a process and guidance for how to create and maintain our work without marginalizing anyone. We have a strong start to the effort, come see what we've created.

Other specifications on the docket to review and discuss are Digital Receipt, Fiscal API, POS Printer, shared components of UnifiedPOS 2.0, Micro-Location, and wrap up the sessions with work on the Retail Industry Ontology (RIO).

Check the agenda for call-in or remote access.


Best regards,

Andy Mattice

Chair, Retail Domain Task Force
