Applying the Patch Release
Before applying the ReIM 13.2.3 patch release, be sure that ReIM 13.2 has been
installed.
Before applying the patch release over your files:
■
■
Note whether any modules have been customized. If so, the customizations must
be reapplied to the new version of the module, or the fix may need to be applied to
the custom version of the code.
Copy the original files to a different directory before you copy over them, in case
you need to refer to them at a later date.
Running Scripts
Back up data before running any script, because the scripts provided do not preserve
data. See defect reports for details.
Check with your database administrator to determine whether your database should
be analyzed after a script is run. In many cases, analysis of the database is necessary to
take advantage of new or modified indexes intended to improve performance of the
application.
Technical Enhancements
The following are technical enhancements for Oracle Retail Invoice Matching Release
13.2.3.
Oracle Exadata Database Machine X2 Support
Oracle Exadata Database Machine X2 is a combination of smart software and
industry-standard hardware. It provides database-aware storage services, such as the
ability to offload database processing from the database server to storage,
transparently, without affecting SQL processing and your database applications.
Oracle Retail Invoice Matching Release 13.2.3 is supported on Oracle Exadata
Database Machine X2 through the binary compatibility with Oracle Linux Release 5
Update 5 and Oracle Database 11g Release 2 Enterprise Edition on Oracle Real
Application Clusters (RAC) 11g.

Integration Enhancements
The following enhancement is included in Oracle Retail Invoice Matching Release
13.2.3.
Integration with Oracle Retail Analytics
Oracle Retail Analytics is a business intelligence solution for the retail industry. Retail
Analytics offers an integrated view of retail data from various source systems, and it
allows users to create analytical reports for areas such as inventory management,
merchandising management and pricing management.
Retail Analytics extracts data from the source systems and then transforms and loads
the data into the Retail Analytics data model to support reporting and analysis. ReIM
is an application from which Retail Analytics extracts data. Retail Analytics uses
Oracle Data Integrator (ODI) for extraction, transformation, and loading. ODI
programs that extract information from ReIM are packaged with the Oracle Retail
Analytics application. At the time of Retail Analytics installation, these ODI programs
are deployed to the ReIM instance. For more information about Oracle Retail Analytics
ODI extraction programs, see the following guides:

Oracle Retail Analytics 13.2.3 is a complete new base release of the
product and replaces all previous releases. See the Oracle Retail
Merchandising Analytics Release Notes for Release 13.2.3 for more
information.
To integrate with Retail Analytics 13.2.3, ReIM 13.2.3 is the
required release level.
Defect Fixes and Documentation
A defect fix is a modification to the base Oracle Retail code (for example, a bug fix, a
performance enhancement, or a functional enhancement). Each defect fix that is
included in this release has a corresponding defect report titled <defect-number>.PDF
(for example, 12345678.PDF).
In the same folder, the file named DEFECT MODULE XREF ReIM 13.2.3.XLS lists
every defect number and the modules and scripts that are included in this release.
Review each defect report carefully before implementing the defect fixes. Note that
scripts do not preserve data. Make sure that all data is backed up before you run any
script.
