Query on Job scheduling capabilities in later Oracle Retail version like V19.

Currently using Oracle retail application version 13.1.6 with UC4AM scheduler to run all the oracle retail nightly and cyclic jobs.

Based on our reference of some oracle documents , it is understood that later version (V19 for example) has an inbuilt job scheduling application to run Oracle retail jobs called as "Oracle Retail Job Orchestration and Scheduler" (JOS).

We also found documents on oracle support about Retail Process Orchestration and Monitoring (POM) application which provides comprehensive batch scheduling and monitoring capabilities for Oracle Retail SaaS applications.

As per Oracle documentation, POM provides following key features :
• Support for Cyclical (or Hourly)/Ad-hoc (or Standalone)/End of Day (or Nightly) scheduling modes
• Dashboard monitoring facility for managing errored jobs, holding, releasing, skipping jobs, and so on
• Configurable Scheduler for time based Invocation of Hourly, Ad-Hoc or Nightly cycles
• External (customer) invocation of Hourly, Ad-Hoc or Nightly cycles
• Configurable Schedule for tailoring batch to specific customer needs such as enabling/disabling certain jobs
• Hooks to integrate with external (customer) systems for two-way dependency management and job status updates
• Configurable notifications with ability to send email notifications

Can you please confirm that-

  1. Oracle retail V19 has inbuilt job scheduling capabilities with features listed above and an external scheduler will not be needed if upgrading to V19.
  2. Confirm that the above feature is available for both on-premise and cloud options.
