NetSuite presented to the National Retail Federation’s Big Show at the Jacob Javits Center in New York on January 15, 16 and 17
The company delivered a series of 15-minute presentations on The Path to Omnichannel Success, as attendees were invited to see how NetSuite’s cloud-based omnichannel commerce platform can help create a seamless customer journey.
Also on January 16, NetSuite’s new parent company, Oracle, presented its Oracle CloudWorld NYC event, in which CEO Mark Hurd delivered a keynote address about the future of the cloud.
Executives from NetSuite and Oracle also appeared at the New York Stock Exchange, just over a month after the exchange delisted NetSuite stock following the merger.
At the event, Hurd, NetSuite’s Zach Nelson and other executives rang the closing bell at the Stock Exchange, while also, in a special event in the Exchange’s boardroom, talking about the plans for the future.

NetSuite made a series of announcements about its expansion in certain industries, which was made possible by the Oracle deal:
“Given the recent acquisition by Oracle, the NetSuite Global Business Unit now has an even greater breadth of resources and greater depth of domain knowledge about the demands of vertical industries and the segments within them,” Ranga Bodla, NetSuite’s head of industry marketing, wrote in a blog post after the event.
“Combining these resources with NetSuite’s 18 years of experience in building a system to run a business from the cloud gives us the opportunity to move quickly to address new industry segments.”
