Why is Reporting Important to Оcado's Fulfilment Operation? (Steven Payling)

Ocado promises exceptional levels of customer service from on-time deliveries to order fulfilment levels while also maintaining extremely high levels of operational efficiency. In order to achieve this, we need to enable the operational management teams to see and respond to any issues or deviations from their plans and targets and to make real time decisions that maximise service to our customers. The next generation cfc reporting platform is on a journey to help us deliver on these promises.

Developing an Еvents-Based Reporting Solution for a 24/7 Automated Warehouse (Ben Murray)

At Ocado Technology development teams have a lot of autonomy when it comes to deciding how to build the applications and what technologies to use. This talk will cover some of the many challenges and experiences of developing software to control and manage an automated warehouse. It will dive into some of the detail and some of the different technologies that we chose to build our applications with. How our team culture has developed to help us to adapt to the continuously changing requirements, and how we balance new features, refactoring, bug-fixing and the freedom to experiment with new and different ideas and technologies.
