InfoQ interviewed Eric Bowman, VP Digital Foundation at Zalando SE, about how autonomy is scaled at Zalando. Eric gave a talk titled “Organized Autonomy: Cracking the Paradox” at Agile Summit Greece 2018
“As soon as a user clicks 'Place an order', we're the first to receive the request. Every penny of the 3.6 billion € in revenue goes through our components. We are responsible for maintaining the state of all customer orders and informing them along the progress, this orchestration involves a lot of interaction with all parts of the company so that we can provide infrastructure to make sure to support our 22 million active customers. We work hard, we play harder, whether it’s a barbecue, a party boat or an Escape Room challenge – our team’s events are always fun.”
