Warehouse Mechanization

Season 2021, Episode 94
Or listen via...
Warehouse mechanization is a part of our IT landscape where our IT meets the physical world. It is one of those places where we encounter that while we could scale our IT almost indefinitely in the cloud, the physical world and warehouses don't work that way. As you listen to this episode you will learn how the world of IT has to adapt to the physical world to make things work. And as Peter states this is also the place where e-commerce comes to life.

What the episode covers

This is the place where all the bits and bytes in the webshop have to lead to tangible products that are picked and delivered to our customers. By all measures a real interesting place.
