OTTO needed to reinvigorate its eCommerce strategy. The monolithic platform they were using lacked flexibility and speed.
They partnered with ThoughtWorks to create a more nimble eCommerce machine. Together OTTO and ThoughtWorks implemented Agile processes, architecture and technology to create an adjustable platform that meets OTTO’s long term growth and business needs. A Microservices architecture was used so OTTO can quickly add new capabilities and decommission redundant ones easily over time.
Upgrades were incremental. The launch of the new platform was not disruptive to the business. No downtime, no extra shifts. For millions of shoppers the re-engineering was invisible. For Otto the benefits are immense. Time to market for new features has been compressed from months to minutes.
Now eCommerce represents 80% of total revenue and OTTO can reinvent itself every day.
