Interview with Ocado CTO Paul Clarke in quotes

ComputerworldUK met Ocado’s chief technology officer (CTO) Paul Clarke to find out why the world’s largest dedicated online groceries retailer believes it should be considered as much a technology company as Google or Facebook.


Projects that Ocado Technology deals with include a major move to cloud platforms, which will involve a replacement of its large, on-premise Oracle estate, to experiments with smart vision systems and robotics. This will be supported by a high-profile recruitment campaign the company is running to attract the type of skilled people who would be interviewing for a major tech company like Google, to Ocado instead.
