Our future for colleague and customer engagement and how we dealt with our global legacy along the way

ASDA is part of one of the world’s largest and most complex enterprise IT environments within the Walmart group of companies; stretching over 27 countries, 11,766 stores and with 2.3 million associates/colleagues.

In this event we will show how ASDA are delivering innovative IT change to improve our Colleagues and Customers experience in store and online

You’ll learn how ASDA Architects, Engineers and Product Managers are driving the migration from our legacy systems and embracing new technology to deliver improved experiences for our colleagues and customers.

New ways of working

Presenter: Jamie Korda, Enterprise Architect, will share how we are a core part of a global migration effort to transform the experience for our colleagues in store. Learn about how we have adopted new ways of working as a global team and the challenges of delivering radical change without impacting the day to day lives of thousands of ASDA colleagues across hundreds of stores.

The technology that underpins the transition

Presenter: Darren Kay, Senior Engineering Manager, will explain the shift in development processes we have had to adopt to drive the change. From the pitfalls of adopting agile, contributing to corporate insourcing project and everything in between, Darren will share the engineering view.

What to do when you arrive

Aim to be at Asda House 15 minutes before the start so that we can organise your access to the building and “Tomato Room” Auditorium.

You will need a recognised photo id to get in the building. We’ll have a colleague waiting at security to welcome you and show you where to go. Refreshments will be available before the presentation.

We’re looking forward to seeing you all in Asda House soon
