    Four Steps Toward a Safer Continuous Delivery Practice (Hint: Add Monitoring)
    James Ma, Senior Product Manager, Pivotal & Michael Villiger, Sr. Technical Partner Manager, Dynatrace Recorded: Jan 23 2019 58 mins
    The demands of fast incremental code development require a stable, safe, and continuous delivery pipeline that can get your code into the hands of your customers without delay. Put your continuous delivery pipeline on autopilot by automating and simplifying the workflow—continuous integration to production readiness—and by using an automated monitoring solution to prevent bad builds from impacting production.

    This webinar will cover the steps to building an automated, monitored pipeline:

    1. Modeling and visualizing your build and delivery process as a pipeline (defined as a single, declarative config file) using Concourse CI.

    2. Leveraging integrations to trigger actions and share data, supporting functions like testing, collaboration, and monitoring.

    3. Enhancing your end-to-end continuous delivery pipeline with contextual deployment event feeds to Dynatrace.

    4. Adding automated, metrics-based quality gates between pre-production stages and an automatic post-production approval step, all with specifications defined in source control.

    Attendees will learn how some of the unique capabilities of Concourse CI and Pivotal Cloud Foundry, coupled with Dynatrace’s software intelligence, can put your continuous delivery pipeline on autopilot and ensure safer production outcomes.

  • Why Hybrid Cloud Demands Consistency
    Why Hybrid Cloud Demands Consistency
    Thomas Squeo, CTO, West Corp, Dave Bartoletti, VP, Forrester & Andrew Zeller, Sr. Product Marketing Manager Recorded: Dec 5 2018 60 mins
    Companies have realized that hybrid cloud adoption approaches better meet their needs for various reasons including increased developer velocity, improved infrastructure efficiency, and high availability/stability.

    But to take advantage of all hybrid cloud has to offer, companies must leverage consistent platforms, services, and tools across their hybrid cloud “continuum” to build and deploy new apps, modernize existing apps, and drive up infrastructure efficiency. Business stakeholders, development teams, and IT teams will benefit from a hybrid cloud approach that offers consistent services, tools, security, and operations wherever they choose to build, modernize, or deploy applications.

    Join Pivotal’s John Allwright, with special guests Thomas Squeo of West Corp and Dave Bartoletti of Forrester, for a discussion about the benefits of hybrid and multi-cloud approaches, and best practices for realizing their full benefit.

    Thomas Squeo, CTO, West Corp is responsible for West’s ongoing digital transformation bringing tools, techniques and processes to drive culture and product delivery via enterprise architecture throughout the corporation’s technology portfolio.

    Dave Bartoletti VP, Principal Analyst Serving Infrastructure & Operations Professionals has more than 25 years of experience as a software executive at several high-profile technology and financial services leaders.
  • Any Workload Any Cloud
    Any Workload Any Cloud
    David Kari, Head of Platform Architecture ANZ, Pivotal & Pas Apicella, Advisory Platform Architect APJ, Pivotal Recorded: Dec 4 2018 47 mins
    In today's enterprise, the CIO has a lot of choice about how and where they run their applications. With all the hype about moving to the cloud, the reality is that a large percentage of enterprise workloads still run on-premises due to technical complexity, data privacy, and security concerns.

    So how do you future-proof your business by introducing layers of abstraction that allow you to run any workload on any cloud?

    Join us on this webinar as we discuss the following:
    - Choosing the right runtime for your workload
    - Understanding the layers of application abstraction
    - Introducing Pivotal Cloud Foundry
  • Continuous Delivery to the Cloud: Automate Thru Production with CI + Spinnaker
    Continuous Delivery to the Cloud: Automate Thru Production with CI + Spinnaker
    Jon Schneider, Olga Kundzich, Pat Johnson from Pivotal Recorded: Nov 28 2018 55 mins
    To continuously deliver software to the cloud, companies must adopt critical capabilities that ensure the safety, security, scalability and traceability of deployed applications—from development hand-off through production release.

    Pivotal built a deep integration with Spinnaker, an open source continuous delivery platform, and Cloud Foundry (CF) to automate the full path to production. Spinnaker complements and extends the capabilities of continuous integration (CI) tools, including Concourse, to enable developers to ship code rapidly with increased confidence and greater visibility, as well as provide full auditability and operational control of applications.

    Spinnaker functions as an application-centric control plane, abstracting the details of cloud platforms not relevant to developers and organizing cloud resources around applications. It provides opinionated building blocks to perform common actions and allow deployment pipelines to be assembled consistently and as needed. Spinnaker’s pipeline workflows support more advanced rollout mechanisms like blue/green deployments, conditional deployments, time window restrictions, and automated canary analysis. Spinnaker also facilitates “in production” application testing, stressing and scaling.

    In this webinar, you will learn how:

    - Continuous delivery practices complement and extend continuous integration, enabling consistent, safe production releases
    - Spinnaker works with CI solutions to execute complex, rule-driven, cloud-provider-integrated, high-volume deployments
    - Spinnaker’s multi-cloud asset inventory supports construction of further operational tools like chaos engineering, zero-day security vulnerability scanning, and autoscalers

    We’ll also demo a Spinnaker pipeline so you can see continuous delivery to PCF in action.

    Refactoring the Factory: Building a Cloud-Native App Transformation Factory
    Mark Carlson, CGI, Carl Brooks, 451 Research & Jeff Kelly, Pivotal Recorded: Nov 15 2018 61 mins
    How is managing a massive cloud-native transformation effort different than the "application modernization factories" that have been around for years? Transforming or modernizing a portfolio consisting of hundreds of existing (aka, “brownfield”) applications is an enormous undertaking that requires a highly talented, cross-functional team.

    Attend this webinar with Pivotal, CGI, and 451 Research’s Carl Brooks to learn about the nuts and bolts of managing cloud-native application transformation at scale. After an overview from 451 Research, we’ll dive deep on the roles, tools, and processes required to create a well-run, cloud-native application transformation.

    Join us to hear how to replicate this success in your own organization!

  • How to Use Containers to Simplify Speedy Deployment of Database Workloads
    How to Use Containers to Simplify Speedy Deployment of Database Workloads
    Stephen O'Grady, RedMonk, Cornelia Davis & Ivan Novick, Pivotal Recorded: Nov 14 2018 59 mins
    Containers have been widely adopted to make development and testing faster, and are now used at enterprise scale for stateless applications in production. Database infrastructure has not seen quite the same gains in terms of velocity over that same period, however.

    Can containers be as transformative for databases as they have been for application development? If container technology can be leveraged for running database workloads, what impact does this have on architects and operations teams that are responsible for running databases?

    We’ll discuss the trends—from virtualization to cloud to containerization—and the intersection of these platform trends with the data-driven world.
