  • Platform Requirements for CI/CD Success—and the Enterprises Leading the Way
    Platform Requirements for CI/CD Success—and the Enterprises Leading the Way James Ma, Pivotal and Jay Lyman, 451 Research Recorded: Jun 28 2018 60 mins
    All enterprises want to increase the speed of software delivery to get new products to market faster. The means for achieving this is often through the practice of continuous integration/continuous delivery. But speed alone isn’t enough—teams also require the ability to pivot when conditions change. They must ensure their software is stable and reliable, and be able to roll out patches and other security measures quickly and at scale.

    A cloud-native platform coupled with test-driven development and CI/CD practices can help make this a reality. In this webinar, 451 Research’s Jay Lyman presents the results of his research into cloud-native platform requirements for enterprise CI/CD and DevOps success. Pivotal’s James Ma joins Lyman to discuss best practices from DevOps teams charged with running and managing cloud-native platforms, including applying CI/CD to the platform itself.

  • Simplified Machine Learning, Text, and Graph Analytics with Pivotal Greenplum
    Simplified Machine Learning, Text, and Graph Analytics with Pivotal Greenplum Bob Glithero, PMM, Pivotal and James Curtis Senior Analyst, 451 Research Recorded: May 24 2018 55 mins
    Data is at the center of digital transformation; using data to drive action is how transformation happens. But data is messy, and it’s everywhere. It’s in the cloud and on-premises. It’s in different types and formats. By the time all this data is moved, consolidated, and cleansed, it can take weeks to build a predictive model.

    Even with data lakes, efficiently integrating multi-structured data from different data sources and streams is a major challenge. Enterprises struggle with a stew of data integration tools, application integration middleware, and various data quality and master data management software. How can we simplify this complexity to accelerate and de-risk analytic projects?

    The data warehouse—once seen as only for traditional business intelligence applications — has learned new tricks. Join James Curtis from 451 Research and Pivotal’s Bob Glithero for an interactive discussion about the modern analytic data warehouse. In this webinar, we’ll share insights such as:

    - Why after much experimentation with other architectures such as data lakes, the data warehouse has reemerged as the platform for integrated operational analytics

    - How consolidating structured and unstructured data in one environment—including text, graph, and geospatial data—makes in-database, highly parallel, analytics practical

    - How bringing open-source machine learning, graph, and statistical methods to data accelerates analytical projects

    - How open-source contributions from a vibrant community of Postgres developers reduces adoption risk and accelerates innovation

    We thank you in advance for joining us.
  • InfoSec: Evolve Thyself to Keep Pace in the Age of DevOps
    InfoSec: Evolve Thyself to Keep Pace in the Age of DevOps Fernando Montenegro, 451 Research, Justin Smith and Jared Ruckle, Pivotal Recorded: Apr 26 2018 60 mins
    Companies going through digital transformation initiatives need their IT organizations to support an increased business tempo. While DevOps practices have helped IT increase their pace to keep up with market dynamics, security teams still need to follow suit.

    InfoSec practitioners must modernize their practices to realize efficiencies in some of their most burdensome processes, like patching, credential management, and compliance.

    By embracing a ‘secure by default’ posture security teams can position themselves as enabling innovation rather than hindering it.

    Join Pivotal’s Justin Smith and guest speaker, Fernando Montenegro from 451 Research, in a conversation about how security can enable innovation while maintaining best security practices. They will examine best practices and cultural shifts that are required to be secure by default, as well as the role processes and platforms play in this transition.

  • Overcoming Data Gravity In Multi-Cloud Enterprise Architectures
    Overcoming Data Gravity In Multi-Cloud Enterprise Architectures Mike Gualtieri, Forrester and Jag Mirani & Mike Stolz, Pivotal Recorded: Apr 3 2018 73 mins
    Enterprise architectures never sleep because cloud-first strategies must also become multi-cloud-first strategies. Public cloud providers such as Microsoft Azure are providing compelling services and pricing. And, most enterprises now consider their own datacenter a private cloud.

    This is not a one-cloud playing field and enterprise architects must develop strategies, standards, and policies about how their data is being used, moved, and created across multiple cloud infrastructures.

    Join Pivotal’s Jag Mirani and Mike Stolz along with guest, Forrester Vice President and Principal Analyst, Mike Gualtieri, as they examine the trends driving multi-cloud adoption and more importantly how to architect technical solutions to make data free to roam among them safely.

  • The Math Behind (and Beyond) Digital Transformation
    The Math Behind (and Beyond) Digital Transformation Guest Speaker Jon Erickson, Forrester and Dormain Drewitz, Pivotal Recorded: Feb 27 2018 67 mins
    Measuring the value of a platform on your organization can be difficult, and communicating it can be even more so. The first step is figuring out what you should measure, next is evaluating the impact of the platform using quantifiable and qualifiable results, and finally, communicating the tangible outcomes to your organization.

    Understanding this, Pivotal commissioned Forrester Consulting to conduct a Total Economic Impact™ (TEI) study that examined both the quantifiable and qualifiable results that Pivotal Cloud Foundry (PCF) has had on customer organizations.

    Using a stringent methodology, Forrester highlights some of the benefits that Pivotal customers realized in areas such as:

    - Operational efficiency
    - Increased developer productivity
    - Decreased downtime / higher quality software
    - Shortened release cycles

    Join Pivotal’s Dormain Drewitz, and special guest Jon Erickson, vice president and director of Forrester's Total Economic Impact practice, as they dig into the metrics and results of the TEI study about Pivotal Cloud Foundry.
