Guest Speaker Jon Erickson, Forrester and Dormain Drewitz, Pivotal
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:
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.
For more than 25 years IT organizations have spent many cycles building enterprise data warehouses, but both speed to market and high cost has left people continually searching for a better way. Over the last 10 years, many found an answer with Hadoop, but the inability to recruit skilled resources, combined with common enterprise necessities such as ANSI compliant SQL, security and the overall complexity has Hadoop relegated to an inexpensive, but scalable data repository.
Join Noel Yuhanna from Forrester and Pivotal’s Jacque Istok for an interactive discussion about the most recent data architecture evolution; the Big Data Fabric. During this webinar you will learn:
What a Big Data Fabric is
- How does it leverage your existing investments in enterprise data warehouses, data marts, cloud analytics, and Hadoop clusters?
How to leverage your team’s expertise to build a Big Data Fabric
- What skills should you be investing in to continue evolving with the market?
When is it appropriate for an organization to move to a Big Data Fabric
- Can you afford to divert from your existing path? Can you afford not to?
The skills and technologies that will ease the move to this new architecture
- What bets can you place that will keep you moving forward?
There was a time when the Enterprise Data Warehouse (EDW) was the only way to provide a 360-degree analytical view of the business. In recent years many organizations have deployed disparate analytics alternatives to the EDW, including: cloud data warehouses, machine learning frameworks, graph databases, geospatial tools, and other technologies. Often these new deployments have resulted in the creation of analytical silos that are too complex to integrate, seriously limiting global insights and innovation.
Join guest speaker, 451 Research’s Jim Curtis and Pivotal’s Jacque Istok for an interactive discussion about some of the overarching trends affecting the data warehousing market, as well as how to build a next generation data platform to accelerate business innovation. During this webinar you will learn:
- The significance of a multi-cloud, infrastructure-agnostic analytics
- What is working and what isn’t, when it comes to analytics integration
- The importance of seamlessly integrating all your analytics in one platform
- How to innovate faster, taking advantage of open source and agile software
We look forward to you joining us.
The Pivotal Team
Enterprise executives and IT teams alike know that data science is not optional, but struggle to benefit from it because the process takes too long and operationalizing models in applications can be hairy.

In the whirlwind of digital business where web, mobile and now line-of-business app growth is exploding across every industry, how should operations teams respond? Do you add more people, automate what your experts already do, or is there another way?
Join guest speaker Forrester Principal Analyst Dave Bartoletti and John Allwright from Pivotal for an interactive discussion of how leading companies have successfully transformed their operations functions to accelerate digital transformation.
They will share data and research on how operations teams are moving from being cost centers to the engine powering modern app development -- and how modern apps delivers value to the business beyond infrastructure efficiency.
Ever wondered what separates high-performance development organizations from shops that struggle to maintain productivity? The answer’s not always obvious, but there are recurring best practices that enlightened development managers use to maximize flow, engage developers, and improve results.

- Tools and DevOps tactics to unlock high-performance and help teams deliver better software outcomes.
In the past years of Big Data and digital transformation “euphoria”, Hadoop and Spark received most of the attention as platforms for large-scale data management and analytics. Data warehouses based on relational database technology, for a variety of reasons, came under scrutiny as perhaps no longer needed.
However, if there is anything users have learned recently it’s that the mission of data warehouses is as vital as ever. Cost and operational deficiencies can be overcome with a combination of cloud computing and open source software, and by leveraging the same economics of traditional big data projects - scale-up and scale-out at commodity pricing.
In this webinar, Neil Raden from Hired Brains Research makes the case that an evolved data warehouse implementation continues to play a vital role in the enterprise, providing unique business value that actually aids digital transformation. Attendees will learn:
- How the role of the data warehouse has evolved over time
- Why Hadoop and Spark are not replacements for the data warehouse
- How the data warehouse supports digital transformation initiatives
- Real-life examples of data warehousing in digital transformation scenarios
- Advice and best practices for evolving your own data warehouse practice
Why did we hear so much about “Digital Transformation” in 2016, and frankly what does it mean? While it's easy to dismiss the phrase with an eye-roll, there's no better phrase to represent improving how IT is used to help drive business innovation...and the huge changes organizations must go through to be successful. This webinar with Nick Patience, Research Vice President for 451 Research's software team, and Michael Coté of Pivotal will discuss a pragmatic definition and approach to Digital Transformation as seen through the experiences of organizations who've lived through it.
Digital Transformation is about fundamentally rebuilding business and IT processes, not just about building apps. 451 Research defines Digital Transformation as “a result of IT innovation that is aligned with and driven by a well-planned business strategy, with the goal of transforming how organizations serve customers, employees and partners.” Some main features of a successful transformation include the ability to quickly react to market demands, and use information to make better decisions and serve constituents more effectively.
In this webinar Nick Patience of 451 Research and Pivotal’s Michael Cote will discuss:
- Why now is the time for Digital Transformation
- How the balance of power between customer and provider contributes to this new revolution
- Shifting priorities that require new practices and processes and the technical tools and platforms that support them
- Real-world examples of organizations that have been there (we’ll share all the gorey details, including what worked and didn't work for them)
Are you trying to figure out how your existing application portfolio fits in your digital transformation? Digital transformation is not just about building new applications, but also about unlocking the value in the existing ones. To unlock that value, these applications often need some level of modernization. But how much is enough? What types of applications require the most changes? Can you just lift-and-shift applications into the latest container platform and call it done? These tough questions are critical to your long-term success.
Forrester Research has uncovered five common approaches to application modernization: lift-and-shift, lift-and-extend, SaaS substitution, full replacement, and hybrid extend. In this webinar featuring John Rymer of Forrester, and Richard Seroter of Pivotal, you will learn about these five approaches and the benefits and risks of each. We will discuss how to profile your existing application portfolio to identify which applications are the right fit for each modernization approach.
