Measuring and showing progress is critical to drive technology adoption and ensure the success of your modernization effort. A wise customer once said, “If you thought getting people to believe digital transformation is possible was tough, wait until you try and convince people that you actually accomplished successful transformation.”
Most people can relate! What is the language that describes digital transformation success? What are the success metrics of digital transformation that enterprises care deeply about? How does one know they are headed in the right direction?
In this webinar, Pivotal and New Relic will cover how your teams can do the following:
- Use lean principles and practices as applied to enterprise software delivery to measure transformation impact
- Easily create dashboards to monitor business and strategic value delivered at every phase of your digital transformation journey
- Ensure your entire stack—including infrastructure, cloud platform, applications, containers, and services—is tracking toward goals

Jonathan Schabowsky, Sr. Architect in the Solace Office of the CTO & Kamala Dasika, Pivotal
Modern applications are built to embrace unpredictability and interconnectivity across multiple clouds, legacy systems, and datastores. So how does one avoid cobbling together a slew of purpose-specific messaging and streaming technologies? How does one ensure consistent configuration of security policies, logging, and access to their distributed applications? And how do we do all that against the backdrop of ever-shrinking development cycles?
Join Jonathan Schabowsky from Solace and Kamala Dasika from Pivotal as they discuss:
- Data distribution challenges when connecting diverse endpoints and systems
- Patterns to help normalize the chaos
- Platform and messaging attributes that are key to supporting distributed architectures

Dave Meurer, Alliances Technical Manager at Black Duck by Synopsys, Kamala Dasika, Pivotal
Almost every major company uses or builds software containing open-source components today—96% of them, according to a report from Black Duck by Synopsis. The same report revealed that 78% of the apps that were audited had at least one vulnerability, including several that were reported nearly six years ago! Needless to say, not having solid open-source use policies and procedures in place for your developers poses a significant risk to any enterprise.
Black Duck and Pivotal collaborated to deliver a secure and simple user experience for rapidly building and deploying applications so that developers can benefit from the many advantages of using open source in their apps with confidence.
Join Dave Meurer from Black Duck and Kamala Dasika from Pivotal as they discuss:
- Key security concepts you need to know pertaining to cloud-native application development
- How to simplify and automate open-source security management for your applications and reduce license, operational risk, or policy violations

Join Vince Russo and Peter Blum from Pivotal as they show attendees a real-world example of straddling workloads across Pivotal Application Service (PAS) and Pivotal Container Service (PKS).
In this practitioner-focused webinar, we'll tour through Spring and .NET versions of an app to receive the output generated by the Watson Voice Gateway (WVG). Then we'll walk through the PKS-managed Kubernetes cluster using IBM-provided pods for deploying the Watson Voice Gateway (WVG). The cluster will be deployed using the PKS CLI, then the pods will be created with the WVG configuration file.
The Spring and .NET applications will be deployed on PAS. A third-party VoIP application will be used to call into the Voice Gateway to issue commands, which will be outputted to the Spring and .NET Application for "processing." Hear directly from our field and R&D experts!
Building a new application with the latest and greatest methodologies and frameworks? Sounds like fun! Modernizing the legacy .NET applications that have been driving your business for years? Sounds…painful.
Fortunately, a number of new technologies have emerged for the .NET ecosystem to support cloud-native .NET applications, and the processes for analyzing and modernizing them have matured.
In this webinar, join Magenic's Robert Sirchia and Pivotal's Chris Umbel to learn about modernizing .NET applications from a legacy Windows environment. The session will cover topics like:
- How can I determine which .NET applications from my portfolio to modernize?
- How do I decompose a monolithic .NET application into logical business domains?
- Which technologies, like Steeltoe, are available to adopt modern microservices architectures for .NET applications?
- How do I analyze the cloud-suitability of a portfolio of applications and prioritize it for modernization?
Sameer Advani, Jared Ruckle, and Pieter Humphrey, Pivotal
During this webinar, we'll discuss the new capabilities in Pivotal Cloud Foundry 2.2. Hear about the latest updates to PAS, PAS for Windows, and PKS. Plus, we'll also showcase new features for Operations Manager, CredHub, and PCF Healthwatch.
Applications need data, but the legacy approach of n-tiered application architecture doesn’t solve for today’s challenges. Developers aren’t empowered to build and iterate their code quickly without lengthy review processes from other teams. New data sources cannot be quickly adopted into application development cycles, and developers are not able to control their own requirements when it comes to data platforms.
Part of the challenge here is the existing relationship between two groups: developers and DBAs. Developers are trying to go faster, automating build/test/release cycles with CI/CD, and thrive on the autonomy provided by microservices architectures. DBAs are stewards of data protection, governance, and security. Both of these groups are critically important to running data platforms, but many organizations deal with high friction between these teams. As a result, applications get to market more slowly, and it takes longer for customers to see value.
What if we changed the orientation between developers and DBAs? What if developers consumed data products from data teams? In this session, Pivotal’s Dormain Drewitz and Solstice’s Mike Koleno will speak about:
- Product mindset and how balanced teams can reduce internal friction
- Creating data as a product to align with cloud-native application architectures, like microservices and serverless
- Getting started bringing lean principles into your data organization
- Balancing data usability with data protection, governance, and security

When moving workloads to the cloud, enterprise architects often ask things like, “Are we losing the ability to choose our stack and change vendors? How easily can I move my workloads in and out of the cloud? To keep workloads portable, do I lose out on innovation?”
There are a lot of misconceptions about cloud portability. The term itself implies moving workloads with no work (not true), suggests completeness in what’s moved (mileage may vary), and ignores the laws of data gravity (at your peril!). Platforms, like Pivotal Cloud Foundry (PCF), can make it much simpler to move workloads between clouds. But PCF fits within a broader set of concerns and decisions that need to be made.
In this webinar, Pivotal’s Joshua McKenty and Microsoft’s Ulrich Homann will debunk some common misconceptions about cloud portability, while explaining things like:
- The framework of developer efficiency (versus operational efficiency) tradeoffs across levels of abstraction
- The spectrum of standards that exist to support movability, and the tradeoffs therein
- Emerging abstractions at the data layer that simplify data access and digital twin development… and the realities of the cloud movability they support

Adopters of Pivotal Cloud Foundry have achieved remarkable gains in developer productivity. Allstate, Citi, CoreLogic, Liberty Mutual, and many others have shared their stories, detailing how they’ve attained a 3x to 4x increase in developer productivity. It’s common to hear Pivotal Cloud Foundry users share anecdotes like, “We delivered 3x the number of features this year compared to last year,” and “Our developers went from working on code only 20% of the time to 80–90% of the time.”
Where does this productivity come from? Attend this webinar and learn the five practices that lead to these software development process improvements:
- Developer Self-Service
- Smaller Projects and Smaller Releases
- Cross-Functional, Self-Directed Teams
- Increasing Visibility of Defects
- Reduce Variability
Along the way, we’ll also show how Pivotal Cloud Foundry enables each practice.
DevOps. Microservices. Containers. These terms have a lot of buzz for their role in cloud-native application development and operations. But, if you haven't automated your tests and builds with continuous integration (CI), none of them matter.
Continuous integration is the automation of building and testing new code. Development teams that use CI can catch bugs early and often; resulting in code that is always production ready. Compared to manual testing, CI eliminates a lot of toil and improves code quality. At the end of the day, it's those code defects that slip into production that slow down teams and cause apps to fall over.
The journey to continuous integration maturity has some requirements. Join Pivotal's James Ma, product manager for Concourse, and Dormain Drewitz, product marketing to learn about:
- How Test-Driven Development feeds the CI process
- What is different about CI in a cloud-native context
- How to measure progress and success in adopting CI
Dormain is a Senior Director of Product and Customer Marketing with Pivotal. She has published extensively on cloud computing topics for ten years, demystifying the changing requirements of the infrastructure software stack. She’s presented at the Gartner Application Architecture, Development, and Integration Summit; Open Source Summit; Cloud Foundry Summit, and numerous software user events.
James Ma is a product manager at Pivotal and is based out of their office in Toronto, Canada. As a consultant for the Pivotal Labs team, James worked with Fortune 500 companies to hone their agile software development practices and adopt a user-centered approach to product development.

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.
