  • Maturing Your Cloud-Native Platform for Security and Resilience Recorded: May 21 2019 58 mins
    Jerome Walter, Field CISO APJ, Pivotal
    The emergence of cloud-native technologies—and immutable infrastructures more specifically—is changing the security risk landscape and offering a new perspective on security management.

    In this talk, we’ll explore the benefits of software architectures based on immutable infrastructures and how mature practices can help reduce the security risk—without spending on additional layers of security solutions.

    Specifically, we’ve seen how teams focusing on delivering the “3 Rs” of cloud-native security (repairing, rebuilding, and rotating) in their platform are shifting the needle of vulnerability management. Modern software’s ability for zero-downtime patching, periodical rebuilding, and short-lived secrets provide a massive reduction in security risks, allowing security and resilience practitioners to focus on added-value activities.

    As security is now operated throughout the IT organisation rather than in silos, we’ll extend our discussion to see how outcome-driven metrics can help create alignment across teams and be a measure for security management in a collaborative culture environment.

    Join us for this webinar to learn:
    - The native security benefits of immutable infrastructure
    - The 3Rs of cloud-native security: repaving regularly, repairing immediately, and rotating secrets frequently
    - Key security metrics to be used in DevOps practices
  • Monolithic Transformation: How Large Organisations Get Better at Software (EMEA) Recorded: May 16 2019 61 mins
    Michael Coté, Pivotal
    The cliché we all recite is that technology isn't the problem, culture is. Put another way: if the hardware and software are fine and fresh, it must be the meatware that smells. Come hear several de-funking recipes from the world’s largest companies whose meat now smells proper.

    Most large organisations struggle to deliver consistent, well-designed software to their customers. The usual schedule and budget delays persist and the resulting software is often lackluster at best. There are all sorts of tools and patterns like DevOps, lean product, and cloud-native that can make software better, but most organisations struggle to change the people side of the software stack.

    In this webinar, we’ll discuss:
    • How established organisations can learn to think of deliveries in terms of “products” instead of “projects”
    •How DevOps and cloud platforms enable a product mindset
    •The tactics and organisational structures that large organisations are using to improve their software

    All of this is based on case studies and interviews with the world’s largest organisations over the past five years, with each point grounded in real-world examples and experience.

    References and examples shared during this session are based on my book Monolithic Transformation (O'Reilly, Feb 2019).

  • Build Your Multi-Cloud Strategy and Avoid Cloud Lock-in Recorded: Apr 30 2019 48 mins
    Shaun Norris, Field CIO APJ, Pivotal
    Organisations adopt a multi-cloud approach for many reasons—regulatory interest, price arbitrage, flexibility, choice, data sovereignty, varying business requirements—the list goes on.

    However, from our conversations with several CIOs, we’ve learned that avoiding cloud lock-in is a primary driver behind a multi-cloud strategy. So what is cloud lock-in and what can you do to avoid being locked in?

    Attend this webinar as we examine the topic of cloud lock-in and how to operate in multiple clouds, specifically looking at:
    - The commercial, technological capability, process, and developer experience aspects of cloud lock-in
    - Mitigating approaches for dealing with cloud lock-in
    - Four key aspects to effectively executing a multi-cloud strategy
    - Common multi-cloud patterns
  • How to Migrate Applications Off a Mainframe Recorded: Apr 25 2019 64 mins
    Rohit Kelapure, Consulting Practice Lead, Pivotal
    Ah, the mainframe. Peel back many transactional business applications at any enterprise and you’ll find a mainframe application under there. It’s often where the crown jewels of the business’ data and core transactions are processed. The tooling for these applications is dated and new code is infrequent, but moving off is seen as risky. No one. Wants. To. Touch. Mainframes.

    But mainframe applications don’t have to be the electric third rail. Modernizing, even pieces of those mainframe workloads into modern frameworks on modern platforms, has huge payoffs. Developers can gain all the productivity benefits of modern tooling. Not to mention the scaling, security, and cost benefits.

    So, how do you get started modernizing applications off a mainframe? Join Rohit Kelapure, Consulting Practice Lead at Pivotal, as he shares lessons from projects with enterprises to move workloads off of mainframes. You’ll learn:

    ● How to decide what to modernize first by looking at business requirements AND the existing codebase
    ● How to take a test-driven approach to minimize risks in decomposing the mainframe application
    ● What to use as a replacement or evolution of mainframe schedulers
    ● How to include COBOL and other mainframe developers in the process to retain institutional knowledge and defuse project detractors
    ● How to replatform mainframe applications to the cloud leveraging a spectrum of techniques

    We look forward to you joining us.

  • Microservices, Events, and Breaking the Data Monolith with Kafka Recorded: Feb 27 2019 62 mins
    Cornelia Davis, Author & VP, Technology, Pivotal with Ben Stopford, Author & Technologist, Office of CTO, Confluent
    One of the trickiest problems with microservices is dealing with data as it becomes spread across many different bounded contexts. An event architecture and event-streaming platform like Kafka provide a respite to this problem. Event-first thinking has a plethora of other advantages too, pulling in concepts from event sourcing, stream processing, and domain-driven design.

    In this talk, Ben and Cornelia will tackle how to do the following:

    ● Transform the data monolith to microservices
    ● Manage bounded contexts for data fields that overlap
    ● Use event architectures that apply streaming technologies like Kafka to address the challenges of distributed data

  • Developing Serverless Applications on Kubernetes with Knative Recorded: Feb 21 2019 56 mins
    Bryan Friedman, Director of Product Marketing, Pivotal and Brian McClain, Principal Product Marketing Manager, Pivotal
    Serverless computing has become a hot topic in developer communities. The use of ephemeral containers eliminates the need for always-on infrastructure. But the real payoff for serverless is greater code simplicity and developer efficiency. Sounds great! Except the open-source serverless framework space is crowded and complex. Each unique offering approaches functions differently, with varying methods for triggering, scaling, and event formatting. How is that efficient?

    One thing that most everybody can agree on is to build on top of Kubernetes. With that as the only common ground though, there is still too much fragmentation for developers to wade through when deciding on the right open source serverless solution.

    That's where Knative comes in. An open-source project from Google, Pivotal, and other industry leaders, Knative provides a set of common tooling on top of Kubernetes to help developers build serverless applications. It extends Kubernetes by combining Istio with Custom Resource Definitions to enable a higher-level of abstraction for developers. This brings support for source-to-container builds, autoscaling, routing, and event sourcing. Join this session with Brian McClain and Bryan Friedman to see a complete working demo of Knative and learn:

    ● What are the components of Knative and how do they work together
    ● What are the different ways to deploy serverless applications and functions on Knative
    ● How and when to use Knative’s build features, such as Buildpacks
    ● What is Knative’s eventing model and how are event sources used to trigger functions
    ● How Project riff compliments development on top of Knative
  • Cloud-Native Security: Processes and Tools for Real-World Transformation Recorded: Feb 20 2019 59 mins
    Jeff Williams, co-founder and Chief Technology Officer of Contrast Security and David M. Zendzian, Pivotal Global CTO
    Can your organization support developer self-service across 11,000 workloads with certainty that 100% of the workloads are security-approved across the entire stack? The answer is yes with a cloud-native approach.

    Cloud-native platforms not only make it easier to support the kind of cultural shift necessary for continuously shipping software, they make it easier to practice good security and reduce the available attack surface. But an attack on the application itself can undermine all platform controls.

    In this webinar, Jeff and David will discuss application development code security in pre-production as well as runtime security at scale for cloud-native production applications. This session will cover the following:

    ● Tools that work well with rapid-cycle CI/CD pipelines
    ● Baking audit and compliance into pipelines
    ● Achieving zero downtime CVE patching and updates
    ● Vulnerability discovery, and blocking of application threats and attacks in the runtime
    ● Demonstration of threat discovery and blocking

    This is the second webinar in a series presented by Pivotal and Contrast Security on cloud-native security best practices. The previous webinar in this series is available in the attachment section.
