The Data Warehouse in the Age of Digital Transformation

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

  • How to Build Awesome Software with Fully Remote and Distributed Teams Recorded: Mar 26 2020 63 mins
    Paul Sullivan, Solution Lead, VMware Pivotal Labs and Joe Moore, Staff Engineer Manager, VMware Pivotal Labs
    When people think about agile software development it’s often in a context of colocated teams working through problems and building features in an iterative way. This is how digitally native companies work and it’s broadly what all organizations have been marching towards.

    But the world has changed and in the wake of Coronavirus, employees and organizations everywhere are scrambling to stay safe and constrain the spread of this novel virus by working remotely. This can be daunting to say the least. How do you maximize the productivity of remote-only software teams? Can teams share knowledge and ramp-up new people efficiently? Can they avoid siloed decision making and ensure all people have a voice regardless if they’re introverted or extroverted?

    VMware Pivotal Labs is a recognized leader in agile software development for over 25 years. We have successfully delivered amazing business outcomes using distributed teams for hundreds of customers. Join us on March 26 to hear practical advice, processes, practices, and enabling technologies that we’ve developed for fully remote software development. Learn how to incorporate a few occasional "remotes," maintain teams split across regions and timezones, and even how to adopt an "everyone's remote" approach to your distributed agile teams.
  • Prod or it Didn’t Happen: The Value of Getting Code Into Production Recorded: Mar 19 2020 63 mins
    Sarah Musto, TEI Consultant, Forrester Consulting and Kyle Campos, SVP of SaaS Ops, Smarsh
    For all the talk of digital transformation, most organizations still struggle to get new code released into production. In fact, according to a Forrester survey of developers, 60% of respondents stated they release applications twice a year or less. How is software going to transform your business if it only changes twice a year?

    It turns out that getting software into production frequently benefits business in a number of ways. Developers are more productive. Revenue-generating applications get features to generate more revenue. Security patches are less disruptive and downtime costs decrease.

    In a recent study, commissioned by Pivotal (now part of VMware), Forrester Consulting quantified many of these types of improvements in a Total Economic Impact™ Study of Pivotal Platform (now part of VMware Tanzu). In this webinar, you’ll learn about the stringent methodology used by Forrester Consulting to calculate a 142% three year ROI for Pivotal Platform from our guest speaker Sarah Musto of Forrester Consulting. You’ll also hear best practices from Kyle Campos, SVP of SaaS Ops at Smarsh.

  • Using Windows Clusters on Kubernetes for Legacy .NET Applications Recorded: Sep 19 2019 63 mins
    Chris Umbel, Advisory Solutions Architect and David Dieruf, Product Marketing Manager at Pivotal
    Supporting legacy applications—much less figuring out how to containerize them—is not high on anyone’s list. Everyone has old infrastructure hosting even older apps, and is asked to “get it in a container.” With the introduction of Windows clusters in Kubernetes, we’re given a straightforward way of accomplishing this that results in very little tech debt.

    In this hour-long online class, we’ll set the following goals:

    ● Make no code changes during the move.
    ● Run the app in a true Windows container.
    ● Show step-by-step how it can be accomplished.

    We look forward to you joining us.

  • How to Boost Performance of .NET Microservices with Pivotal Cloud Cache Recorded: Sep 2 2019 20 mins
    Nikhil Chandrappa, Data Engineer, Pivotal
    In-memory caching is not new technology. But it takes on renewed significance with cloud-native, distributed applications. Modern day caching can alleviate the performance and availability challenges associated with your most important modern apps.

    In this webinar, we will explore why caching should be a vital part of your distributed systems. You’ll learn how:

    ● A highly available cache can keep apps online serving data, and protect against data loss, in the event of infrastructure failure.
    ● An elastic cache like PCC can adjust to the needs of your applications. Elasticity at the data layer is crucial for the elasticity of the entire system.
    ● A caching layer can reduce the adverse efforts of network latency on system performance.
    ● Enterprises use PCC alongside Pivotal Platform. We’ll also examine the day-to-day experience of managing the caching service.
    ● PCC can support caching patterns for Spring and .NET microservices.

    Join us to find out how caching can improve the performance of your essential customer-facing systems.

  • Cloud-Native Operations with Kubernetes and CI/CD Recorded: Aug 15 2019 62 mins
    Paul Czarkowski, Principal Technologist, Pivotal Software
    Operations practices have historically lagged behind development. Agile and Extreme Programming have become common practice for development teams. In the last decade, the DevOps and SRE movements have brought these concepts to operations, borrowing heavily from Lean principles such as Kanban and Value Stream Mapping. So, how does all of this play out if we’re using Kubernetes?

    In this class, Paul Czarkowski, Principal Technologist at Pivotal, will explain how Kubernetes enables a new cloud-native way of operating software. Attend to learn:

    ● what cloud-native operations are;
    ● how to build a cloud-native CI/CD stack; and
    ● how to deploy and upgrade an application from source to production on Kubernetes.

    We look forward to you joining us.
  • Why Developers Need a Platform and Not Just Containers (EMEA) Recorded: Aug 7 2019 59 mins
    Adam Fowler, Platform Architect, Pivotal
    Over the last few years, software containers have become a big deal. According to Gartner, "by 2023, Kubernetes will be deployed in more than 80% of all on-premises private cloud and cloud-inspired environments, up from less than 10% today, requiring I&O to acquire operational competencies."

    The wide adoption of containers has been primarily driven by developers. But to see real success, you need to work across both development and operations teams to ensure the environment in which these containers run can operate securely and at scale.

    Join Pivotal Platform Architect, Adam Fowler, for a webinar where we’ll explore how a platform offering, layered on top of containers, enables developers to build and deploy applications at speed and scale, thereby increasing productivity and product time to market.
  • Cut the Digital Transformation Fluff: Creating Metrics That Matter Recorded: Jul 18 2019 63 mins
    Jeffrey Hammond, Forrester Research & Patrick Feeney, Healthcare Services Corporation
    As the old adage goes, “you can’t manage what you can’t measure.” But what if the measurements are part of the problem? After all, you can move the needle on what you measure, but there may be unanticipated outcomes. When it comes to transforming how an organization delivers software, how you measure success also needs to change.

    Despite a marked adoption of agile development practices in the last five years, Forrester Research found that developers haven’t made much progress at delivering software faster. What’s the disconnect? Forrester has found a number of interrelated factors behind organizations that outperform in software delivery. One of them is metrics.

    Join this webinar with special guests Jeffrey Hammond, Forrester Research Analyst, and Patrick Feeney, Senior Director of IT Digital Products at Healthcare Services Corporation (HCSC), to learn:

    ● The types of metrics high-performance software teams are using
    ● Which metrics are counterproductive to improving software delivery
    ● How HCSC has used metrics to manage software delivery change
    ● Which roles should be using which metrics and when

  • 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.
