Why Hybrid Cloud Demands Consistency

Companies have realized that hybrid cloud adoption approaches better meet their needs for various reasons including increased developer velocity, improved infrastructure efficiency, and high availability/stability.

But to take advantage of all hybrid cloud has to offer, companies must leverage consistent platforms, services, and tools across their hybrid cloud “continuum” to build and deploy new apps, modernize existing apps, and drive up infrastructure efficiency. Business stakeholders, development teams, and IT teams will benefit from a hybrid cloud approach that offers consistent services, tools, security, and operations wherever they choose to build, modernize, or deploy applications.

Join Pivotal’s John Allwright, with special guests Thomas Squeo of West Corp and Dave Bartoletti of Forrester, for a discussion about the benefits of hybrid and multi-cloud approaches, and best practices for realizing their full benefit.

Thomas Squeo, CTO, West Corp is responsible for West’s ongoing digital transformation bringing tools, techniques and processes to drive culture and product delivery via enterprise architecture throughout the corporation’s technology portfolio.

Dave Bartoletti VP, Principal Analyst Serving Infrastructure & Operations Professionals has more than 25 years of experience as a software executive at several high-profile technology and financial services leaders.

  • How to Use Containers to Simplify Speedy Deployment of Database Workloads Recorded: Nov 14 2018 59 mins
    Stephen O'Grady, RedMonk, Cornelia Davis & Ivan Novick, Pivotal
    Containers have been widely adopted to make development and testing faster, and are now used at enterprise scale for stateless applications in production. Database infrastructure has not seen quite the same gains in terms of velocity over that same period, however.

    Can containers be as transformative for databases as they have been for application development? If container technology can be leveraged for running database workloads, what impact does this have on architects and operations teams that are responsible for running databases?

    We’ll discuss the trends—from virtualization to cloud to containerization—and the intersection of these platform trends with the data-driven world.
  • Everything You Wanted to Know About Serverless But Were Afraid to Ask Recorded: Nov 8 2018 62 mins
    Mark Fisher, Pivotal and John Rymer, Forrester
    Developers are excited about serverless computing, and rightfully so. With serverless, developers can spend more time writing code and less time worrying about, you guessed it, servers! But is serverless the right abstraction for every workload? How does serverless differ from an application platform? And despite the name, there need to be servers somewhere … Who’s managing them?

    Join us for a look at serverless computing and what it means for both developers and operations teams in the enterprise. In this webinar, Guest Speaker Forrester VP and Principal Analyst John Rymer and Pivotal’s Mark Fisher will cover:

    - What serverless is (and what it isn’t)
    - The current serverless open source and market landscapes
    - How serverless fits into modern application infrastructure
    - What workloads are best suited to serverless (and which aren’t)
    - Advice to developers (and operations teams) for getting started with serverless
  • Adding Edge Data to Your AI and Analytics Strategy Recorded: Oct 31 2018 56 mins
    Neil Raden, Hired Brains and Frank McQuillan, Pivotal
    IoT and edge analytics/intelligence are broad terms that cover a wide range of applications and architectures. The one constant is that the data that streams in from sensors and other edge devices is valuable, offering a wealth of opportunities to process and exploit, in order to improve the products and services that enterprises offer to their customers.

    But what is the nature of these intelligent analytical operations that one could do with sensor data, and where should those operations be performed? For example, where geographically should machine-learning models be trained: near the edge, in the data center, or perhaps at an intermediate point in between?

    In this webinar, Neil Raden from Hired Brains Research and Frank McQuillan from Pivotal will discuss the notion of edge analytics/intelligence, including where to perform computations, what context is needed to do so effectively, and what the platforms look like that enable advanced analytics and machine learning on IoT data at scale. We will also offer examples from recent experience that demonstrate the range of possibilities.

  • Platform Requirements for CI/CD Success—and the Enterprises Leading the Way Recorded: Jun 28 2018 60 mins
    James Ma, Pivotal and Jay Lyman, 451 Research
    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 Recorded: May 24 2018 55 mins
    Bob Glithero, PMM, Pivotal and James Curtis Senior Analyst, 451 Research
    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 Recorded: Apr 26 2018 60 mins
    Fernando Montenegro, 451 Research, Justin Smith and Jared Ruckle, Pivotal
    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 Recorded: Apr 3 2018 73 mins
    Mike Gualtieri, Forrester and Jag Mirani & Mike Stolz, Pivotal
    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 Recorded: Feb 27 2018 67 mins
    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:

    - 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.

  • The Data Warehouse in the Age of Digital Transformation Recorded: Feb 22 2017 50 mins
    Neil Raden, Principal Analyst, Hired Brains Research
    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
  • Understand the What, Why & How of Digital Transformation Featuring 451 Research Recorded: Feb 8 2017 55 mins
    Nick Patience, Founder & Research Vice President, 451 Research & Michael Cote, Director of Technical Marketing, Pivotal
    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)
  • Pivotal & Forrester Share 5 Common Approaches to Application Modernization Recorded: Dec 13 2016 61 mins
    Richard Seroter, Sr. Director, Pivotal and guest John Rymer, Vice President, Forrester
    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.
