Last week, Pivotal’s managing editor of the blog, Stacey Schneider, spent the week at three major events expecting to talk mostly about data. While data was a key theme, the real struggle for customers centered around transforming aged enterprise businesses into technology companies to compete in today’s tech savvy world. In looking at the dichotomy between the companies that are being successful on their journey to transformation and those who are struggling, a common theme emerged: Pivotal Labs is the secret weapon. This post explains why.
Cote kicks off his first month at Pivotal by touring three European tech conferences, including the RedMonk conference Monkigras, FOSDEM and Config Management Camp.
