We'll respond shortly.
In this episode of Pivotal Insights, host Jeff Kelly speaks with Elisabeth Hendrickson, head of R&D for Pivotal's data portfolio, about how agile and DevOps might be applied to data analytics, what it would mean from a people and process perspective, and how data analytics technologies would need to evolve to support it.
This article demonstrates how the Pivotal Data Science team helped a major German car manufacturer build a scalable Internet-of-things (IoT) platform with the help of Pivotal Cloud Foundry (PCF). This post is a summary of a talk recently delivered at Cloud Foundry Summit Europe 2016.
Pivotal Cloud Foundry is now generally available to run on Google Cloud Platform (GCP). Now enterprises can build, deploy, and run cloud-native apps on the same infrastructure that powers Google Search, Google Maps and YouTube. PCF deployments can be enhanced and extended with Google’s data products (like BigQuery and the Cloud Machine Learning platform).
With the release of Spring Cloud Services 1.2, operators can configure peer replication of Service Registry service instances. Now, when an application registers with a Service Registry instance, that same application is available for lookup by consumers in a PCF installation in another data center, or across organizations within a single PCF installation.
In this Pivotal Insights episode, host Jeff Kelly talks with Pivotal’s Jacque Istok, who runs Pivotal’s data engineering and data science field organization, about how to break down the wall between application developers and data professionals. The two also discuss the concept of balanced teams to support data analytics projects.
Pivotal is embracing pay transparency to build employee trust. We are pleased to report that a recent pay analysis, found that, for employees with similar roles and circumstances, women working for Pivotal earn on average 98 cents for every dollar male employees earn and employees of color earn on average $1.02 for every dollar white employees earn. Pivotal has also signed the White House Equal Pay pledge as a company that supports the advancement of equal pay.
When you're moving fast, things will break more often. It's little wonder, then, that with a microservices approach you need to pay close attention to ensuring the safe, yet speedy change to APIs. The idea of "consumer-driven contracts" has been percolating for a long time. The idea is to shift the "power" in the relationship between the provider of APIs and the consumer of those APIs more to the consumers. In this episode, Coté talks with Marcin Grzejszczak on how the newly released Spring Cloud Contract, a new approach to APIs that is more resilient, and helps providers to protect backward compatibility.
Steeltoe, a new open source project, aims to ease microservices adoption for .NET developers, using the same NetflixOSS technology that is popular in the Java world. It is purpose-built to help developers evolve an application from a monolithic .NET 4.x architecture to a set of .NET Core microservices. Because Steeltoe is essentially an adapter between the .NET framework and Spring-based NetflixOSS tooling, the project offers additional efficiencies to enterprises that use both Java and .NET.
In this Pivotal Insights episode, host Jeff Kelly talks with Dormain Drewitz, head of marketing for Pivotal’s data business, contemplating the data hugger mindset and proposes some strategies for changing hearts and minds when it comes to sharing data. Also, Salesforce’s AI efforts and the wider implications for the blending of insights with applications.
Building a high performance organization requires more than just putting good technologies and practices in place for developing and delivering product, it requires the right culture as well. In large organizations, this often means changing the culture. At the heart of that is people, so it's natural that Human Resources will get involved, hopefully sooner rather than later. To discuss these topics, we bring back Joe Militello for the second time to discuss how Pivotal thinks through HR and the consultative work our team has been doing on these topics.
