PaaS is a key ingredient to help businesses operate and compete more like the internet giants and innovators who have created new value across virtually every industry. In this post, we provide a Pivotal point of view (POV) on why PaaS is a priority for business and technology leaders. Then, we round-up 10 key pieces of PaaS-related research to help support PaaS-related teams and projects. These survey-based statistics help to facilitate discussions, plans, or presentations and include line of business viewpoints on the value of PaaS.
Reduce resources and costs by almost a third. Increase performance from 3-20x. This is the net result of the Pivotal GemFire implementation at SBI Securities. In this case study, we provide an overview of how NRI Financial Solutions and Hitachi Financial Information Systems partnered to evaluate and deploy GemFire and provide a better solution than Oracle.
SAS Institute uses Pivotal tc Server as a standard app server to help reduce the costs associated with developing for 7 operating systems and 3 different application servers. This benefits SAS development, test, documentation, and support teams, and it also provides benefits to SAS customers. They lower the time and money spent on procurement, install, configuration, and operations.
Srinivas Ajjarapu has 20+ years of experience in enterprise software and manages an engineering team at HCL Technologies, a $6 billion dollar IT company with 90,000 employees. In this Q&A session, he shares where HCL has achieved client business results with Pivotal products, how HCL has helped companies save 60-70% on IT costs, and why they recommend Spring technologies.
Strata is all about the future of big data and data science—exactly the same reasons we formed Pivotal to solve. So it makes sense that this year, Pivotal is an Elite sponsor. While it may be our first time here as a stand-alone company, many Pivots have been here before as part of VMware or EMC. This year will be decidedly different for us though. Since the last Strata conference, we have been very, very busy spinning out, innovating and solving big data and data science challenges around the globe. For a taste of what we’ve been up to, check out the full post. For the full low down, come see us at Strata!
The connected car is a poster child for the “Internet of Things” and ripe with innovations from applying data science to big data. Pivotal Data Labs has been doing extensive work in the sector and shares some of the recent learnings from auto manufacturers that can also be applied to other industries. By understanding various driving behaviors and combining it with other data, they are predicting how long incidents take to clear, optimizing routes, and ultimately working towards the goal of helping car manufacturers improve design and predict wear and tear.
Recently surpassing a milestone of providing 74,000 builds per day for customers, hosted continuous integration provider Travis CI has grown significantly in the past few years, and RabbitMQ plays a central role in their architecture. In this post, Travis CI engineer, Mathias Meyer, shares an in-depth perspective on their architecture, key scale challenges, where they use RabbitMQ, and lessons learned.
Call it real-time Hadoop, Storm, big/fast data, or complex event processing. For financial services companies, well over an order of magnitude improvement can be had with C24, Spring, RabbitMQ, and Pivotal GemFire. In this Q&A, C24 founder and financial services integration technology expert, John Davies, explains how their Java toolset works with Pivotal technologies to process over one million complex events per second, blowing away the 20,000 message per second seen in prior benchmarks.
GIRE’s head of architecture and development, Gustavo Valdez, shares the how they use Pivotal GemFire to run a network of thousands of points of sale for billing, collection, payment, and transaction processing. As the leading processor of bills in Argentina, GIRE processes 19 million transactions a month on GemFire, and Valdez explains their challenges, business goals, and architecture.
In this Q&A, we share an extensive case study with a key point—start your software company with messaging at the center of your architecture because it will build in agile practices and better results for customers. The articles covers a .NET open source stack, a LEAN development approach, the outcomes of using RabbitMQ, and more—all shared by a lead C# .NET developer from a UK-based healthcare technology company.
