Pivotal and Cognizant to Accelerate Adoption of Enterprise-Scale Cloud Applications

Joint Initiative to Enable Digital Transformation At Scale

SAN FRANCISCO and TEANECK, N.J., May 8, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Pivotal® and Cognizant (NASDAQ: CTSH) today announced a new joint initiative designed to accelerate the adoption of cloud applications and software platforms at enterprise scale. The combination of Cognizant's application engineering expertise and industry knowledge, together with Pivotal Cloud Foundry®, will enable large businesses to rapidly deploy critical cloud-based applications and infrastructure.

Building on a collaboration that began in 2015 to modernize software platforms for many of the world's best-known brands, Cognizant and Pivotal are deepening their relationship and investing significant resources to help enterprise clients build and operate cloud applications and services at scale. Advantages of building and running applications in the cloud include increased automation, efficiency, agility, security, resiliency and lower costs.

In expanding their strategic alliance, Cognizant will license technologies from Pivotal and gain access to unique resources associated with Pivotal's Platform Acceleration Lab. Cognizant will also train a significant number of consultants and customers on Pivotal's leading cloud-native re-platforming approach.

Cognizant's global Digital Business capabilities will be integrated with Pivotal's market-leading software development methodology, enabling clients to accelerate their digital transformation journey with rapid application portfolio migration and cloud-native platform development at scale.

@DevOpsSummit at Cloud Expo, taking place November 12-13 in New York City, NY, is co-located with 22nd international CloudEXPO | first international DXWorldEXPO and will feature technical sessions from a rock star conference faculty and the leading industry players in the world.
Without lifecycle traceability and visibility across the tool chain, stakeholders from Planning-to-Ops have limited insight and answers to who, what, when, why and how across the DevOps lifecycle. This impacts the ability to deliver high quality software at the needed velocity to drive positive business outcomes. In his general session at @DevOpsSummit at 19th Cloud Expo, Eric Robertson, General Manager at CollabNet, will discuss how customers are able to achieve a level of transparency that enables everyone from Planning-to-Ops to make informed decisions based on business priority and leverage automation to accelerate identifying issues and fast fix to drive continuous feedback and KPI insight.
More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smart's sake," and many brands remain in that corner. But many brands are also gradually opting for more strategic approaches. They're taking a breath and stepping back to examine both existing and potential IoT experiences, asking themselves whether their products lend real value. Once we reach this goal, the implications for personalization are staggering. Consumers will expect devices they use and i...
We all know that end users experience the internet primarily with mobile devices. From an app development perspective, we know that successfully responding to the needs of mobile customers depends on rapid DevOps – failing fast, in short, until the right solution evolves in your customers' relationship to your business. Whether you’re decomposing an SOA monolith, or developing a new application cloud natively, it’s not a question of using microservices - not doing so will be a path to eventual business failure. The real and more difficult question, in developing microservices-based applications, is this: What's the best combination of cloud services and tools to use to get the right results in the specific business situation in which you need to deliver what your end users’ want. Considering that new streams of IoT data are already raising the stakes on what end users expect in their mo...
