CF Killed the ITSM Star - Kyle Campos, CSAA Insurance
The enterprise change process is filled with tickets, approvals and all forms of non-deterministic change review and time wasting gates that dominate the ITSM landscape. Cloud Foundry has thrown a monkey wrench into ITSM in the form of high velocity change via CI/CD and a healthy embrace of the DevOps "automate all the things" mantra.

Our DevOps and PCF platform leader, Kyle Campos, will talk about how we at CSAA are raising the quality and security bars of the platform even as deployment velocity increases through infrastructure and application CI/CD pipelines and how automation can serve the ITSM overlords through higher levels of determinism.

Concourse All of the Things at All Times - Jason Immerman, Zipcar & Derek Van Assche, HS2 Solutions
How do large engineering organisations build reliable and well-defined processes to help dev teams get their work to production?

Zipcar answered this question by replacing a patchwork of semi-automated and manual testing, approval and deployment processes with a series of autonomous pipelines powered by the powerful and supremely flexible continuous integration/delivery system "Concourse".

Concourse allowed Zipcar to move from a tightly controlled weekly release cycle to a loose peer-reviewed process allowing 100+ applications to be tested, integrated and deployed on a continuous basis.

This presentation will focus on the real world experience of automating creation of well-tested deployable artifacts (in Zipcar's case, docker images, ready to be deployed into a diego-based infrastructure) and the tactics that can be employed in coordinating and expressing dependencies between applications that are managed according to their own autonomous schedules. It will discuss the limitations and constraints of pipelined integration testing and will suggest several approaches to overcoming them.

Transforming a Bank with a Highly-Opinionated Automated Release Pipeline - Reid Levesque, Royal Bank of Canada
Can development teams focus on developing business logic while avoiding the bureaucratic jungle to get to production? Microservices are great at speeding up development time and shortening the feedback loop -- unless every team has to build a pipeline from scratch. In an organization used to monthly or quarterly releases, moving to daily or hourly deployments requires more than a change in application architecture.

This session will cover how we’ve automated all the things while still giving developers the freedom to be successful.

From Big Data to Global Lean Application Platform - Our Journey to Cloud Foundry - Olivier Brun, Orange & Alexandre Vasseur, Pivotal
Orange Group has mandate to setup large innovative solutions to support all countries and business needs. It covers platform think, build and run both as one central or several country level instantiations while keeping homogeneity and reducing costs and snowflakes.

As part of a global cloud native transformation across Orange countries, businesses and IT teams - OLAF Orange Lean Application Facilities was launched and encompasses topics from CI/CD developer ecosystem tools to actual big data, NoSQL and cloud native platform.

Adopting Cloud Foundry as a part of it immediately made sense - as long as the underlying larger strategic streams could be mapped for the long term:
- developer onboarding and project facilitation for several thousands of them
- rich catalog of service with a mix of build, buy & integrate strategy
- operational excellence for keeping the platform and apps running at scale on private cloud
- vendor neutrality and skill center development
- innovation acceleration for cloud native, microservices and container-first architecture
- simple rollout of a reference architecture at global scale

Come hear about our journey to start and measure success in transforming Orange Group how we leveraged and expanded the specifics of Pivotal Cloud Foundry, Pivotal DOJOs implementation approach and the Cloud Foundry partner ecosystem to rollout OLAF with developer-efficiency, secure-first, global-ready and automate-everything core goals in our design.

Turning Multi-cloud Deployments into Useful Events - Andy Lowe, Allstate
Modern CI/CD pipelines should be automatically deploying to your CF environment on commit. If you have multiple foundries, coordinating deploys across them can be a problem, especially if something fails. Deployadactyl is an open source tool for doing multi-cloud blue-green deploys with rollback to ensure zero-downtime deployments. Learn how Allstate uses this tool for thousands of deployments each month. Deployadactyl’s internal event model allowed us to add security and reporting checks into each deploy. This improved our compliance controls and lowered our security risks while simplifying the deployment process for our development teams. All this combines to allow our development teams to spend time focused on their product and less time focused on infrastructure.

Cloud-Native Data: Getting to the “X” factors of Cloud Native Data - Dormain Drewitz & Paul Puckett, Pivotal, Stephen O’Grady, Redmonk, Mark Ardito, HCSC & Brian Dunlap, Southwest Airlines
Twelve-Factor App manifesto is arguably missing a key piece – data. There is no guidance for how to architect the data layer. Yet, we know how tremendously important data is to an application and an organization. We all have lots of data. What can we do to enable Cloud Native Data Manifesto to enable a DevOps model for data?

Discussions around the principles and the lack of proper data education is key to industry progress in being cloud native. If we can bridge this cloud native divide the possibilities for the enterprise are enormous. Those holding on to legacy applications due to massive data constraints could simplify and become cloud native.

Building on a panel held at SpringOne Platform 2017, this panel brings together perspectives from users (Timmy Richardson, Brian Dunlap and Mark Ardito), and industry observers (Steve O’Grady). Moderated by Dormain Drewitz, this panel will hone in on defining a set of “factors” for cloud-native data.
