Digital Transformation at the Cloud Foundry Summit & Where to Find Us

May 7, 2015 Adam Bloom



Cloud Foundry Summit is fast approaching. Monday and Tuesday of next week, May 11th and 12th, the annual event will bring together 1,500 application developers, IT operations experts, business leaders, service providers, integrators, and Cloud Foundry contributors alongside 31 event sponsors. The two-day event will cover a broad range of topics including: cloud-native application architecture, IT transformation, DevOps, continuous delivery, private and hybrid clouds, mobile, IoT, containers, and much more.

The event will be kicked off by Cloud Foundry Foundation CEO, Sam Ramji, followed by a series of keynotes by executives from IBM, Verizon, Hewlett-Packard, SAP, EMC, Allstate, Huawei, VMware, Lockheed Martin, GE Software, Humana, and Pivotal. Six of these companies, along with Comcast, CoreLogic, Garmin, and Kroger are Pivotal customers, and will be sharing their stories, including their challenges, approaches, and outcomes. A number of Pivotal experts on Cloud Foundry are also presenting sessions. For the full list of Pivotal Cloud Foundry sessions, see the list below.

Pivotal is sponsoring the first-ever Cloud Foundry Diversity Luncheon, an event that will focus on building a more diverse, open source community. You can read more about the event and register to attend here.
