Farewell from Austin: Day 3 of SpringOne Platform

Day 3 of SpringOne Platform closed out with a bang. From insightful keynotes on digital transformation from industry leaders like JP Morgan Chase and Dick’s Sporting Goods to scootering around Austin, to game-changing breakout sessions, we’ve enjoyed our time here with you. 

We’ll be updating the SpringOne Platform 2019 site in the coming weeks with replays and photos of this year’s event so be sure to watch this space. And see you September 21-24 2020 in Seattle for next year’s SpringOne Platform! 

When A Bank’s Also a Tech Company 

How can one of the world’s largest technology companies be a bank? What seems counterintuitive is JPMorgan Chase’s reality. With over 53,000 technologists, 6500 applications, and 300,000 virtual and mobile workspaces—JPMC’s scale is no joke. 

According to Stephen Flaherty, Managing Director at JPMC—change was essential for the organization. And change they did. 

With their commitment to Spring, Spinnaker and hybrid-multi cloud, JPMorgan Chase went from 6000 deployments per month, to 6000-7000 per day and are looking to 1.2 million releases in 2019. 

Dick’s Sporting Goods' Digital Transformation Journey 

When Dick’s Sporting Goods began their journey 18 months ago they had thousands of servers in three data centers, monolithic applications, never-ending patch cycles, and when they had any features or bug fixes, the operational and long deployment cycles affected their customers directly. According to Jay Piskorik, Director of Platform Engineering at Dick’s Sporting Goods, “We always had to rely on someone else building apps for us and knowing our business better than us—which they didn’t”

Since partnering with Pivotal they’ve seen immense change in how they work. Today, Dick’s Sporting Goods is multi-cloud,  have automated their deployment, have patching done on demand, and are entirely product-focused. 

Piskorik and Sabu Thomas then did a live failover of their production search application from Google Cloud Platform to Azure on stage.
