This week, while at SpringOne Platform, Richard and I talk with Josh McKenty, head of the partnering engineering team. With a general purpose application stack like Pivotal Cloud Foundry there’s a lot of partner applications, services, and consulting that typically gets used beyond what Pivotal provides out of the box. Josh’s team does the implementation with partners around these extensions and service integrator partnerships. We discuss how the program works, why it’s needed, different modes of operating with partners (from agile to Gantt-planned out waterfall style), why an ecosystem is needed, and how service integrators fit in. Since Josh has worked on OpenControl we slip in an overview and update of that compliance automation framework. Don’t forget to follow Josh on Twitter: @jmckenty.
