Comic Relief switched from multi-cloud to serverless with AWS and saw a 93% cost reduction
As a team, going serverless has given us a lot more velocity, we can rapidly release, we can test the same infrastructure we’re deploying in production, in a pull request environment, in a staging environment, we can rapidly retest ideas- and every developer can do that because we’re using Lambda to load test, so the power it gives you as a developer and engineering team is pretty amazing.

DBS banks on data to know what customers want before they themselves know
> DBS built its API platform on Pivotal Cloud Foundry, which enabled it to upgrade or update the system without any downtime, Soh said, adding that the bank's marketplace is also built on Pivotal. Plans also are underway to migrate DBS' mobile wallet, PayLah, to the Pivotal development platform.


> "Less than 40 percent of my team's focus is on keeping the lights on [and] we spend a lot of effort reducing such [tasks]. We want everything to be automated [so] we're more focused on [actually] changing the bank and improving things."

And some example use cases.

HSBC chief architect: Why machine learning is accelerating cloud adoption
If you build it, you own it, big data ed.:

> “We got some value out of that but to be honest we found it hard to keep on top of, just hard to build skills at the pace required to integrate new technologies,” Knott says.

> “No matter how hard we ran there is always something new coming in that we wanted to get access to, but we couldn’t get there quite fast enough to have really finished deploying what we were deploying previously.

> “So it was hard to manage, hard to keep on top of, and also hard to scale. We had reasonable success but we were having these challenges.”

Also, it mentioned that they use Pivotal Cloud Foundry.

Mission capability delivered at startup speed
More coverage of the US Air Force going all in on digital XP, lean design, and cloud native to dramatically - almost unbelievably so - modernize their software.

> The mission capabilities these war fighters received in 120 days or less span deliberate targeting, mission reporting, advanced target production, refueling operations and many more, saving over $6.4 million and 1,100 man-hours per month within the Air Force Central Command.


> Embracing agile software development processes, the AOC leverages a highly disciplined approach to software engineering called Extreme Programming (XP), to gain the benefits of test-driven development, pair programming, continuous integration and continuous delivery (CI/CD).

Cloud Foundry Cult
Owen covers CF Summit Basel:

> “The users we spoke with didn't just see it as a PaaS – it was the underlying philosophy of application delivery and management upon which future developments would be based. The Foundation claims Cloud Foundry saves, on average, 10 weeks of development time and $100,000 per app development cycle. In fact, in its own survey, 92% of users cite cross-platform flexibility as important. If these panelists are gaining such benefits, it's easy to understand why they are so enamored with it.”

PCF and New Relic at West
“Thomas said he plans to migrate hundreds of existing applications to Pivotal Cloud Foundry, which will also serve as the standard platform-of-excellence for all new applications. New Relic will ensure reliability, availability, and performance of those workloads as well as enable West’s ops team to monitor Pivotal Cloud Foundry itself.”

The Air Force Will Treat Computer Coding Like a Foreign Language
> For example, when Defense Innovation Unit went to air operations centers in Middle East, the defense tech expert envisioned software changes that would optimize the way that airmen tracked refueling tankers. Teaming up with a commercial firm in Boston called Pivotal Labs, the new software is saving about $200,000 in fuel every month.

It's usually reported at $200,000 a day.

Mostly, though, lots of AI talk:

> During Operation Inherent Resolve, he led 1,800 Air Component Commander analysts to create the first-ever visualization of millions of data points from sources including unmanned aerial vehicles and open-source streams. That reduced 1.5 hours of daily target development to five minutes. He also provided intelligence support to the fight against ISIS that increased deliberate (i.e. pre-planned) target development by 68 percent.

How Companies are Saving Millions with Pivotal Cloud Foundry
"A recent Forrester study commissioned by Pivotal which analyzed the benefits PCF customers see when adopting the platform found that developers gain 50 percent more coding hours a week. How? The automation and self-service features of Pivotal Cloud Foundry decrease manual and mundane deployment tasks. Wait times for environment setup and code to be prompted to production are also significantly reduced... That 50 percent gain in coding hours led to more releases per year, speeding up release schedules from once every two months to once a week — and sometimes even daily. Forrester estimates this increase in productivity equates to more than $31 million over three years, while the reduction in DevOps time allocated to provisioning, patching and scaling across multiple clouds at almost $6 million."

Also, Rackspace has a managed Pivotal Cloud Foundry service.

Air Force looks to rapidly develop software with Project Kessel Run
More coverage of the USAF modernizing their approach to software. Here, what some of the apps are: “Kessel Run has been able to push five applications to the classified network, Kroger said.... The project is currently working on a number of things, including how the Air Force plans air tasking orders, a document which tasks units to fly their aircraft, Kroger said. It’s also working on building a tool that automates mission reports, which have to be written for every mission that flies, Kroger said.”

Innovation at the edge: the top air defence trends by domain
"Software company Pivotal, backed by Dell EMC, VMWare, GE, Microsoft and Ford, has developed a tanker refuelling solution for the USAF with the US Defense Innovation Unit Experimental (DIUx); Running on the firm’s Pivotal Cloud Foundry platform, the software solution was built for under $2m in 90 days and is now being used in operational areas including Qatar. It currently saves the US Air Force $1 million per day in fuel costs, with the software being managed by just one person. It also aligns with USAF’s Air Operations Centre (AOC) capabilities via a continuous delivery software development pipeline to a hybrid cloud-based platform alongside the legacy AOC 10.1 system."

How Insurance Giant Allstate Is Using Cloud Tech to Build New Businesses
“When you’re an 86-year-old company things have done a certain way, there are rules in place because of what someone did 10 years ago,” says Opal Perry, vice president and divisional chief information officer of claims for Allstate. “Now, instead of a 200-person team, you have small six- and eight-person teams working on things. It unleashes creativity.”

In the past, many enterprise software projects required millions of dollars, and even sign-off by the CEO. “By the time you got permission, ideas died,” explains Perry. “Now a senior manager has $50,000 or $100,000 to do a minimum viable product.”

Success: "The Good Hands Rescue Network digital platform was launched in August 2016. Since then, we have seen a revenue lift in the tens of millions that is likely to grow to the hundreds of millions."

Business value/metrics: "After a year, we are averaging around 25,000 rescues a month… With the end-to-end digital process of the request, response and time to arrive, we are seeing an average actual time of arrival (ATA) at 27 minutes, which has reduced the wait time by almost half. This is consistent with our primary objective of reducing the amount of time a motorist is stranded."
