Project Gaia: How We are Transforming Technology at JPMorgan Chase [B] - Matthew Liste & Bryn Worgan, JPMorgan Chase
Three years ago, we were given a mission: “Go forth and change the way that we enable our 40,000 strong technology division at the bank to deliver business value; make it frictionless, make it fast, make it cheap”. Thus “Project Gaia” was born, and we embarked upon a journey of building out cloud services for our developers, leveraging best-in-class technology platforms. Last March, we delivered an enterprise-grade private cloud into production built on Cloud Foundry and other core technologies, and have seen massive interest and ramp-up from our developers. The success of Gaia was a key driver for the bank adopting a ‘cloud-first’ approach, enabling significant developer productivity. This talk will cover our journey over the last three years, the underpinning technologies that we’ve leveraged, the details of how we use Cloud Foundry, the challenges we have faced, and our future direction.

Comcast Cloud Foundry Journey - Part 2 - Greg Otto, Comcast
It is hard to believe that Comcast is on the third year of our Cloud Foundry Journey! Our platform has scaled 490% in 2016 and has enabled development teams to improve productivity and time-to-market by as much as 75%! However, this is yesterday's news and our developers want more. Our focus has shifted to engaging closer with the developer community, expanding the platform by creating new capabilities and contributing back to the open source community, all with less than a handful of resources! Come talk to us about our lessons learned, how we’ve tapped into the passions of our developer community, our strategy for changing our focus to expand the platform to deliver even more services and business value! All of this while still keeping the lights on.

How Intel IT Used Cloud Foundry and Open Source Technology to Break the Grip of Proprietary Vendor Mobile Platforms - Dan Crook, Intel
Mobilizing applications has been an Intel IT goal over the past several years. After proceeding down the path of vendor provided mobile application platforms, IT decided to move in a different strategic direction and build out a custom mobile application platform utilizing Cloud Foundry and Open Source technologies. The resulting platform has reduced the costs to Intel IT, simplified the hardware landscape, while at the same time providing a more agile way for developing and provisioning mobile applications at Intel.

Building Security Frameworks Into Your CI/CD Pipelines [I] - Nathan Gibson & David Brock, Allstate Insurance
Allstate is a company that puts extreme value in the trust that is given by their customers. This means taking all measures available to ensure that all customer information is protected. In addition, being in the insurance industry puts them under a significant amount of regulatory compliance requirements. Safeguarding this trust continues to become challenging in the world today where traditional security controls are no longer effective against the advanced persistent threats that organizations face.

In this session, Allstate will discuss the approach that we have taken to bring security to the right levels to ensure we protect our customer’s assets. It starts with a “secure by design” approach that is integrated into our extreme agile practices across the multiple layers of our technology stack.

We leverage a natively securely architecture for our platform infrastructure. Cloud Foundry provides us with unprecedented capabilities in providing some native security attributes and secure operational practices for all applications hosted. We leverage tools to continuously audit the infrastructure, supplementing the practices that the open source community do to secure and harden the platform.

We add another layer of continuous audit by integrating static and dynamic code analysis into our continuous integration pipelines. Cloud Foundry provides us with a platform that allows us to direct our assets and inspection to a well scoped threat area for hosted apps. In addition, it provides us with the ability to consistently and reliably do security related analysis, and enables us to confidently deploy to production knowing that our risk profiles do not change across environment.

Our approach of “secure by design” and “continuous audit” across all layers, coupled with the capabilities that Cloud Foundry provides, allows us to confidently assure our customers that they are in good hands.

What happens when an entire country decides to exercise your app at the same moment? How do you architect an app, platform and IaaS where a second of downtime results in thousands of pounds of missed donations.

This was the challenge we faced to support the 2017 Comic Relief charity drive. The campaign is aiming to raise over £100 million and culminates in a 7 hour BBC telethon on March 24th.

Come and hear from Comic Relief (customer), Armakuni (app developer), Pivotal (operator), and GCP (IaaS provider) talk about the challenges and solutions faced in preparing for and supporting the 2017 Comic Relief event.
