New Delhi, India, February 20, 2015: Pivotal, the creators of Cloud Foundry, has announced record worldwide growth in 2014 in customer adoption and sales of Pivotal Cloud Foundry. Pivotal is fundamentally changing the dynamics of cloud adoption and utility with its industry-leading open cloud platform, bringing the agility and resilience of the architectures pioneered building large-scale web applications to every enterprise.
In less than a year, Pivotal Cloud Foundry has booked ~$40 million in software sales and secured a customer portfolio of top global brands and local brands which have chosen Pivotal Cloud Foundry for Internet of Things (IoT) build outs. This significant uptake in Fortune 100/500 customers across every industry has made Pivotal Cloud Foundry the fastest growing open source product ever.
Similar to global trends, Pivotal Cloud Foundry in Asia Pacific has also achieved significant commercial migration, especially with large businesses in the automotive, banking, education and retail industries.
Enterprises are shifting to agile development to build new applications and software, provide better digital experiences to their customers and find new industrial efficiencies. To make these agile transformations, customers are requiring an open cloud platform that can deliver new customer experiences quickly and at-scale, something often impeded by the complexity of deploying, upgrading, and operating their applications with legacy systems and processes.
GE, Phillips and Other Top Enterprises Turn to Pivotal
GE’s intensified focus on software and analytics has been grounded in its simple, yet pervasive, vision for the Industrial Internet. A connected network of intelligent machines – both GE & others – working the way they are intended – on schedule, reliably, efficiently, safely and securely – creating an outcome economy. Few companies have the capacity to unify machines, software, analytics, and data to take full advantage of this productivity revolution. To facilitate progress and to address the technology challenges, GE’s partnership with Pivotal is bringing together industry-tested knowledge of customers’ needs, the complex language of machines, agile development, Pivotal Cloud Foundry, and the Predix® software platform for the Industrial Internet. Together, they form a place for all machines to plug in and share data for maximizing asset performance management.
An industrial giant known for its lighting products, Philips has committed to growing its digital healthcare offerings. Frustrated by its legacy systems’ lack of scalability and flexibility, Philips chose Pivotal Cloud Foundry to power its new HealthSuite Digital Platform. Pivotal Cloud Foundry allowed fast access to data from both the cloud and on premise, increased flexibility for agile development, and provided a cloud-agnostic design, allowing Philips to choose cloud platforms that best suited its needs. By building the HealthSuite Digital Platform on Pivotal Cloud Foundry, Philips was able to quickly and efficiently introduce new services and pricing models, inviting new revenue streams and growing its opportunities in new markets.
Leading provider of consumer, financial and property information, analytics and services to business and government, CoreLogic, recognized the need to take a fresh look at its IT strategy and the technology that drove its business.
