Exploring Data-Driven, Cognitive Capabilities in Pivotal Cloud Foundry
Data is the new gold and PaaS solutions like PCF are an abundant source of this increasingly-important resource. This talk will demonstrate the immense value available from a reference architecture designed for surfacing proactive, cognitive-like capabilities from data in the PCF logging firehose. The tech stack consists of a transactional, in-memory layer coupled to an analytical data warehouse. The result: shorter developer debugging cycles, insights like "What are the most common Java classes in my stack traces?", and a dynamic, visual microservice dependency graph. Each of these examples serves to introduce powerful feedback into application and platform lifecycles, improving an organization's productivity and infrastructure resiliency and even security.
