Waste Management dumps legacy processes, drives digital change | CIO
We saw a spike of over 70% points for our new monthly bill-pay option. In the past, we’ve said that monthly billing is not convenient for us, but our customers told us that’s what they want. When we gave it to them, they rewarded us with an auto bill-pay rate that spiked, which is important because autopay is a leading indicator of how long a customer will stay with us. We saw a 40% jump in ecommerce revenue almost overnight. We are now levering those learnings in our commercial markets.

Silicon Valley software techniques modernize 75-year-old plant
Raytheon Systems Engineer Sam Sauers and her team spearheaded one of the latest DevOps transformations on the program, introducing Silicon Valley-like processes like paired programming and pipeline development to help the Air Soldier team rapidly develop the technology.

“We’re using commercial software best practices, including Agile and DevOps, to get new capabilities in days instead of years,” said Sauers. “We’ve also been implementing user-centered design: getting ahead of the users and figuring out the next thing they’re going to need. We then develop toward that rather than getting something out there and getting feedback that it wasn’t what they wanted.”

AT&T’s ‘Public-Cloud First’ Proclamation a Stake in the Ground
For AT&T to now start the process of adopting the public cloud for what are admittedly “non-network applications” is a big move. It shows that even the most stodgy industry verticals are on board with moving to the public cloud. This will provide a significant new revenue stream for those cloud providers but at the same time allow for greater scale that could drive down pricing models.

Camera scanning vehicles result in big jump in parking fines
Before Amsterdam started using scanning vehicles in 2013, the Dutch capital issued 18.5 million euros in parking fines. Last year Amsterdam issued nearly 30 million euros in parking fines, an increase of 61 percent. Before using scanning vehicles, Rotterdam issued 177,895 parking fines in 2014. In 2016 that increased by 86 percent to 330,326, before dropping by 6 percent to 310,684 in 2017. AD did not receive more recent figures from Rotterdam.

Delft saw a 26 percent increase in paring fines, Utrecht saw an increase of 17.5 percent. In The Hague, the parking fines increased by half. Tilburg told the newspaper that its issued fines tripled since it started using scanning vehicles.

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.

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.”

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.

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.

Using the decentralized, assertion verification system in blockchain stuff to keep track of insurance policies across geographic and company boundries:

“The distributed ledger is a permanent, secure tool that makes it easier to create cost-efficient business networks without requiring a centralized point of control. With distributed ledgers, virtually anything of value can be tracked and traded,” the foundation said in a 2015 statement. “Distributed ledger systems today are being built in a variety of industries, but to realize the promise of this emerging technology, an open source and collaborative development strategy that supports multiple players in multiple industries is required. This development can enable the adoption of blockchain technology at a pace and depth not achievable by any one company or industry.”

The architecture amounts to a platform of modular and standardized parts, including VMware virtualization, the Cloud Foundry infrastructure as a service orchestration from Pivotal Software, Red Hat Linux, and hardware from EMC, Dell and Cisco, among other components. Nothing is added to the platform unless it's already industry proven, rather than the agency adopting an emerging technology and then trying to prove its worth by itself, Haga said."
