World Wide Technology and Pivotal Launch Strategic Alliance to Help Customers Accelerate the Development of Cloud-Native Applications

World Wide Technology, Inc. (WWT), a market-leading technology integrator, announced today that it has entered into a strategic alliance with Pivotal, the company accelerating digital transformation for enterprises. Today's enterprise customers are accelerating their adoption of cloud technology to address digital transformation in their organization. The alliance will help customers address the culture, process, and technology requirements necessary for cloud-native application development.

"WWT is proud to team up with Pivotal as they are a leader in giving development teams the tools they need to move at the speed of their business," said WWT's Vice President of Business Development and Innovation Bob Olwig. "By using Pivotal Cloud Foundry, our customers are able to iteratively create innovative software that drives business outcomes."

At the center of this alliance is a joint understanding that a customer's journey starts with choosing the right applications to build or re-platform to the cloud, based on realized business value. As a result, the ability to drive cultural, organizational, and technology changes, at cloud speed, is critical to customer success.

"Our partnership is focused on helping our customers realize business value by building modern software at cloud speed and scale," said Nick Cayou, vice president, Global Alliances at Pivotal. "With the pace of change and disruption being faced by enterprises today, companies must change how they deliver software and data to remain innovative and competitive."

WWT is migrating its own internal IT systems to support cloud-native application development from open source to Pivotal Cloud Foundry. Pivotal Cloud Foundry's capabilities enhance developer productivity, enable operational excellence, and provide enterprise security, scalability, high availability and operational control. This showcase will be a tremendous asset to demonstrate best practices and digital outcomes for customers visiting WWT's Advanced Technology Center.

As part of the Pivotal Ready Partner Program, both companies will work together to enable our customers' transition to modern software development enterprises. With the Pivotal Ready Partner Program, Pivotal's global ecosystem will play a critical role in helping customers make the transition to a modern, digital enterprise. This alliance will focus on developing joint solution offerings for new cloud application development, platform operations and legacy application re-platforming. As a result, joint customers will experience accelerated cloud application development, new routes to revenue, cost savings, and risk reduction of legacy estates.
