Pivotal’s customer learned that if you can’t get your products to market more quickly, the market will have changed. No matter how well the product has been developed, it’s just a little too late. Keeping up with the speed of market changes also implies that legacy applications need to adapt with matching velocity. Especially in the insurance market where disruption is a major factor.
As a member of the Cloud Foundry Foundation and a Pivotal Ready Advanced Partner, Grape Up‘s experience and agile approach to application development are well known within Pivotal. This made Grape Up the perfect candidate to help with this project. Grape is part of the Cloud Foundry community and can support different kinds of projects such as: installation of Cloud Foundry, re-platforming, modernization of existing applications and building new Cloud Native applications.
Partnering together with Pivotal, Grape Up helped to modernize and re-platform several business-critical applications to Pivotal’s Cloud Foundry platform. The biggest challenge was modernizing complex legacy applications to enable the benefits of the Cloud and to run them on PCF.
Thanks to choosing to use PCF, Pivotal’s customer can now leverage the benefits of the Cloud. Leveraging the benefits of Cloud Native applications means improved time to market and reduced operating costs. As a result of the joint effort of Pivotal and Grape Up, the customer is able to innovate at the speed of business on the insurance market.
