A Window Into Discover’s Cloud-Native Transformation

Thirty leaders charged with driving digital transformation inside their organizations recently joined us for a roundtable discussion on cloud-native development over breakfast at Mission Hills Country Club in Northbrook. With featured speakers from Discover Financial, Pivotal, and Solstice, the event saw attendees from companies in varying stages of leveraging cloud technology —  like Crate & Barrel, Rockwell, Northern Trust, and Allstate — who shared stories and best practices around cloud in the enterprise.  

Keynote speaker Sheila Lodhia, VP of Digital Development at Discover Financial, engaged the audience with the story of Discover’s digital transformation over the past five years. 

Together with CTO of Solstice's Cloud Practice, Mike Koleno, she explored how Discover scaled transformation across the organization, shared key culture and operational changes along the way, and discussed how cloud-native architecture played a critical role throughout the journey.

Rounding out the session, Mike also led a discussion with Peter Sullivan, Manager of Platform Architecture at Pivotal, about six cloud-native trends impacting the enterprise, from Pivotal Cloud Foundry and Kubernetes to DevOps and reactive programming. You can take a deeper dive into these trends here.
