Just as consumer-facing web giants such as Google and Facebook have done, enterprise companies increasingly need to store and analyze massive amounts of data cost-effectively, ingest huge numbers of events in real time, reason over the data, and react rapidly. To meet this need, Pivotal will host a live streaming event on April 24th with a special announcement and an unveiling of its plans to build a platform that makes the consumer grade enterprise a reality.

Billed as "A New Platform for a New Era", the Pivotal platform will unite data, application, and cloud fabrics. Prioritizing big and fast data, agile development, and cloud independence, the Pivotal platform will enable enterprises to understand more, react quicker, build smarter, and achieve at an even greater scale. To this end, the new company brings together a prodigious set of technologies and talent from a number of EMC and VMware entities, which include Greenplum, Cloud Foundry, Spring, GemFire and other products from the VMware vFabric Suite, Cetas, and Pivotal Labs.

Paul Maritz, the Pivotal Leadership Team, and special guests will unveil this platform, and make a special announcement during a live streaming event on Wednesday, April 24th at 10:00 am Pacific/1:00 pm Eastern. Sign up for the event at gopivotal.com and follow @gopivotal on Twitter for updates.
