Unwinding Folklore to Modernize at Northern Trust with Len Hardy

September 24, 2019 Dormain Drewitz

While many organizations *want* to use the public cloud, they aren't in a position to do so. With applications written decades ago and an offshoring strategy, companies need to invest in re-engineering applications for the cloud era. This is where Northern Trust found itself a couple years ago. 
In this podcast, you'll hear how Northern Trust began to modernize core software and build new functionality according to 12 Factor principles. You'll hear how they worked closely with Pivotal and Solstice to adopt agile and a cloud-native application platform, which now supports 600 developers. You'll also hear how they included compliance and risk teams at the financial institution into the automation process.
To hear more from the Northern Trust team, come to SpringOne Platform in Austin, Texas October 7-10 where you can hear from Pradeep Sadhu, Vice President responsible for application transformation at Northern Trust.
