Notes:

 

  • As covered in their Cloud Foundry Summit keynote, AllState seeing the need to change with IT

  • How an enterprise like AllState is different than Silicon Valley culture.

  • How fear of Silicon Valley “marauders” drives the need to change - interestingly, high up the management people are more paranoid, but lower down, people are not so paranoid. They discuss what kind of disconnect this creates in the organization.

  • The discussion then moves to solving for this disconnect in the organization. Among other things, Matt suggests that leadership needs to create and communicate a vision and strategy.

  • Also discussion of how open source is helping AllState focus on the right things instead of building platforms.

Unleash the Chaos Lemur!!

In IT we have long worked hard to ensure that systems remain available, stable and "up". But the manner in which we achieve this outcome has changed. Gone are the days of trying to engineer failure "out of the system" - as that proved to be beyond human capability. Rather, by turning the problem on its head and accepting that failure happens - we can tolerate them better.

This means better systems, higher availability - and more sleep!

In this episode we look into a new open-source project called Chaos Lemur that can help make your systems more resilient, by testing them constantly.
