The Complexity to “Yes” in Analytics Software and the Possibilities with Docker and Containers

When you have to say ""YES"" to everything, what does that really mean?

The Boston Consulting Group (BCG) is a global management consulting firm that advises industry leading companies on value creation strategies, innovation, transformation, supply chain management and much more. BCG provides recommendations and analytics that are custom tailored to the needs of each client. To do this BCG is transforming what used to be presentations and manual models into software that is prototyped and distributed to their client to run on their infrastructure - in effect changing the way BCG delivers value.

However the productization process poses unique challenges and opportunities. Their clients have every type of infrastructure and application stack within their IT environments, how can BCG ensure that the custom built analytics applications will operate well at scale in their client's production environment - especially when it is an environment that they don't control? The bespoke nature of the BCG business led the team to embark on an engineering led journey to containerization with Docker. Attend this session to learn more about the approach, challenges and how BCG is enabling transformation with Docker Enterprise Edition.
