Companies large and small, and across all industries, are simultaneously recognizing the imperative and threat of change.  They acknowledge that this change must be absolute, and enable delivery of product to the street faster and allowing continuous enhancements to product for maximum market responsiveness.  Yet the transformation of a company with a storied 90-year history like Allstate occurs on a different path than younger 5-10 year old companies. 

What drives this transformation?  For starters, the change of IT from a mentality of "We are technology for the business" to "We are technology driving the business", which must carefully consider many factors, including culture and personnel, in addition to available technology.  Over the last 5 years, technologies have evolved in a way that make this transition more critical than ever: companies who are able to evolve at speed are winning, while those that are approaching change methodically are getting passed at every turn, not just by old competitors but by new entrants to the market.  Technology lowers the barriers of entry such that the ability to connect disparate services, systems, and companies to produce something viable is the only pre-requisite to filling, and dominating, a market need.  Find out more about the vision that Allstate Insurance aims to achieve, powered by Cloud Foundry.
