Chevron Corporation Analyst Notes
On April 22, 2014, Bloomberg reported that Chevron Products Company, a division of Chevron U.S.A. Inc., which is an indirect wholly-owned subsidiary of Chevron Corporation (Chevron), launched its new Chevron PitPack easy-dispense motor oil system that helps professional motor oil installers in increasing their efficiency to store and deliver oil to the customers. As per the article, the new PitPack system is capable of saving up to 89% landfill waste with the use of six-gallon plastic bags and recyclable corrugate boxes of motor oil instead of individual plastic quart bottles. This system reduces the time needed by a car in a service bay by dispensing motor oil quickly from the boxes via a High - flow, no drip tap, said the article. The Company claims that this solution will help professional installers in managing the complexity associated with the growing number of premium products (synthetics, synthetic blends, and high mileage).

WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.

In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Yoav Mor, multi-cloud solution evangelist at Cloudy...

When you focus on a journey from up-close, you look at your own technical and cultural history and how you changed it for the benefit of the customer. This was our starting point: too many integration issues, 13 SWP days and very long cycles. It was evident that in this fast-paced industry we could no longer afford this reality. We needed something that would take us beyond reducing the development lifecycles, CI and Agile methodologies. We made a fundamental difference, even changed our culture...

All organizations that did not originate this moment have a pre-existing culture as well as legacy technology and processes that can be more or less amenable to DevOps implementation. That organizational culture is influenced by the personalities and management styles of Executive Management, the wider culture in which the organization is situated, and the personalities of key team members at all levels of the organization. This culture and entrenched interests usually throw a wrench in the work...

Containers have changed the mind of IT in DevOps. They enable developers to work with dev, test, stage and production environments identically.

IoT is at the core or many Digital Transformation initiatives with the goal of re-inventing a company's business model.

However, with the rapid development of IoT devices and ongoing business model transformation, we are not able to predict the volume and growth of IoT data. And with the lack of IoT history, traditional methods of IT and infrastructure planning based on the past do not app...
