Customer Spotlights at AnsibleFest 2020

AnsibleFest 2020 will be here before we know it, and we cannot wait to connect with everyone in October. We have some great content lined up for this year's virtual experience and that includes some amazing customer spotlights. This year you will get to hear from CarMax, Blue Cross Blue Shield of NC, T-Mobile, and Cepsa. These customers are using Ansible in a variety of ways, and we hope you connect to their incredible stories of teamwork and transformative automation.

Customer Spotlights

Benjamin Blizard, a Network Engineer at T-Mobile, will explore how T-Mobile transformed from a disparate organization with difficulty enforcing standards to a collaborative group of engineers working from repeatable templates and processes. T-Mobile, a major telecommunications provider, uses Ansible Automation Platform to standardize processes across their organization. Ben will show how automation supports T-Mobile's compliance standards, data integrity, and produces speed and efficiency for network teams. 

Peter Bojovic, Director of Systems Engineering at Blue Cross Blue Shield of North Carolina, will talk about how they used automation to drive down costs in managed service costs while increasing productivity. Blue Cross NC, a leading health insurance provider, recently implemented a new tool to automate provisioning of their virtual machines for critical on-premise applications.

Members of Blue Cross NC's deployment team will also speak on a panel interview setup, featuring: Tobin Shay, Alex Devirgilis and Pavan Mutyala. They will discuss their recent experiences using automation to handle a large-scale migration and the future of automation at Blue Cross NC. The interview will also touch on how a large organization works to decrease a reliance on managed services, and the planning and processes that lead to a projected 16-week project being completed in just three business days.
