This session will describe the injection of cloud innovation into Mercedes-Benz’s Silicon Valley Innovation Lab. As an Innovation Architect, Joe Leaver’s role is to be a startup scout for Mercedes-Benz North America’s Research & Development, using the best of what he finds to empower the engineers working on the Lab’s innovations in autonomous driving, advanced UX design, connected car, telematics, e-mobility, and more.

He will describe why single-vendor, single-cloud solutions don’t work for a company of Mercedes-Benz’s scale. While many of their projects must be on private cloud, they also need to be positioned for hybrid cloud. In all cases, they must give their engineers a frictionless experience in provisioning what they need, such as 1-click Docker clouds. They must also ensure not falling prey to lock-in. Cloud composition enabled the innovation they need, a process he will describe, including how it simultaneously preserves developer freedom and provides management with the visibility and control they need.
