Building the Foundation for Growth
Two years ago when Daniel Otte, Head of Platform Engineering, and Simon Johansson, Platform Engineer at Springer Nature, chose Cloud Foundry platform-as-a-service (PaaS) as the foundation for global application deployment, little did they know that this decision would be a harbinger of huge transformations. May 2015 marked the final approval of the merger that formed Springer Nature, a transaction that combined Nature Publishing Group, Palgrave Macmillan, Macmillan Education and Springer Science+Business Media. This merger grew the company to almost 13,000 staff in over 50 countries. Today, Springer Nature is a major force in scientific, scholarly, professional and educational publishing.
