On his podcast Nicholas Chaillan chats with Jyoti Bansal, CEO of Harness, the “Elon Musk of Cloud Native”.
They discuss the developer experience, how security plays into CI/CD, how Harness became the fastest CI capability on the planet, and also how to help organizations manage their cloud costs, Chaos Engineering, and the challenges we are facing in this current economy.
Writing on Linkedin Jyoti expands on this, describing how enterprises face a significant challenge, and also opportunity, that of developer inefficiency.
Strangely enough this is an issue that hasn’t yet been tackled in a meaningful way, but Jyoti believes there is a fresh perspective on the challenge and a wave of new innovations and best practices are now increasingly being applied to address the situation and unleash higher magnitudes of developer productivity.
Notably this is headlined by Platform Engineering, and the rise of ‘IDPs’ – Internal Developer Platforms:
In simplified terms, think of this as the difference between DOS and Windows. Instead of laboriously creating environments, good IDPs give developers a premade set of tools, processes and services. These platforms will be newly relevant as companies look to cut costs, and they’ll also become more robust and turnkey.
