DevOps Agility for the Cloud Native Era

As specialist web site defines: “Platform engineering is the discipline of designing and building toolchains and workflows that enable self-service capabilities for software engineering organizations in the cloud-native era.”

Gartner expects that by 2026, 80% of software engineering organizations will establish platform teams as internal providers of reusable services, components and tools for application delivery.
Notably this is headlined by ‘IDPs’ – Internal Developer Platforms: “An IDP consists of many different techs and tools, glued together in a way that lowers cognitive load on developers without abstracting away context and underlying technologies.”

Platform teams support this by delivering shared services across each layer of cloud infrastructure, helping product teams innovate and iterate at speed.

Our ebook offers a practical blueprint for adopting an Enterprise Platform strategy, through documenting keynote case studies such as the HMRC’s Multi-channel Digital Tax Platform, and implementation guides for vendors like Microsoft Azure.
