What is a self-service developer platform and why does it matter?
Why developers need a self-service platform – and how to provide one
DevOps disrupted the software development process by tearing down the siloed approach and bringing together developers and ops teams with a singular purpose: building quality applications fast. Organizations quickly shifted and released software faster than the traditional method until they hit a snag.
While DevOps normalized developers' and operators' collaboration, it wasn’t smooth. Scaling applications and releasing new features was turning out to be a challenge. Developers were at the receiving end of the blurring of lines between these two departments. The developer experience took a hit. Today, GitOps promises a better approach to software delivery that puts developer experience front and center. That’s the focus of our newest whitepaper.
Improving developer experience for enhanced output
Developer experience (DX) is a critical aspect of software development. This is especially true for cloud-native applications. And from the frustration of developers rose the brilliant concept of a ‘self-service platform.’ It is the practice of providing developers with customizable components to accelerate their journey from concept to code to production.
Gartner predicted that 9 out of 10 organizations would fail to scale their DevOps practice if they didn’t adopt a self-service approach. The research firm quoted,
“The goal of self-service is to ensure developers have an experience that makes ‘the right thing to do, the intuitive thing to do.”
The self-service platform gives developers autonomy in the process and significantly reduces their dependence on the ops team for resource provisioning. Companies have seen a great uptick in productivity and efficiency of the development team with an internal developer platform.
But the million-dollar question here is, how do you make a great developer experience?
