The GitOps Guide to Building & Managing Internal Platforms
In our most recent white paper “The GitOps guide to building and managing internal platforms” we uncover the delivery of a self-service developer experience. In order to improve overall organizational productivity and development velocity, there is a growing emphasis on the developer experience team and how they collaborate with the platform team.
According to the State of DevOps report in 2020 and 2021, in high maturity DevOps organizations, a standout trait is the presence of two types of teams:
1. Stream-aligned teams, and
2. Platform teams.
Stream-aligned is another term for application development teams.
Platform teams, on the other hand, exist to support application development teams and make resources available to them whenever needed. Thus, the report shows that adopting the internal development platform approach is a successful model prevalent in high performance DevOps teams. However, this is a new concept that many organizations need to learn before they master.
Our most recent white paper addresses this vital topic that DevOps teams looking to reach higher levels of maturity need to pay attention to.
