Using an internal platform to automate DevOps workflows and improve developer productivity has increasingly become mainstream. According to Puppet’s 2021 DevOps report, 63% of teams are using at least one internal platform. But most of these platforms end up as half baked solutions with low adoption across the org. There are many reasons for this. Chris and Christobal, leading consultants at ThoughtWorks, will present their learnings about the platform execution gap, recently published on martinfowler.com.
We are excited to discuss the following key points with them:
- What are the prerequisites to build an internal platform?
- How do you evaluate the business value of an internal platform?
- How do you set up a successful platform team?
- How can you get buy-in and high adoption of the platform?
After a 30 minutes talk, there will be 15 minutes for Q&A. We’d like to encourage you to submit your questions in advance.
A recording of the webinar and related materials will be shared with webinar attendees afterwards.
