Platform Engineering

Deliver reliable self-service toolchains and workflows for all dev teams, at scale, with observability, security, and automation.

What is Platform Engineering?

Platform Engineering is a practice that builds on internal platforms, enabling self-service capabilities for software engineering teams following a cloud-native approach. A platform encompasses a set of tools, services, and infrastructure that enables developers to build, test, deploy, and monitor software applications. These platforms are known as internal developer platforms (IDPs) and are tailored specifically to an organization's needs, demands, and goals.

Simply put, in a cloud-native world, Platform Engineering is the application of DevOps principles at scale.
