Platform engineering is the latest way to deliver application services and supports to developers in a manner that doesn't disrupt their day-to-day workflows. By building out a developer platform, environments for development, production and test can all be unified and homogenized, allowing for easier replication of issues and better observability, due to the opportunity to bake that into the platform from the start.
At OpenShift Commons Gathering, Amsterdam 2023, a panel including Josh Gavant (Red Hat), Abby Bangser (Syntasso), Raffaele Spazzoli (Red Hat), Andrew Block (Red Hat) and Thomas Vitale (Systematic) discussed the benefits of building out an internal platform for enterprises. The group also explored what platform engineering means in the real world.
The OpenShift Commons Gatherings take place all over the world to coincide with events that bring in Kubernetes and cloud-native developers, administrators and architects, allowing users of the OpenShift Platform to communicate their successes to each other and to share their tips and tricks for meeting business challenges along the way.
