Platform engineering has grown in popularity as a way to enable application teams to focus on their customers while consuming non-differentiating tech from an internal team. Successful platform teams operate as a product team. They collect requirements; identify offerings that provide innovative and easy to use solutions to their customers’ problems; and package their offerings in a discoverable and easy to use interface. A platform team is successful when they focus on the differentiating tasks (identifying internal challenges/innovative solutions) while leveraging community solutions for commodities like API design and delivery. Join Abby as she introduces Kratix: a new OSS solution built after years of working on in-house solutions with the goal of enabling great APIs in the open.
