Achieve your targets and get the most out of the cloud.

Dig deeper

Platform engineering is an emerging approach that ultimately enables organisations to accelerate application delivery securely. Not only does it enable developers to better focus on the creative side of the work and be productive in delivering business solutions, but it also ensures that cloud and practises are efficient, secure, and compliant. We are a forerunner in Europe in platform engineering, and therefore we can provide a broad portfolio of services to make an impact, help you achieve your targets and get the most out of the cloud.  

Platform engineering puts focus on business value

Imagine platform engineering as a well-designed shopping mall. Each shop within the mall benefits from shared infrastructure like lighting, security, air conditioning, and plumbing, allowing individual shop owners to concentrate on their unique offerings and customer interactions. Just as a mall’s architecture and operational efficiency contribute to a pleasant shopping experience, the platform serves as the overarching structure that hides the complexity of infrastructure, security, and practises.

Platform engineering enables businesses to enhance creativity, customer focus, and overall efficiency: individual development teams can thrive within the shared, well-maintained environment without being burdened by the complexities of maintaining the entire cloud infrastructure, security and practises themselves.  

Burden of infrastructure and operations removed from development teams

With platform engineering, you can scale DevOps team ideas cost-effectively across the entire organisation. This involves creating a centralised team responsible for developing and managing common solutions, such as models, frameworks, and shared platform-level services, to be used by various development teams.

The focus on scalable common solutions aims to reduce overlapping and inefficient work, promoting automation to support all parties involved in application development and operations. 

The result is increased satisfaction, creativity, and productivity

Smaller teams can achieve more, fostering cohesion and efficiency, for example, by

  • building self-service capabilities for development teams
  • development team autonomy (within the approved guardrails)
  • automated governance
  • automated networking
  • automated cloud infrastructure deployments
  • automated operations
  • reducing operational burden in general.
