This trends report provides straightforward instructions that organizations can use as a blueprint for building an agile data platform that boosts app development speed. Portworx believes that this trends report dives into the following analyst recommendations:

  • Your first attempts at developing an platform should be focused on an internal developer platform (IDP). IDPs are currently the most established and comprehended forms of platforms.
  • Any platform employed by your team should enhance productivity across the organization and should be better than an open-source project that can be pieced together.
  • Decreasing the mental load for platform and developer teams should be a key priority as you design and implement an IDP.

With a well-implemented internal developer platform (IDP), data can be centrally managed and accessed from any application or region with minimal effort.

Portworx is the cloud-native storage software that paves the way for any effective internal developer platform.
