In a hyperconnected world, systems integration is critical to business success. Good platform engineering is essential to create an integrated, reusable technology stack on which to create applications that offer scale, reliability and a compelling user experience.
In reality, good platform engineering calls for a multidisciplinary approach that includes: value stream mapping, business consulting and SME input to design and define products that meet user needs.
Many organisations are harnessing the power of Agile and DevOps techniques to create an integrated platform that can embrace artificial intelligence and machine learning as part of product development. Increasingly cloud technologies, including PaaS, play a key role.
