Imagine being a newly-hired developer
You have been assigned to create a new application.
How do I know where everything is? That I'll build something the company considers best practice? That matches the organization's architectural choices? That's connected to the company's CI/CD, security, and observability tools? And will be deployed so operations can manage it?
You have a complex tech stack
Multiple layers: experience, process, systems. Technology generations: cloud-native, on-premise, microservices, monolith; API, file, and event stream integrations. Multiple processes: architecture reviews, patterns, style guides, testing, security, change management, observability.
That's a lot to think about. This information may be in someone's head, on a wiki, Confluence, or another document repository in your organization. Your GitHub, GitLab, or Bitbucket repository may contain some of it. OR your CI/CD tool or cloud provider. Some may be... who knows where?
Accelerate delivery with an Internal Developer Portal
An internal developer portal organizes that data. So you can quickly train new developers. So they can find important application building or modification documentation.
Your Cybersecurity, QA, and Operations teams use their own tools, and can give developers targeted visibility into their applications. Instead of replacing systems of record, the developer portal extracts information so developers can see all the relevant data in one place.
What an Internal Developer Portal looks like
The software catalog provides a consolidated view of the applications, APIs and resources such as databases that form the tech stack.
Documentation is drawn from across the organisation to bring it closer to where developers need it when they are creating.
Templates provide developers with practices and tooling built in when starting new applications.
Integrations with systems such as monitoring and security enable developers to see the activity and performance of their applications.
What the journey looks like
You've implemented systems before. You know that it requires data sourcing, transformation, and adjusting to new ways of working.
With our experience and methodology, we guide you through the learning curve, modeling your tech stack in the system, integrating with your internal services, and developing the processes to gain the benefits of observability, standardisation and best practice.
