Platform engineering: How to deliver more value reliably, with less development costs
12:00 - 1:00pm ET / 11:00am - 12:00pm CT / 9:00 - 10:00am PT
Join us to learn what what 'good' really looks like in planning for and delivering platform engineering capabilities. What differentiates high-performing platform engineering teams in the 'elite' organizations? And how much value may be getting left on the table when those differentiators are missing from your platform roadmap.
What is observability really? How can observability driven development and observable platforms lead to increased effectiveness?
The importance of ways of working and team structure - communication, culture, learning and leadership development - over toolsets.
How to do 'starter kits' and 'paved paths' right, and at scale, to maximize engineering platform value.
How to integrate technical product management in platform thinking.
When to start with platform engineering in your engineering effectiveness journey and how to improve their competency and measure them effectively.
