This blip is not on the current edition of the Radar. If it was on one of the last few editions, it is likely that it is still relevant. If the blip is older, it might no longer be relevant and our assessment might be different today. Unfortunately, we simply don't have the bandwidth to continuously review blips from previous editions of the Radar. Understand more

Assess ?

With the widespread adoption of platform engineering, we're seeing a new generation of tools that go beyond the traditional platform-as-a-service (PaaS) model and offer published contracts between developers and platform teams. The contract might involve provisioning cloud environments, databases, monitoring, authentication and more in a different environment. These tools enforce organizational standards while granting developers self-service access to variations through configuration. Examples of these platform orchestration systems include Kratix and Humanitec Platform Orchestrator. We'd recommend platform teams assess these tools as an alternative to pulling together your own unique collection of scripts, native tools and infrastructure as code. We've also noted a similarity to the concepts in the Open Application Model (OAM) and its reference orchestrator KubeVela, although OAM claims to be more application-centric than workload-centric.
