Platform as a Product

I’m seeing more and more information and misinformation that adopts the concept of “platform as a product” in respect to current thinking in DevOps and organisational dynamics, and this is a placeholder post while I gather my thoughts on that…

 

Evan Botcher describes a platform as follows:

A digital platform is a foundation of self-service APIs, tools, services, knowledge and support which are arranged as a compelling internal product. Autonomous delivery teams can make use of the platform to deliver product features at a higher pace, with reduced co-ordination.
