The 6 pillars of platform engineering

No platform should be designed in a vacuum. A platform is effective only if developers want to use it. Building and maintaining a platform involves continuous conversations and buy-in from developers (the platform team’s customers) and business stakeholders.

This guide is intended as a starting point for those conversations by helping platform teams organize their product around six technical elements, or “pillars”, of the software delivery process along with the general requirements and workflow for each one.

In this guide, you will learn:

  • Common themes among companies that deliver great developer experiences
  • Specific building blocks of a platform strategy
  • Workflows and checklists for the six pillars of platform engineering
