Platform Strategy & Operations

The modern Digital Platform is a product meant to serve both internal & external consumers. It needs to address the pressing concerns and standard use-cases across your product portfolio. Most often, a platform is characterized by a self service foundation of APIs, composable infrastructure, continuous delivery of cloud services and data management layers. These enable product teams to innovate rapidly rather than reinventing the wheel.

So, how or where does a platform journey begin? We help you find your way.

  • Survey the ground: Assess your present portfolio of applications & IT operating model. Calibrate risks.
  • Facilitate vision & alignment: Define what you may need (or not need), across Engineering, IT, DevOps, Security & Digital
  • Navigate your options: Choose to build (on open-source) or buy COTS platform stack. Understand cost, pros/cons and tradeoffs
  • Actionable plan: Build a triaged backlog to kickstart your platform product.
