Mia-Platform mentioned as a Sample Vendor in the Gartner® Hype Cycle™ for Agile and DevOps, 2023 for Internal Developer Portal

27 July 2023 – Mia-Platform has been mentioned in the Gartner report “Hype Cycle for Agile and DevOps, 2023” by Keith Mann, Joachim Herschmann, Akis Sklavounakis for Internal Developer Portal.

According to Gartner, “Agile and DevOps are core capabilities that help modern software engineering organizations deliver customer value quickly and reliably. These capabilities combine technical ideas, such as automation and delivery pipelines, with human-centric concepts like collaboration, community and empowerment. Also, Agile and DevOps enable organizations to continuously experiment, learn and improve, so innovations continue to emerge , as seen in this Hype Cycle”.

Among this innovation, Gartner analyst Manjunath Bhat analyzes the business impact, drivers and obstacles of Internal Developer Portals, and recommends to “use internal developer portals to scale cross-cutting software engineering capabilities across multiple development teams and streamline the software delivery life cycle”.

Also, the analyst includes among the drivers of Internal Developer Portals:

  • Platform engineering: Organizations are adopting platform engineering principles and creating platform teams to scale cross-cutting capabilities across multiple development teams. Platform teams curate internal developer platforms to abstract away the complexity of siloed systems and processes. Internal developer portals serve as an interface through which developers can consume the capabilities of internal developer platforms.”
  • Developer experience: With software at the core of all digital innovation today, a great developer experience that accelerates software development becomes a key competitive advantage. Therefore, software engineering leaders are increasingly focused on minimizing developer friction and frustration. The ability to curate and provide customizable, developer-friendly experiences within the developer portal and reign in complexity will drive their appeal for both product and platform teams.”

The research then mentions Mia-Platform as one of the Sample Vendors for Internal Developer Portal.

What is an Internal Developer Portal?

According to Gartner, “Internal developer portals serve as the interface that enables self-service discovery and access to resources in complex, cloud-native software development environments. They can include software catalogs, scorecards to benchmark software quality, scaffold templates, product documentation, plug-ins for extensibility and automation workflows. Developer portals help improve developer productivity, operational efficiency and enhance governance by providing shared visibility across multiple teams.

Internal developer portals help software developers navigate infrastructure complexity, understand service interdependencies and enable faster release cadence in at least three ways. First, they serve as a common viewpoint for multiple teams of developers. Second, they provide developers with self-service access to underlying platform components and environments. Third, they provide a centralized place to score applications and measure progress against reliability and security requirements.”*
