What is an Internal Developer Portal?
According to Gartner, “Internal developer portals enhance developer experience by reducing friction throughout the software delivery life cycle. Developer portals streamline the development, deployment and life cycle management of software artifacts. They integrate with software delivery platforms to enable continuous delivery and infrastructure automation tools for abstracting away the underlying infrastructure complexity.
Integration with documentation tools, source code and artifact repositories enables organizations to adopt and scale innersource practices. Finally, it enables continuous operations by providing access to a toolbox via plugins for automation, monitoring and incident management. Product and platform teams can use developer portals as a one-stop shop for tracking visibility and ownership of services and components”.*
