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.”*
