Mia-Platform mentioned in 2022 Gartner® Adopt Platform Engineering to Improve the Developer Experience Report

Milan, 28 November 2022 – Mia-Platform has been mentioned as an example of a cloud-native application platform in the Gartner report  “Adopt Platform Engineering to Improve the Developer Experience” by Gary Olliffe.

The report analyzes how “platform engineering enables application technical professionals to improve the developer experience and streamline value delivery by reducing friction, frustration and cognitive load”.

Mia-Platform is mentioned as an example of a cloud-native application platform. The report states that a cloud native application platform is “typically used when the starting point is to provide a new on-premises or self-managed execution environment as an onramp to cloud-native architecture”.

According to this report, technical professionals responsible for application architecture and platforms should:

  • Adopt platform engineering to improve the aspects of the developer experience that are affected by high-friction development tools, technologies and processes;
  • Deliver the thinnest viable platform to remove developer friction without overengineering the platform;
  • Empower development teams by using a “platform as a product” approach that focuses on delivering and marketing compelling platform features, rather than forcing developers to use the platform.;
  • Win the hearts and minds of developers (the platform “customers”) by addressing their next biggest frustration or constraint with each new iteration of the platform”.

What is Platform Engineering?

According to Gartner, “Platform engineering is the discipline of building and operating self-service internal developer platforms (IDPs) for software delivery and life cycle management.

Each platform is a layer, created and maintained by a dedicated product team, designed to support the needs of software developers by interfacing with tools and processes.

The goal of platform engineering is to optimize the developer experience and accelerate product teams’ delivery of customer value”.
