Tech departments often face the same technical challenges
With growing software organizations and the increase in complex software systems, it's very inefficient and expensive for each software team to maintain tools and the underlying infrastructure individually. As those teams are often dealing with similar issues, central platform teams are able to reduce friction, reduce cognitive load and speed up the development process.
Platform teams can mitigate this and improve developer experience, productivity, and autonomy of all teams at once. Platform teams provide fundamental services focussing on technical, procedural, systemic and cultural aspects to software teams. Therefore, software development teams can achieve higher levels of autonomy, productivity and better developer experience. However, it's also important to know how to setup platform teams in the right way in oder to minimize risks and dependencies in the value-stream.
