Perfect the art of modern platform development

We pair alongside your team to help you build, manage, and scale a Kubernetes-based platform with the right components for your apps.

Build a platform developers want to use

Use the best tooling for both infrastructure and developer needs, using VMware Tanzu and open source components to build an app platform for your unique business objectives.

  • Design an app platform that considers both apps and infrastructure.
  • Collaboratively install, configure, and integrate the components for a dev-centric, production-ready platform.
  • Enable a dedicated platform team to manage and develop your cloud native platform.
  • Automate platform deployments, patching, upgrades, and operations.

Migrate apps and onboard developers

Speed up platform adoption and success at scale within your organization. Build developer confidence in your platform through enablement and fast feedback loops.

  • Establish a Kubernetes-based path to production for apps.
  • Create a developer on ramp for low-friction, self-service migration.
  • Minimize source code changes.
  • Drive platform features based on common app patterns.
  • Establish processes for continued app migration.
  • Evolve capabilities to meet changing app and developer needs. Learn how to treat your platform like a product.

Evolve your practices to keep pace

Master the skills and tooling needed to run a modern app platform. Then establish practices for sustained cloud native success. Empower a small team to change the production process and the platform itself—and scale future DevSecOps initiatives.

  • Update and patch your platform to achieve vulnerability and legacy budgets, while maintaining availability goals.
  • Respond to incidents and learn through retrospectives.
  • Extend your platform with new features to meet business needs.
  • Enable consistent visibility into platform metrics.
  • Work together to define SLOs for the platform.
