Why You Should Treat Platform as a Product
Read the white paper
For your enterprise to succeed, you need to deliver innovative products more rapidly and provide the value customers expect. That requires a Kubernetes strategy, a cutting-edge platform, and the technical expertise to deliver it in production. And that’s where we come in.Contact Us
We pair alongside your team to show you how to build, manage, and scale VMware Tanzu.
Your platform isn’t an off-the-shelf piece of software; it should respond to the needs of your developers. By treating the platform as a product, the product is never “done,” allowing it to evolve to meet changing business needs.
Empower a small team to build and run VMware Tanzu. With a PM and at least two engineers, the Platform Team has the authority to change both the production process and the platform itself—and can scale future DevOps initiatives.
Focus on velocity first. Once stakeholders identify the initial set of applications that go onto the platform, you can gradually make progress towards apps with a larger set of requirements.

Your customers demand a seamless experience, and we can help you provide it. Shorten your product development lifecycle and deliver high-quality software that solves real problems—and learn to do it consistently, efficiently, and cost-effectively.
Turn your Kubernetes goals into a plan of action and a design that can be implemented in production. We’ll research and test your hypotheses around user needs, business goals, and technical feasibility.
We’ll help you identify the platforms you want to build and offer to users. We’ll install, configure, integrate, and extend VMware Tanzu or another Kubernetes platform in your environment.
Make changes to your VMware Tanzu or another Kubernetes platform, extending it to achieve your business objectives. Where appropriate, we’ll make open-source contributions.
We’ll teach you to run your platform, patching and updating it in alignment with your availability objectives. We can be responsible for 24/7 incident response while your team focuses on other needs. Or we can teach your team to perform incident response.
Optimize your path to production and improve app lifecycle management in all environments. We’ll help you build or adapt existing CI/CD pipelines, providing you with enhanced security, compliance and consistency through automation.
Prioritize platform feature delivery while achieving your security and compliance objectives. Together, we’ll internally market your VMware Tanzu or another Kubernetes platform to acquire users and workloads and build a super-user community. Our experts pair with your people to establish and enable your dedicated Platform Team.
A 360-degree assessment of your platform health, ensuring that the dedicated people in your Platform Team and the VMware Tanzu technology can provide mission-critical services to your customers. We’ll build a plan for continued refinement, identifing opportunities for improvement of people, process, application/platform design and technology to support you in getting the best results from your platform.
“The team used to take seven months and 72 steps to release new code. Now they’re fixing bugs same-day with zero downtime. The [Platform engagement] provided a place to practice shared responsibility, which made it real.”
