10 Real-Life Tips to make your internal Cloud Foundation Platform successful

Der Aufbau interner Plattformen (Cloud Foundation oder Entwicklerplattformen) hat sich in den letzten Jahren zu einem Trend entwickelt. Sie tragen dazu bei, die Anwendungsentwicklung zu beschleunigen, und entlasten die Entwickler vom Verwaltungsaufwand sowie von umständlichen Ticketflüssen. Der Aufbau einer erfolgreichen Plattform erfordert jedoch eine neue Denkweise. Neben dem Aufbau der eigentlichen Plattformfunktionen (die wir in diesem Vortrag grob umreißen werden) müssen Sie darüber nachdenken, wie Sie die Akzeptanz Ihrer Plattform fördern, um sie erfolgreich zu machen.

Wir verraten Ihnen 10 praktische Tipps und Tricks, wie Sie die “richtigen” Anwendungsfälle auswählen, Gamification nutzen oder eine Community aufbauen können.

Wann? 14. Juni 2023 – 11:45-12:30
