From Duplication to Optimization: Why The Ability to Integrate Platforms is Essential

In the digital enterprise, providing cloud services for digital products and operations becomes key. Be it the mobile app for your customers or the data warehouse for your business analysts. There is a lot of different use cases and requirements to satisfy and your central cloud team’s capacity is limited. It’s just too much to dive into everyone’s use case.

Building Specialized Platforms to Serve Each Use-Case

A common approach is that specialized teams build specialized platforms on top of hyperscalers like Azure, AWS or Google. One team creates e.g. an Internal Developer Platform (IDP) for their application development and another a Data Science Workbench for data analysts. A third one simply delivers virtual machines from the cloud for lift&shift of legacy workloads.

The Challenge: Everybody is Doing What They Want

The dilemma is: Either you restrict cloud access to the services you explicitly allow and stay on the back of the platform teams. Or you risk everybody is doing things they should not do. Is everyone really following up on their security responsibilities? It’s hard to track and hard to know.

You would like to set certain common basic standards for security and monitor the critical actions. Everything else would be the responsibility of the platform teams. They keep their autonomy about their platform.

Thus your digital business can scale for every use case and you can focus on implementing the guardrails of general security standards.
