To K8S and Beyond – Maturing Your Platform Engineering Initiative - Nicki Watt, CEO/CTO

Kubernetes tends to be one of the first tools reached for when building platforms and supporting platform engineering initiatives. But success relies on a lot more than just making K8S itself easier for developers to consume. Working out how to balance people, process, policy and technology within a unique organisational context is key to uncovering a feasible and sustainable path forward.

This talk will explore how the recently released CNCF platform maturity model can be used as part of a toolbox to help guide organisations think through such journeys. We begin by identifying a few common scenarios organisations find themselves starting in, and map this onto the model. Then, leveraging our experience of having partnered with different organisations on their platform engineering journeys, we plot out a few paths and options which can help to practically move organisations towards achieving desired business outcomes.
