Stable Basis for
High-Performance
Software Projects

Build it once, but build it right!
As a rule, many tools and processes are required in the lifecycle of a software product. Often, each team uses a different solution. The better way to do it is to have just one platform – for standardized and high-quality solutions in the project.

Dev Speed is King
Nothing works without IT anymore. Fast and agile software projects are indispensable if you want to thrive on the market. With a platform, you create the right environment for your engineers to work effectively and efficiently and focus entirely on their core task.

Platform Engineering in Brief

What is a Platform?

In platform engineering, a platform is a foundation, on the basis of which project teams can execute software projects quickly, effectively and economically.

What does a Platform Involve?

A platform comprises multiple well-integrated services that the team can provision and configure in self-service. The actual services are based on individual needs, but the projects should find everything they need. Typical services are CI/CD frameworks, automated deployment-staging and compliance validation.

Who Benefits from Platform Engineering?

Every role in a software project has its own needs, and benefits in its own way. See the following section: "Everything for Your Team!"

Our Platform Engineering Services for You

Project Enablement

The decisive benefit of a platform: the performance of software projects. Platforms offer project teams everything they need to make processes quicker and easier – without cognitive overload. That way, you can focus all your energies on what really matters: your project!

Platform Reliability

It has never been so easy to run software like Amazon, Google and Apple even with limited means. The platform architecture lays the foundation for reliable software. Highly available deployments, rollout processes and ingenious observability features are essential in order to be and remain highly available.

Platform Governance

They are unpopular and rarely work well: manual compliance processes. Modern platforms enforce compliance rules automatically. Security features are active out-of-the-box. Software that doesn't keep to the rules is rejected automatically.

Platform Building

There is a lot to think about when building up a platform; a lot of framework conditions to keep an eye on; many expectations to meet. We help you lay the decisive foundations and find your personal masterplan for building a software platform.

Platform Engineering: Technologies & Competencies

Kubernetes is Our Strategic Platform

As the basis for a platform, Kubernetes gives you access to an ever-growing ecosystem of high-quality solutions. And it gives you independence and scope when selecting an operating model – whether on-premise, public cloud, multi cloud or anything in-between.

GitLab is Our Chosen Agile DevOps Framework

Much more than a secure and convenient platform for managing your source code, GitLab provides an integrated, closely coordinated toolset of features to support your agile workflow. It's our go-to solution for source code management, CI/CD, and Dev Collaboration. We are happy to assist with setting up GitLab environments on-premise on multiple platforms.

ElasticSearch is the Centerpiece Of Our Observability Platforms

ElasticSearch (and its open-source fork, OpenSearch) is utilized in a multitude of our log aggregation and tracing systems. Its diverse capabilities in terms of operation, data flow control, high availability, and data security make it the right solution in many environments. We provide support for system planning, setup, configuration, and integration.
