How SAP paved the road for 30k+ developers

At SAP we have 30k+ people working in our development organization, with 1k+ products on our price list using various technology stacks.Backed by in-house user research and industry trends we decided to lower our team's cognitive load by introducing an in-house CI/CD platform called 'Hyperspace'.
Talk abstract

Dirk will talk about the obstacles of creating 'Hyperspace':

  • How we applied a "platform as a product" approach to an organization that was highly fragmented
  • Concepts of Paved Roads (a.k.a. Golden Paths) and how this helped us provide teams with guidance to reduce cognitive and support load on central teams
  • Share learnings from the last 2.5 years since we started Hyperspace including what worked and what didn’t
