How to implement a developer platform in an organization with hundreds of existing services

Implementing a developer platform in an enterprise-level organization with a huge number of existing microservices brings significant challenges. In this session, you’ll learn how we are approaching the task of building and implementing our bespoke Developer Platform at SAP Concur, whilst onboarding existing production services with minimal disruption.
Talk abstract

Our organisation has hundreds of microservices running in production, and the burden of DevOps tasks that fall on development teams is reaching unsustainable levels. 

Implementing a platform engineering approach has become a fundamental necessity, but how do you onboard so many production services to a new custom-built developer platform without causing significant disruption? 

In this talk, you’ll learn how we at SAP Concur are in the process of undertaking this task.

Key topics to be covered will include:

  • Challenges encountered onboarding huge numbers of existing services to a new developer platform in an enterprise organization
  • Our approach to getting buy-in and support from stakeholders and development teams
  • The KPIs we are using to track success
