Improving DevEx with internal developer portals

Internal developer portals have emerged as a one-stop shop that allows developers in an organization to access all the microservices and tools available to them. But they’re not just service catalogs – they also allow businesses to create self-service actions that developers can perform.

For example, developers can use these portals to access reusable services that will allow them to build a microservice, set up a development environment in the cloud, or request permissions.

The broader adoption of internal developer portals correlates with another trend: the rise of platform engineering teams, whose role is to empower other developers. Both concepts have become central to improving the developer experience, a priority for many organizations.

Organizations are not moved solely by the goodness of their hearts. After all, cognitive overload isn’t exactly new to developers, although the expansion of SaaS and the rise of microservices have arguably made it worse. But companies have also realized that improving DevEx can have a huge impact on their entire business.
