Empowering SAFe® with Platform Engineering for Fast Flow

In the context of Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe®), enterprises face a multitude of challenges that can impede the rapid, reliable delivery of products. Platform Engineering emerges as a pivotal solution to address these hurdles, enabling organizations to enhance standardization, automate routine tasks, and ensure scalability and reliability—all while maintaining stringent security and compliance standards. This presentation will explore how Platform Engineering not only resolves these issues but also significantly improves developer experience and productivity, optimizes cost management, tackles integration complexities, and boosts monitoring and observability.

The core of our discussion will focus on the Continuous Delivery Pipeline, reimagined as the operational platform backbone for your Agile Release Trains (ARTs). The discussion will highlight the strategic importance of the Platform Team in SAFe®, delineating their pivotal role in building and maintaining the infrastructure that supports all stages of product development and delivery from idea to production.

To bring these concepts to life, the session will conclude with a live demonstration of a functioning platform, showcasing real-time operation and the tangible benefits it delivers. Attendees will leave with actionable insights on leveraging Platform Engineering to enhance their SAFe® implementation, driving not just operational efficiency but also fostering a culture of innovation and continuous improvement in their organizations.
