We’re extremely proud to announce that OpsVerse has been recognized as a “Representative Vendor” by Gartner in the Market Guide for Internal Developer Portals! Gartner, a renowned research and advisory company, published this guide on September 21, 2023 to provide key insights into the evolving landscape of Internal Developer Portals (IDPs).
The market guide, authored by Gartner analysts Manjunath Bhat, Oleksandr Matvitskyy, and Mark O’Neill, highlights the increasing complexity and lack of visibility in modern software delivery environments. OpsVerse’s inclusion in the guide signifies its role as a key player in addressing these challenges and contributing to the improvement of developers’ experiences, service reliability, and operational efficiency.
Internal Developer Portal As Defined by Gartner
Gartner defines IDP as a tool designed to facilitate self-service discovery, automation, and access to various resources within modern software development environments. These portals are employed by software engineering teams and developers to simplify their processes, foster collaboration, and boost overall productivity. IDPs play a vital role in tackling the complexities and limited visibility prevalent in today’s software delivery environments.
Market Recommendations by Gartner
The Gartner Market Guide emphasizes the significance of IDPs and presents the following key findings and recommendations for software engineering leaders and platform teams:
- Most frequently piloted technology: IDPs were identified as the most frequently piloted technology in the 2022-2024 Gartner Technology Adoption Roadmaps for IT Leaders Survey. Among the respondents, 22% indicated they were piloting it while 36% had already deployed IDPs.
- Continuous evolution: The guide emphasizes that IDPs demand ongoing investment and should not be considered a one-and-done activity. They must continually evolve to cope with changing development needs, software architecture, infrastructure, and operational requirements.
- Central technology and knowledge hub: Many software engineering teams lack a central technology and knowledge hub that provides visibility across development, security, compliance, infrastructure, and operations domains.
How OpsVerse’s Capabilities Align With Gartner’s Market Recommendations
Platform integrations: OpsVerse’s product, OpsVerse ONE, utilizes open-source Backstage to help accelerate product development. With OpsVerse ONE, developers can integrate their own tools with readily-available DevOps tools from OpsVerse such as ObserveNow, an observability tool based on Prometheus, Grafana, OpenTelemetry and DeployNow, a fully- managed continuous deployment orchestration platform.
Customizable dashboard: With OpsVerse ONE, developers gain full visibility into the software delivery pipeline and its components, interdependencies between services, and underlying environments from a centralized and customizable dashboard.
Self-service capabilities: OpsVerse ONE enables developers to explore and utilize underlying platform elements, set up environments, and automate workflows.
