Whatever your role, you need to understand the core ideas, tools and technologies every organization relies on. Most of us already use various technology “platforms”, but they’re often poorly understood. In this Executive Briefing, we’ll quickly get clear on what “platforms” are, and how they can help. First, we’ll cover the basic characteristics you should expect of any platform. We’ll then dive into multiple types of platform — including software platforms, development and infrastructure platforms. Finally, we’ll talk about evaluating platforms, including recognizing risks.
