Swedbank: Journey to the Stars: Principles of Our Microservice Platform and the Role of Platform Engineering

Customer session

In this presentation, we will explore the main principles that our microservice platform follows, drawing inspiration from a space-themed concept. We believe in team independency, daily deployments, developer experience, compliance by design, and scalability across our entire organization. Using a galaxy and solar system analogy, we will illustrate how each team travels to their own solar system and builds their civilization, connecting with other solar systems through APIs. Additionally, we will focus on the critical role of Platform Engineering in creating a successful microservice platform. We will dive into how Platform Engineering enables teams to build, deploy, and scale their services effectively, with a focus on automation, tooling, and operational ownership. Join us on this exciting journey as we explore the key principles that guide our platform's design and development, and the vital role of Platform Engineering in making it all possible. Together, we will embark on a quest to create a robust and efficient microservice architecture that empowers our teams to explore new frontiers in software development. So, fasten your seat belts and get ready to blast off to the stars with our microservice platform and Platform Engineering!
