PodCTL #53 – The Internal Build vs Buy Discussion

This week we had a great listener question that went something like this:

“I work at a large company and we currently run a production Kubernetes (vendor-centric) environment. Some other groups in our company have some homegrown platforms that do similar functionality. How do we convince those other groups to work more closely with us, including potentially getting those group to switch over to our platform?”

We broke this topic down into four functional areas:

  • How do we rationalize having one vs multiple platforms (cost, support, feature differences)?
  • How do we communicate to internal groups about the capabilities of an internal platform?
  • How do we stop thinking like an IT group and start thinking like a product team?
  • How do we measure success of the platform?

The show will always be available on this blog (search: #PodCTL), as well as RSS FeedsiTunesGoogle PlayStitcherTuneIn and all your favorite podcast players.
