The Rise of Cloud-Native Engineering Organizations

SRE and platform engineering are successors of traditional operations teams and bring the discipline of software engineering to certain aspects of operations.

Introduction

Over the past decade, engineering and technology organizations have converged on a common set of best practices for building and deploying cloud-native applications. These best practices include continuous delivery, containerization, and building observable systems.

At the same time, cloud-native organizations have radically changed how they’re organized, moving from large departments (development, QA, operations, release) to smaller, independent development teams. These application development teams are supported by two new functions: site reliability engineering and platform engineering. SRE and platform engineering are spiritual successors of traditional operations teams and bring the discipline of software engineering to different aspects of operations.
