Increase Developer Productivity with self-service

Take the friction away and let Developers focus on deploying business value easily.

Challenges faced by developers

What’s hindering their productivity

Ticketing systems

Developers raising tickets into platform teams for new environments or application cloud resources is inefficient and time consuming. Whether they're waiting for a ticket or a pull request, productivity reduces.

Reliability, stability and cost

Removing Development teams from being able to take any action on their application infrastructure leads to unnecessary Cloud costs, over-provisioned instances and a lack of security upgrades.

Steep learning curves

Developers are spending more time on learning complex DevOps tools rather than writing key business logic. Remove the Developer friction to have increased business value.

The 6 steps to productivity in Wayfinder

Step 1

Join your team's workspace

Have Cloud accounts connected to your team's workspaces with all the default access policies and Role-based access controls in place. All environments, applications, micro-service components, troubleshooting and CI/CD integrations can be managed by developers.

Step 2

Select the type of isolation your workloads need

Developers can select the level of workload isolation your platform team has setup. This can be as simple as non-production or production to make sure that production environments are always isolated at a network and workload level.

Step 3

Create workload specific infrastructure for your application

Choose from a set of various infrastructure workload specifications that best match to your needs - be it a single availability zone in non-production to keep costs low or GPU machines.

Step 4

Create multiple environments, either static or ephemeral

Create environments that you and your team require whether they are ephemeral environments to keep costs low or static long-lived environments for UAT, testing and production. Be in control of the Development workflow for your application!

Step 5

Create cloud dependencies

Select from a range of commoditised Cloud Modules that your platform team has provided such as RDS, Kinesis, CosmoDB, BigQuery or similar. Map the outputs of these modules into your application as environment variables for your application deployment to have an end-to-end service deployed in minutes.

Step 6

Troubleshoot with access and logs or integrated monitoring

Troubleshoot your application with the live log stream of your application component. Jump into the relevant environment with short-lived access to run diagnostics or replicate the production issue in another environment through self-service.

Integrate with existing IDPs

If you are already using an Internal Developer Portal such as Backstage, Port or Cortex - then you can integrate these existing ways of working into Wayfinder. Wayfinder has an API and a declarative YAML structure that will allow for you to integrate and use versioned API contracts to manage your Developers infrastructure needs.
