Help me understand what means a Platform for you

Platform. A word loaded with a lot of different and divergent meanings.

I’m collecting some of the common meanings of how we use the platform word for a post, and I would love to have your input in these regards 🧡

In which context do you use the word Platform? Which are the expectations on that platform?

Examples:

  • Platform Team of Team Topologies.

  • Open Platform. A set of open APIs for other teams or clients to consume. Could we also name this platform Software as a Service (SaaS)?
