Enterprises who build software platforms often have one goal in common: they want to commoditize the development of certain types of applications.

They intend to simplify development by abstracting away as much commonality as possible, thereby freeing developers to focus more energy on the differentiated portions of the app. Inevitably, this leads to a boost in developer productivity. While technologically it’s easy to understand what a platform intends to do, it isn’t a straightforward exercise to measure whether a given platform is good at this task.

In this guide, we’ll share insights and techniques that you can use to assess a platform’s potential to maximize the value of your ecosystem.
