Platform engineering is in fact, an evolution of infrastructure delivery… built upon core philosophies that underpin DevOps…. it is simply the next progression in delivering modern application infrastructure.

Components of platform engineering:
1. Automation and Infrastructure as Code (IaC)
2. Containerization and orchestration
3. Continuous Integration and Continuous Deployment (CI/CD)
4. Monitoring and observability

Benefits of platform engineering:
1. More consistent infrastructure
2. More scalable and reliable software
3. Better security
4. Faster feature delivery
5. Better cost control
