  1. Reduces the cost of development and time-to-market by early detection of issues.
  2. Simplifies the developer experience. Developers simply select a project type and the platform creates a skeleton project automatically.

  3. Extensible and customizable. Allows you to add tools and workflows you are already familiar with.
  4. The platform automatically manages dependencies for you. For example, when moving an application from development to staging, you usually have to connect to different APIs and databases. But now, the developer can simply move the application through its lifecycle stages while the platform automatically connects it to correct resources.
  5. Can impose policies and standards between lifecycle stages so that an application won't progress from one stage to the other before meeting regulatory and quality standards.

  6. Helps build a digital business ecosystem. You can make your applications public in a storefront and encourage to reuse them and build new applications. Since developers understand what capabilities are already available before starting a new development, cost of rework is reduced.

  7. Provides numerous dashboards to manage and monitor.
