What is RearPortal?

Powered by a centralised software catalogue, RearPortal restores order to your infrastructure and enables your product teams to ship high-quality code quickly — without compromising autonomy.

It comes pre-loaded with the best community plugins and ensures a version and configuration available for your groups irrespective of their tools, languages, libraries, and frameworks.

It accelerates decision making for the enterprise CXO and boosts developer productivity, alike!

something for everyone

Choose Your Role

RearPortal will help CXOs visualise their squad’s end-to-end health: product portfolio, agile, testing, operations, costs, and security. Transparent enterprise-wide reporting is a definitive plus.

Developers have a single pane of glass for each service’s end-to-end lifecycle and can discover and launch blueprints for everyday use cases like APIs, batch jobs, front-end apps, and documentation.

Why RearPortal?

The problems it solves!

Lack of Transparency

01

Interdependent teams find it challenging to track the progress of each other. Stakeholders and Senior Managers are also unaware of how to keep a realistic track of the teams' performance.

Infrastructure Management

02

With a combination of on-prem, public and private clouds used for software deployments, managing & maintaining the infrastructure is complex and often requires integration using custom scripts.

Slower Onboarding

03

With increasing software diversity, onboarding a new member in the team is a prolonged process due to the lack of discoverability of essential components in the ecosystem.

Enforcement of Best Practices

04

Developing a programming language/framework from scratch following the organisation's standards and policies should be replaced with reusable templates that can be scaffolded with push-button deployments.

How Does RearPortal Help?

RearPortal provides a Single Pane of Glass - A centralised portal software catalogues onboarded for the entire organisation.

50

Increase In Developer Productivity

The developers can easily navigate between the catalogues of different tools with no context switches, saving them precious time to work on productive stuff.

56

Reduction In Onboarding Time

The onboarded engineer can find the entire software catalogue and its dependency at a single entry point. With access to the Portal, the engineer has immediate access to all source code, documentation, and third-party tools.

70

Reduction In Infrastructure Provisioning Time

The time taken for setting up boilerplate code is reduced effectively with template repositories. RearPortal offers templates in various programming languages and frameworks with instilled best practices.

82

Reduction In Repository Creation Time

Single Push-Button Deployments are possible with Scaffolder. RearPortal offers Production Grade GitOps templates. Infrastructure Provision is made fast and easy - with no bottlenecks on Cloud Engineers.

Features of RearPortal

Common Toolset

01

Different teams use different tools for the same purpose, making it difficult to have a standardised platform visible to everyone.

Standardisation

02

Build your software templates, using which engineers can spin off new project development with built-in best practices.

Accountability

03

It is cumbersome to track the performance of working software unless otherwise managed via NOC and SRE specs.

Uniformity

04

Each team can view all the services and other software components (Libraries, ML Models, etc.) and their resources, including deployments, pipelines, pull requests, etc.

Centralized

05

RearPortal provides visibility into all the services built or managed by a team and, by extension, the entire organisation all in one place.

Service Discoverability

06

It is challenging to analyse the software components sitting in the dark corners of an organisation that needs to be deprecated.

Single Pane of Glass

07

The modern technology landscape with various tools, environments, and multiple self-organising teams makes it difficult to keep track of the artefacts' quality, process, and functional viability.

Maintainable Technical Documentation

08

With an inbuilt documentation portal, a team can document their service in markdown and periodically store it next to the code synchronised with a pull-based mechanism.

Our Unique Offering

Production Level
Engineering Portal

RearPortal builds on top of an open-source platform, and the offering includes Production-Grade Infrastructure as Code.

RearPortal enables rapidly setting up the Managed Portal for your organisation in the cloud provider of your choice.

Training

As part of the incubation process, we conduct a two-week workshop for the organisation. The interactive sessions smoothen the journey of adoption.

Plugins

RearPortal is highly customisable. As a part of the incubation process, our team brainstorms with your stakeholders to understand the organisation's needs.

After capturing the requirements, we propose the development of custom plugins to cater to the organisation's needs.

Software Templates

RearPortal offerings include software templates to save engineers' time by scaffolding GitOps repositories.

We offer Everything as Code templates for various programming languages and frameworks.

Environment Strategy

RearPortal has in-built support for the management of software catalogues from different environments.

Out of the box, Backstage does not support multiple environments. RearPortal improves over this nagging issue.

Documentation

RearPortal comes with comprehensive user documentation that allows the adopters to get onboarded quickly.

Maintenance

RearPortal offerings come bundled with dedicated engineering support.

Given the affluent community of Backstage, it has numerous releases every week. Our Engineers handle the updates in the Backstage platform and ensure the stability of the Portal.

Easy Plugins To Scale

Plugin Marketplace

Rearportal and the open-source community can contribute to and consume these plugins.

Moreover, RearPortal is highly customisable. Our Engineers are skilled in building custom plugins to cater to the needs of our adopters.

Who Is Using This Layer?

In the short lifespan, this layer has caught fire in the industry where time is indeed money and saving Engineer’s
time from non-functional tasks has become vital.

As one of the earliest adopters of Backstage, the developer experience team at American has had a firsthand look at how the community has grown. Today, they use their custom Backstage portal (known internally as “Runway”) to create a one-stop shop for their developers.

American Airlines

The Developer Ecosystem Experience Team at Expedia Group is using Backstage to help engineers across 13 different travel brands manage 20,000+ applications, hundreds of developer tools, and thousands of APIs, libraries, and technical docs.

Expedia Group

Netflix looked at a lot of different options to fill their developer portal needs. They chose Backstage because it’s built for extensibility and is an open source solution supported by a strong community.
