In the fast-paced world of software development, teams often use various point solutions to address specific challenges or tasks. However, this can lead to a complex web of tools known as 'tool sprawl,' hindering productivity. Platform engineering faces new challenges as multiple tools used across teams create inconsistent internal processes., point solutions sometimes fail to integrate seamlessly, worsening tool sprawl and reducing organizational efficiency.
