This item was not updated in last three versions of the Radar. Should it have appeared in one of the more recent editions, there is a good chance it remains pertinent. However, if the item dates back further, its relevance may have diminished and our current evaluation could vary. Regrettably, our capacity to consistently revisit items from past Radar editions is limited.

We see a lot of clustering in teams, microservices, libraries, and so on. We think a centralized software catalog like Backstage can help use to get a clearer view of our stack and the dependencies of a platform. It also helps to get the information and documentation you need as a developer more quickly.

Backstage is an open-source developer portal platform created by Spotify. There is a very active community around it with already a lot of plugins for integrations with other tools, ci, monitoring and so on.

At AOE we assess backstage in a big project with a subset of features.
