Platforms, self service and the end user, why is this so important?
Platforms as a concept have been around for a long time, probably since the dawn of the PC, and folks have being building layers of abstractions to simplify complicated process, laborious grunt work or even just day-to-day mundane repetitive work. The key focus always was to simplify the end user's experience and provide a simple and easy way to do what ever it is they need to do without having a complicated process to follow or just a command line prompt.
