There are two major use-cases that Backstage adopters always highlight Software Catalog and Software Templates. The first one is about solving ownership, discoverability and cognitive overload. The second is about maintaining standards and offering golden path to production. Coincidentally, these two also happen to be the two most popular core plugins in Backstage. However, is Backstage mainly just these two plugins? On GitHub it says, Backstage is an open platform for building a Developer Portal. But what does the Backstage platform really offer? This talk will explain over 16 compelling features of the Backstage core platform which any company can use to build their internal developer portal. The talk will argue, why should companies use Backstage for their self-service IDP, even if they don't see the need for a catalog or templates and why Backstage platform is still better than a "homegrown" portal with enough flexibility and control.
