Spotify Backstage: powerful but complex

Open source product offerings are not a silver bullet you can deploy and forget. You'll need a team to own and build your Backstage developer portal or service ownership catalog. This team will need a mix of skills revolving around operating, upgrading, patching, customizing, extending, and driving adoption of the platform. Don't waste SRE or Platform Engineering time on learning Typescript. Instead, simplify things and let OpsLevel do the work for you.
