With ADP's mixed footprint of private datacenter assets (private cloud) and public cloud footprint, there is a need for a unified control plane to manage the hybrid cloud environment keeping security guardrails, resiliency and observability in mind.

  • Document and socialize enhancements to the control plane and new services exposed via the control plane.
