There is still a lot of confusion about the relationship between Internal Developer Platforms (IDPs) and Developer Portals. Gartner recently came up with a clear definition, which we adapt here:

“Internal developer portals serve as the interface through which developers can discover and access internal developer platform capabilities.”
