AWS recommends a cloud center of excellence (CCoE) to address the added complexity. And as the report shows, IT and business operations leaders recognize the power of this best practice – even if they haven’t yet applied it.
“A Cloud Center of Excellence (CCoE) is a cross-functional team of people responsible for developing and managing the cloud strategy, governance, and best practices that the rest of the organization can leverage to transform the business using the cloud. The CCoE leads the organization as a whole in cloud adoption, migration, and operations. It may also be called a Cloud Competency Center, Cloud Capability
Center, or Cloud Knowledge Center. “ — Cloud Management Report 2017
Three key themes emerged from the report:
- The full potential of the cloud has not yet been realized
- Organizations adopting a CCoE for cloud leadership and vision
- Organizations benefit from a CCoE
