Drive Cloud Transformation with Cloud Center of Excellence (CCoE)

September 22, 2021

In recent times, cloud transformations have been structured and delivered by the Cloud Center of Excellence (CCoE), which leverages the cloud strategy and governance function to ensure that the cross-functional organizational staff can adopt of the cloud guiding principles through the comprehensive framework. A key area where the CCoE needs more power to hold the Cloud baton is countering the ever-changing market dynamics, which emerging Cloud organizations cannot decipher.

Businesses are increasingly under pressure to be more agile, proactive, and personalized in the experiences they deliver. For many businesses, huge legacy infrastructures stand in the way of delivering scalable, flexible, and valuable business solutions. As a result, organizations now view cloud adoption as a strategic imperative to accelerate their digital transformation efforts. They are moving to cloud centers of excellence (CCoEs) to ensure the adoption of best cloud practices.

What is CCoE (Cloud Center of Excellence)

A CCoE is the best-practice approach to drive cloud-enabled transformation and ensure cloud adoption success; organizations must have the right skills and structure in place.

Like all centers of excellence, CCoE brings together a diverse, knowledgeable group of experts from across the organization to develop best practices for the rest of the organization to follow.

The optimal way to achieve this is by setting up a centralized cloud center of excellence (CCoE). A CCoE is a centralized governance function for the organization and is consultative for central IT, business-unit IT and cloud service consumers.

The CCoE responsibilities include setting cloud policy, guiding provider selection, and assisting with solution architecture and workload placement to improve outcomes and manage risks. The CCoE doesn’t have day-to-day operational responsibilities, nor is it a project management organization. This function should not be outsourced. The CCoE should oversee the organization’s cloud practices.

PureSoftware CCoE collaborates between the following:-

  • Cloud adoption
  • Cloud strategy

  • Cloud optimization

It provides a set of repeatable standards, governance frameworks and best practices for the rest of the business to follow during the cloud transformation.
