A Cloud Centre of Excellence brings together expertise, to accelerate cloud adoption within an organisation and create a journey for success. Whilst the CCoE provides governance and sets guardrails, it shouldn’t be viewed as a control function, but rather an enabling function, providing support mechanisms to enhance new ways of working and instilling behaviours to empower product teams, and speed up response times.
With the cloud revolution underway, organisations are having to take a cloud first approach to keep up with new demands for the people and processes needed to deliver on the promise of rapid development, automation and innovation across products and services.
Done right, the CCoE becomes a flexible and empowering resource organisations rely on to migrate to and build in the cloud with security, consistency and efficiency.
The CCoE can help your organisation get in front of competitors by giving more of your workforce the capability to innovate faster, delivering both greater agility and return on investment from the earliest stages of your cloud journey.
When the cloud is unleashed and demand from across the organisation surges, the CCoE can be a highly effective gatekeeper for managing demand and the cost that goes with it.
With an effective CCoE model, that includes FinOps intelligence, you’ll have an in-built mechanism to measure, monitor and direct more of your cloud spend and scalability towards the apps and outcomes that deliver greatest value to the business bottom line.
A major driver of cost savings from cloud supported app development is the automation aspect. Knowing what and where to automate requires insight into what will work for your organisation along with a shift for people and processes away from the manual interventions we’ve come to expect from our working practices.
By shifting the focus to engaging every member of the workforce with the value cloud adoption can bring, streamlined compliance and governance becomes just one part of this value creation. Instead of seeing the CCoE as an inhibitor, business units and employees know they’re there to create psychological safety. With governance and rules of engagement led by this expert team, employees are guided by a code of practice that’s embedded in both the technology itself and a workplace culture that is now embracing cloud optimised behaviours.
