October 2023 (document history)

Digital transformation is the single largest enabler for executives to improve customer experience, innovation, and flexibility. It uses machine learning (ML), artificial intelligence (AI), big data, and the speed and scale of the cloud to meet changing business conditions and evolving customer needs.

Amazon Web Services (AWS) is the world's most comprehensive and broadly adopted cloud platform. It can help you transform your organization while reducing business risk, improving environmental, social, and governance (ESG) performance, growing revenue, and improving operational efficiency.

The AWS Cloud Adoption Framework (AWS CAF) uses AWS best practices to help you accelerate your business outcomes. Use the AWS CAF to identify and prioritize transformation opportunities, evaluate and improve your cloud readiness, and iteratively evolve your transformation roadmap. 

AWS CAF groups its guidance in six perspectives: Business, People, Governance, Platform, Security, and Operations. Each perspective is covered in a separate guide. This guide covers the Platform perspective, which focuses on accelerating the delivery of your cloud workloads with an enterprise-grade, scalable, hybrid cloud environment.
