Summary of activities - Building a Cloud Operating Model

Summary of activities

A number of key activities can facilitate, support, and even accelerate the achievement of cloud adoption and delivery of business outcomes. Enterprises almost always have a multitude of competing priorities, even within their cloud strategy. Failure to transform operating models can result in a great stall phenomenon where adoption momentum stops or slows to a crawl. One of the key factors observed in those customers who have avoided this effect has been the successful establishment of a cloud delivery and governance function often referred to as a Cloud Center of Excellence (CCoE) or Cloud Enablement Engine (CEE).

This document includes six steps that companies should follow to build out a successful CEE.

  1. Work backwards from the customer

  2. Re-envision the world as products

  3. Organize teams around products

  4. Bring the work to the team

  5. Reduce risk through iteration

  6. Own your entire lifecycle
