Cloud Centre of excellence is a team of experts or executives in cross-functional roles who lead the organization employees through the cloud journey, from defining the cloud objectives to cloud adoption to migration and post-migration operations.
This team establishes the cloud standards and repeatable methods and processes that every employee in the organization needs to use for leveraging maximum from the cloud.
The team creates a CCOE framework for aligning every department of the organization and increasing the benefits the organization can gain from the cloud. The CCOE team is responsible for developing the proper cloud adoption framework, IT infrastructure governance, and employing the best practices in the organization.
CCOE helps in auditing and assessing the existing standards of governance and processes based on ITIL to address the cloud challenges faced by organization employees and provide continuous support to the stakeholders.
