Recommended CCOE Operating Principles

Recommended CCOE Operating Principles

CCOE is a new operating model for OA which is primarily a governance and planning organization with oversite and ownership of the cloud platforms. CCOE builds the structure and widgets that PLAN/BUILD/RUN use to create and operationalize solutions.​ 

Our Recommended CCOE Operating Principles are 

  • Cloud will be built around NIST security standards​ 
  • New cloud capabilities will be planned and operationalized according to the cloud governance model diagram​ 
  • BRM and EA collaboration will define the CCOE roadmap based on business and strategic needs​ 
  • Cloud patterns, guidance, standards, and security will be planned in collaboration with EA​ 
  • CCOE will champion through consultation cloud capability adoption, knowledge transfer, and resource alignment to the cloud operating model ​ 
  • All cloud solutions whether migrated or new will be configured with network segmentation 
  • Cloud solutions will be cost planned, cost managed, and have cost data transparency provided near real time​ 
  • Continuous Compliance – Cloud will have data at rest and data in transit encryption based on the latest security standards for OA​ 
  • Cloud will have strict RBAC and will be integrated with Active Directory 

Cloud Decision principles 

Define when cloud is a good idea​ 

  • Workload-by-workload (or application-by-application decision)​ 

Potential principles​ 

  • Is it available as a SaaS offering?​ 
  • Is it available as a PaaS offering? What other integrations are required for a full solution?​ 
  • Build from scratch using cloud native capabilities? Can it be containerized?​ 
  • IaaS as a last resort​ 
  • Vendor considerations​ 
  • Build to Learn – Leverage vendor free/freemium offers to build proof-of-concept/minimal viable product solutions to aid decision making​ 
  • Leverage commercial technology, capability, and innovation whenever possible​ 
  • Maximize competition to ensure that the organization is getting the best technology and value​ 
  • Leverage industry open standards and best practices to avoid lock-in and provide maximum flexibility for future cloud advances​ 
  • Independently assess the services delivered to ensure that the data remains secure.​ 
  • Cloud Smart: One cloud strategy to adopt cloud solutions that streamline transformation and embrace modern capabilities for multiple clouds and missions​ 
  • Data Smart: Data transparency and visibility to be enabled by enterprise infrastructure, application standards, and data tagging.
