A Pragmatic Approach To Cloud Centre Of Excellence

Before an enterprise can adopt DevOps, it needs to have a comprehensive cloud strategy that is agreed by all teams involved and sponsored by stakeholders and the CEO. Cloud Centre of Excellence (CCoE) is the first fruit of this consensus, delivering on the promise of achieving an organization’s cloud ambitions. This talk will provide a definition of CCoE, the components needed to create such a team, and how to enable such a team to deliver on your DevOps goals. It will also summarise the steps needed to form a CCoE, with a special focus on how DevOps will be involved.
