One of the most important steps on the way to excellence in the cloud world is the establishment of a professional cloud body – a Cloud Center of Excellence (CCoE).
It is a body that includes a diverse team of experts whose goal is to implement the policy, the leading practices, and the architecture needed to adopt cloud technology in the proper, professional, and most effective way for organizations interested in moving to the cloud.
This task requires high and precise execution capabilities, along with creativity and strategic professional thinking, to create and update cloud-based processes. At the same time, existing processes must be improved, while avoiding limiting factors in those traditional processes that exist in the organization.
The Center of Cloud Excellence (CCoE) is an "enterprise governance" system that is often the key to driving the cloud transformation in the organization.
The purpose of this body is to define the responsibility and many implications around the move to the cloud, including defining a cloud policy, guiding supplier selection, assisting with solutions architecture and workload placement, risk management and more, in order to streamline and improve the enterprise processes (business and organizational).
The main goals we at Ness see at the CCoE are to oversee cloud computing methods among customers that it adopts to the cloud, and continually to improve cloud skills at Ness, both professionally and on the working methods and methodologies.
Like many policy bodies, this professional body requires cooperation among the following specializations:
Effective cooperation between these and other teams is a must. The CCoE at Ness serves as a "bridge" connecting all the units, ensuring the success of the transformation into the cloud for the company's managed customers.
The CCoE process is based on a cyclical process, without a definition of completion, in order to produce a process of continuous improvement while constantly examining and learning.
