Cloud Center of Excellence Metrics and Cloud Transformation

CCoE Metrics

A Cloud Center of Excellence (CCOE) is acting in a consultative role for central IT, business-unit IT, and cloud service consumers. A CCOE is a key to driving cloud-enabled IT transformation. The CCOE is an enterprise architecture function.  

The Cloud Center of Excellence (CCOE) is an enterprise architecture function. Its responsibilities include setting cloud policy, guiding provider selection, and assisting with solution architecture and workload placement to improve outcomes and manage risks. The CCOE doesn’t have day-to-day operational responsibilities, nor is it a project management organization. This function should not be outsourced. The CCOE should oversee the organization’s cloud computing practices and actively solicit contributions from across the business. 

The following metrics help CCOE evaluate the overall cloud transformation
