A Cloud Center of Excellence consists of subject matter experts who provide leadership, best practices, research, support and / or training for all aspects of cloud engineering and operations on AWS. The implementation of a Cloud Center of Excellence (CCOE) can transform all aspects of nearly any business.
OC4 has assisted several customers in the establishment of their own CCOEs, serving in an advisory capacity until such a time as the customer becomes proficient in the various AWS disciplines and has appropriate reference architectures and best practices defined. For many of our customers, OC4 continues in a role as a member of the CCOE with a responsibility for advising the customer on optimization, evolving best practices, and emerging AWS technologies.
We have developed a methodology for the implementation of a CCOE that forms the CCOE in such a way that it is a complimentary component to existing IT services, rather than being an adversarial entity. Our best practices involve the creation of a multidisciplinary team that covers everything from policy to operations as they pertain to:
- System Management
- Quality Assurance and Testing
The CCOE’s primary initial tasks focus on the development of best practices involving patterns in Applications, Security, Testing, Monitoring, and customer-specific items. After assisting our customers in establishing these practices, OC4 works with the customer to develop a mechanism for continually improving these practices via a frequent feedback look from internal customers, as well as the modification of these practices on an as-needed / lessons learned basis.
OC4 has developed CCOE guiding principals as well as a methodology that creates a roadmap for long-term success in Cloud adoption. To learn more about OC4’s CCOE Services, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will respond prompttly.
