The Challenge

Government organizations in the United Kingdom are modernizing legacy infrastructures and applications to improve the efficiency of their operations and services. More specifically, central and local governments adopt public cloud to gain agility, flexibility and control. However, without a defined approach for managing cloud infrastructure or easy access to secure information, government organizations make decisions in silos and are consequently unable to control their cloud consumption.

The Cloud Center of Excellence

As the digitization of public services continues, organizations establish a cross-functional group, commonly referred to as a cloud center of excellence (CCoE), to support and govern the execution of the organization’s cloud strategy.Members of the CCoE are seen as advisors who provide best practices, architectural standards, and guidance to agencies and departments across three areas of excellence: cloud financial management, operations, and security and compliance. A CCoE is intended to be a long-term entity, often nurturing a cultural change in the way an organization adopts new technology and processes.
