The Cloud Adoption Framework from AWS provides a guide to help organizations design and travel an accelerated path to successful cloud adoption. Moving an organization forward through the cloud maturity stages of the Cloud Adoption Framework requires all teams within an organization to have a baseline understanding of the operational aspects of cloud computing. This learning path is specifically designed to provide non technical business teams in the business perspective of the Cloud Adoption Framework (CAF) with a baseline understanding of the operational and cultural aspects of adopting cloud services.
Teams and individuals in the Business Perspective of the Cloud Adoption Framework. IT Finance, IT Strategy, Business Risk Management - Non technical Business Managers, Project Managers, Progam Managers, Consultants, Finance and Account teams, Sales Teams, Operational and Support Teams
- Recognize and explain the business benefits and operating models of cloud computing services
- Recognize and explain the operational requirements of cloud operating models
- Recognize and explain the benefits and operational requirements of AGILE and DevOps cultures
No specific prerequisites. The content is designed to help non-technical teams increase awareness and knowledge from a business perspective
We start with an outline of What is cloud computing. We then examine the business benefits of cloud computing and some of the business considerations of moving to a cloud service model. We then learn to recognize and explain the core aspects of a DevOps culture.
