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.
