White Paper: A Blueprint to Successful Cloud Adoption
A center of excellence (CoE) is a team of executives, who lead the introduction of new capabilities into an organization—typically through new skills, technology, working practices or services. It will champion the transformation process, providing guidance, support and training to employees throughout the transition and ensuring everyone is on-board and pulling in same direction. The team will also aim to achieve economies of scale by eliminating duplication of workload and resources. It will set goals and priorities, such as target efficiencies, governance objectives, increased agility, new revenue opportunities and project deadlines. It will be responsible for introducing new structures or frameworks, standardizing processes, managing disruption and overcoming barriers to adoption. And, lastly, a CoE will review and iterate throughout the change process, striving for continual improvement in line with business objectives.
