Cloud is now the primary choice for organizations that deliver new value to their customers. Successful enterprises use the cloud operating model, a framework for adopting cloud services, to maximize agility, reliability, and security and deliver superior business results.
However, this is only the first step. The most mature organizations are creating a group of centralized platforms that further align people, processes and tools to help scale cloud adoption across the enterprise.
The platform team plays an important role in achieving the maximum benefits of the cloud model. An effective platform team includes a cloud operating system that provides standardized workflows, a consistent golden image, and a cloud adoption registry.
