Enterprises Deploying Central Cloud Teams Or Centers Of Excellence

Central IT cloud teams or cloud “centers of excellence” are becoming more prevalent as companies adopt cloud-first strategies, according to the State of the Cloud report.

Sixty-six percent of responding enterprises said they now have a central cloud team, and 21 percent are planning to add one. Fifty-seven percent of respondents indicated they had central cloud teams in last year’s survey, while 24 percent said they were planning one.

The top responsibilities of those teams include optimizing cloud services costs, deciding and advising on which workloads to run in the clouds and setting cloud use policies. Companies’ business units, meanwhile, typically handle cloud budgets.

Smaller and medium-sized businesses have been slower to implement central cloud teams. Thirty-one percent of those polled have a central cloud team – the same percentage as last year -- and 25 percent are planning one.
