Excursion: Multi-Cloud Organization Done Right

To utilize the cloud to the fullest enterprises have to transform their internal organization to fit the new cloud-native approach. What we at meshcloud see most with our customers is a transformation from a silo-like organization to a centralized cloud foundation team or cloud center of excellence that takes care of cloud or multi-cloud governance.

They integrate platforms, define landing zones, organize provisioning, ensure continuous compliance and provide cross-cloud transparency. All this is centralized in a tool and highly automated. Manual processes are not scalable when DevOps grows. Self-service is implemented to decouple DevOps from cloud governance and the cloud foundation team. That accelerates time-to-cloud for DevOps and time to market for the business.

Step #5 — The Service Organization

Step #6 — Running IT Like a Business
