CloudLIVE Boston 2019 – What Enterprise Cloud Teams Can Learn From Their Peers

One user outlined the formation of a cloud team in this way: Cloud usage among developers and business user groups was burgeoning. The monthly bill was skyrocketing. There was a need to manage cloud usage in a beneficial way and establish cost control. This led to the formation of the cloud team or as some call it, the Cloud Center of Excellence (CCoE).


The CloudLIVE event held recently in the metropolitan Boston area served as a venue for the give and take of practical cloud management advice. I attended the event and will focus here on what I heard from presenters and panelists who were users of public clouds—typically AWS, Azure and GCP. Of particular interest were the discussions around the cloud team or what is sometimes called the Cloud Center of Excellence within enterprise IT organizations.
