Cloud Centre of Excellence
This major Financial Services brand wanted to move their technology into the Cloud to help them better engage with new and emerging services, to align the business with the overall direction of the industry. As a business the goal was to increase their performance, resilience and efficiency.
Having gained Board agreement to the creation of a Cloud Centre of Excellence to fast-track and systematised Cloud adoption, the work started in earnest and in parallel. Kicking off work on multiple workstreams to get development work of AWS and Azure platforms, whilst creating an all-inclusive operating model that will ensure the engagement of the wider Society within the Centre of Excellence and the ways of working to facilitate a speedy and efficient adoption.
This phase of the work culminated 4 months later in a formal launch event, held in their Head Offices styled as an expo event. As the means of opening the dialogue between the Centre of Excellence and the wider Society, make aware the products available, how to engage with us as well as advertise career opportunities within the Centre of Excellence. A series of interactive stands hosted by Cloud Providers and trusted partners engaged a wide ranging set of colleagues, and held a series of sessions covering Cloud 101, the Mission, Structure, Architecture and People intent, with the CTO, and Head of Infrastructure Transformation on stage the event was a huge success with the CTO saying:
"Absolutely Epic! Really well done, this is even better than I had hoped for. It’s awesome."
