Course Overview
Hi, everyone. My name is Adam Frisbee, and welcome to my course, Enterprise Cloud Strategy: Creating. I'm a cloud and DevOps leader, researcher, and educator. Without an organization‑wide coordinated effort, a cloud strategy will not be successful. In this class, we are going to show you how to create an enterprise cloud strategy that will inspire cultural change, build consensus among stakeholders, and answer the important question, what role does the cloud play in our organization? This course is the second course in our three‑part series on Enterprise Cloud Strategy. Some of the major topics that we will cover include understanding the enterprise cloud strategy as a piece of the organizational strategy, assessing the realities of where you are now and how to get where you want to be, building governance models into your enterprise cloud strategy, and identifying principles and baselines upon which your cloud strategy will be formulated. By the end of this course, you will have built an enterprise cloud strategy template that you can customize for your particular organization. Before beginning the course, you should be familiar with the planning and pre‑work phase of an enterprise cloud strategy, as found in my previous course, Enterprise Cloud Strategy: Planning. From here, you should feel comfortable diving into our next course in the series, Enterprise Cloud Strategy: Launching, in which we will show you how to use the enterprise cloud strategy as a launching point for other initiatives like cloud adoption and cloud migration plans. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn about creating an enterprise cloud strategy with the Enterprise Cloud Strategy: Creating course here, at Pluralsight.
