Accelerating Your Organization's Path to Successful Cloud Adoption
AWS Professional Services created the AWS Cloud Adoption Framework (AWS CAF) to help organizations design and navigate an accelerated path to successful cloud adoption. The guidance and best practices provided by the framework help you create a comprehensive approach to cloud computing throughout your organization and throughout the IT lifecycle. Using AWS CAF helps you realize measurable business benefits from cloud adoption faster and with less risk.
AWS CAF Envisioning Workshop helps you create a foundation for your cloud strategy that returns ongoing measurable value to your organization. The visualization process connects your business goals and outcomes with enabling technologies, identifies key metrics, and helps you prioritize your cloud initiatives. AWS CAF Envisioning is delivered as an on-site workshop by subject matter experts from AWS, including AWS Professional Services. Contact your AWS account team for more information.
Create an AWS CAF Action Plan
AWS CAF Action Plans help you prepare for the transition to cloud-based IT. The journey begins with your leadership team reviewing CAF's six perspectives. Each perspective is used to create workflows that discover gaps in your existing skills and processes, which are recorded as inputs. These inputs are the foundation for creating an AWS CAF action plan to guide your organization's change management as it moves to the cloud.

The AWS Cloud Adoption Framework (AWS CAF) organizes guidance into six focus areas, called perspectives. Each perspective covers different responsibilities that are owned or managed by functionally related stakeholders. In general, the Business, People and Governance Perspectives focus on entrepreneurial capabilities; while the platform, security and operations perspectives focus on technical capabilities.
