AWS Cloud Adoption Framework (AWS CAF) offers structure to help organizations develop an efficient and effective plan for their cloud adoption journey. Guidance and best-practices prescribed within the framework can help you build a comprehensive approach to cloud computing across your organization, throughout your IT lifecycle.
Many organizations apply the AWS CAF methodology with a facilitator-led workshop. This website is updated periodically with access to tools and resources for self-service.
AWS Cloud Adoption Framework breaks down the complicated process of planning into manageable areas of focus.
Perspectives represent top-level areas of focus spanning people, process, and technology. Capabilities identify specific aspects within each Perspective which require attention, while skills and processes, organized into work streams, provide prescriptive guidance to help build actionable plans.
AWS Cloud Adoption Framework offers a way for customers transitioning to a cloud based IT environment to learn and plan for the imapct that cloud has on the execution of specific capablities.
The diagram above shows an AWS CAF Action Plan template. The organization's journey begins with their leadership team reviewing the six CAF Perspectives. Through each Perspective, the team can create comprehensive work streams spanning multiple disciplines and teams. These work streams capture gaps in skills and processes, and dependencies, in the template. The results are an Action Plan to guide the organization's change management through their journey to the cloud.
