The AWS Cloud Adoption Framework (AWS CAF) organizes guidance into six areas of focus, which span your entire organization. We describe these areas of focus as Perspectives.

Perspectives each encompass distinct responsibilities owned or managed by functionally related stakeholders.

Three Perspectives address Business Stakeholders:

  • Business
  • People
  • Governance

Three Perspectives address Technology Stakeholders:

  • Platform
