Transform your operating model with talent
Business leaders need to develop a different kind of operating model to realize the benefits of data on cloud. They must embrace new ways of working and a cloud culture that sparks innovation within a flexible, scalable, and agile mindset.
There are different operating model archetypes and depending on their org construct and where they are in their cloud maturity determines which operating model they should adopt. One model is a federated, hub-and-spoke operating model, wherein shared services and a center of excellence lie at the hub, and business units specific analytics use cases are addressed at the spokes.
Pods of cross-functional and multidisciplinary individuals work together to activate these spokes. To be successful, an enterprise product owner supported by process experts, functional experts, data engineers, data science and analytics specialists, user experience experts, and the IT team leads these pods.
These pods need support from a shared services data platform team that manages the data infrastructure and provides a standardized way to store, prepare, secure, access, and serve data-driven insights. Beyond these pods and shared services, data must democratize so every employee understands what value a data on cloud strategy delivers for them and their team. Only then will cloud truly be embraced across the enterprise.
