AWS Cloud Transformation Maturity Model

whitePaper |

The Amazon Web Services (AWS) Cloud Transformation Maturity Model (CTMM) is a tool enterprise customers can use to assess the maturity of their cloud adoption through four key stages: project, foundation, migration, and optimization. Each stage brings an organization’s people, processes, and technologies closer to realizing its vision of IT-as-a-Service (ITaaS). To fully benefit from the AWS Cloud, the whole organization has to transform and adopt it not just the IT division. Because this transformation can be complicated, AWS has developed the Amazon Web Services Cloud Adoption Framework (AWS CAF) to assist organizations to mature their use of cloud services.1 The AWS CAF provides best practice guidance to support all parts of an organization through its unique cloud adoption journey. The four stages of AWS CTMM are tied to the AWS CAF’s best practice guidance and activities to help an organization overcome challenges in its maturity and readiness journey.

Catbird: Private Cloud Security

whitePaper |

Fundamental shifts in data center architecture, specifically virtual networking, have resulted in a highly dynamic and agile infrastructure that is exposing weaknesses in legacy perimeter-based network controls and leaving applications vulnerable to internal threats. Virtual networks now comprise the majority of all networking in data centers and new software-defined networks (SDN) will further challenge perimeter-based security methods. At the same time, highly automated cloud systems have given us the opportunity to rethink how we can use the power of the cloud to maximize efficiencies within IT and protect our most sensitive data while also supporting business initiatives.
