Cloud Maturity Model Rev. 3.0

The Cloud Maturity Model 3.0 addresses the maturity of an IT organization’s business and technology capabilities in specific domains and across cloud service models, such as Software as a Service (SaaS); Platform as a Service (PaaS); Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS); Database as a Service (DBaaS); Integration Platform as a Service (IPaaS); Information-as a Service and others.

The objective of the CMM is to help enterprises:

  • Evaluate where its IT organization stands in its ability to adopt and integrate cloud services
  • Benchmark its IT organization against other industry adopters of cloud
  • Build a custom roadmap for their organization towards establishing more effective Hybrid IT – integrating cloud services to improve, not just change, their IT offering and aligned to their specific needs and objectives.

After assessing its organizational maturity level, IT and operational teams can use the CMM to identify specific elements that are necessary to achieve desired improvements. These elements include operational processes and best practices, which are independent of hardware and software decisions. In many cases, such elements are missing from IT organizational practices, so the CMM helps IT and operational professionals develop a practical roadmap to achieve the desired benefits.

Public- and private-sector organizations have used the ODCA’s CMM to guide wide-scale implementations including the selection of cloud solutions and services. Many forward-thinking vendors integrate ODCA best practices into product and service roadmaps to support open standards and interoperability.
