In this course, you'll explore the critical roles and responsibilities of a Cloud Architect, the differences between the roles played by Solution Architects and Cloud Architects, and the cloud challenges that a Cloud Architect needs to manage. You'll learn about the planning solutions Cloud Architects use to automate and orchestrate multi-cloud applications, along with the Cloud Computing Reference Model and Cloud Governance Lifecycle, which are used for building cloud frameworks. Next, you'll look at tools and frameworks that can be used to assess cloud operations and identify the current capabilities of multi-cloud environments, as well as success factors that need to be considered as benchmarks for identifying business values of cloud architectures. Finally, you'll learn about using the Target Operating Model to deliver value through appropriate cloud strategies and using the Multi-cloud Maturity Model and transformation workflows for building solutions for cloud delivery mechanisms.
