AND KEY ROLES
around a CCoE
To support a global FinOps approach that keeps its promises, the idea is to lean on a certain number of key roles in this CCoE that distribute responsibilities amongst each other as illustrated below:
In a CCoE organization type or even if the FinOps lead is an isolated individual, his/her role is to define and implement the FinOps strategy and governance and to coordinate the different activities with IT and finance.
- Setting cost optimization objectives within the IT teams and reporting activities
- Supporting the IT teams in cost control and optimization techniques
- Setting up reporting, reinvoicing models, and procurement policies
- Supporting the Finance teams in managing their provisional and actual budgets and in reporting per service/application
However, the IT teams are autonomous in their everyday work and discuss with the finance teams of their departments directly.
