What is Cloud Governance?

Cloud Governance refers to the process of creating a strategic framework of policies and rules for cloud infrastructure. It also involves: 

  • Making changes to set policies and principles as required for controlling costs, 
  • Improving efficiency, and 
  • Ensuring the security applications and data. 

In a report, titled ‘Adapt Your Governance Framework For Cloud’ published in 2017 by Forrester Research Inc. cloud governance is defined as “the ability to provide strategic direction, track performance, allocate resources, and make adjustments to ensure that organizational objectives are met, without breaching the parameters of risk tolerance or compliance obligations.”
