This topic describes the scenarios where Cloud Governance Center is used.

Preparations for early-stage cloud governance of a group enterprise

You are the chief information officer (CIO) or cloud architect of a group or multinational enterprise. To achieve the digital transformation of your enterprise based on cloud technologies is your top priority. To be specific, you may need to migrate the on-premises workload to the cloud or create a service in the cloud.

Before you migrate business to the cloud, complete the preparations such as the planning and construction of the resource structure, identity and permission settings, and configurations for compliance auditing. These preparations ensure fast and standardized migration to the cloud. These preparations can also reduce the governance requirements that may be generated after you migrate business to the cloud. These requirements may include identity leak prevention, fast business delivery, security compliance, and resource waste reduction.

Cloud Governance Center helps you deploy a standard landing zone for migrating business to Alibaba Cloud based on the best practices for enterprise IT governance. This helps organizations and teams better collaborate in the cloud, reduces risks, improves efficiency, and maximizes the value of cloud computing.

Standardized cloud governance of a large-scale enterprise

You are the CIO or cloud architect of a large- or medium-sized enterprise. To achieve the business goals of your enterprise based on cloud technologies is your top priority. In this case, multiple teams or external suppliers deploy business and collaborate with each other on Alibaba Cloud. As the use of the cloud deepens, the business scale expands, and resource types increase, you may encounter the following issues: How do I ensure account security? How do I ensure network isolation and security? How do I achieve resource isolation and permission isolation for multiple projects? How do I allocate costs generated in the cloud to different business teams?

Cloud Governance Center helps you manage resources based on the best practices for enterprise IT governance and the deployment status of your enterprise on Alibaba Cloud. The resources are managed in modules such as resource structure, identities and permissions, and compliance auditing. Cloud Governance Center helps you gradually improve your multi-account environment to make sure it is standardized and compliant with regulations. As a centralized IT governance platform for enterprises, Cloud Governance Center helps you reduce security risks, effectively manage the cloud environment, and accelerate the cloud transformation of your enterprise.
