Azure 3D Assessment - Governance - Security - FinOps 3 days


Our Azure assessments provide a comprehensive review of your tenant, delivering findings and recommendations aligned with Microsoft best practices and our expertise.

We offer three distinct assessments:

  • Azure Governance: Utilizing the Azure Well-Architected Framework to ensure a robust and efficient cloud infrastructure
  • Azure Security: Implementing a Zero Trust Architecture to fortify your digital assets and enhance cybersecurity measures for comprehensive protection
  • FinOps: Crafting a Cost-Optimized Tenant to maximize efficiency and financial benefits, ensuring your cloud resources are both effective and economically streamlined

Our Azure assessments provide a comprehensive review of your tenant, delivering findings and recommendations aligned with Microsoft best practices and our expertise. The main value proposition lies in enhancing your Azure environment through tailored insights, collaborative workshops for in-depth discussions, and a clear design document outlining optimized solutions to elevate your overall cloud performance, security, and financial efficiency.

What does keep you awake?

  • Security Concerns: Inadequate governance can lead to security vulnerabilities and risks.
  • High, Unrecognized Azure Costs: Poor governance may result in unexpectedly high Azure expenses.
  • Potential Security Breaches: Inadequate controls increase the likelihood of security breaches.
  • Lack of Control and Visibility on Changes: Insufficient governance (Azure policies and RBAC) can lead to a lack of insight into system changes and processes (DevOps).
  • Unintentional Data Exposure: Data may be exposed externally without detection.

How it works: Customers have the flexibility to choose the full package or select specific assessments based on their needs.

For existing customers, these assessments provide an opportunity to enhance their posture within the tenant. Meanwhile, new customers can leverage our workshops and design sessions to establish a solid foundation across all three pillars.

For new customers it is valuable for the following reasons:

  • Identify Gaps and Risks: Assessments reveal gaps and potential risks in governance, security, and financial operations. Identifying these early allows for proactive remediation and risk mitigation.
  • Enhance Security Posture: Security assessments provide insights into vulnerabilities, misconfigurations, and potential threats. Addressing these issues early on enhances the overall security posture of the Azure environment.
  • Ensure Compliance: Assessments help ensure that Azure configurations align with industry regulations and organizational compliance requirements, reducing the risk of non-compliance.
  • Cost Control: FinOps assessments contribute to effective cost control by establishing budgets, identifying cost drivers, and implementing strategies to minimize unnecessary expenses.
  • Optimize for Scalability: Assessments provide insights into how well the Azure environment is prepared for scalability. Recommendations from assessments guide organizations in optimizing their infrastructure for future growth.
  • Maximize ROI: FinOps assessments contribute to maximizing return on investment (ROI) by identifying opportunities to optimize costs without compromising performance or security.

(Each of these assessments involve a detailed review of your tenant, offering findings and recommendations based on Microsoft best practices and our expertise. This is followed by an interactive workshop to discuss these insights, culminating in a concise design document that outlines all proposed optimizations.)

Target Audience The target market for deploying an Azure governance framework is typically any organization or enterprise that utilizes Microsoft Azure as its cloud computing platform:

  • Retail
  • Utilities
  • Production
  • Local regional governments
  • Logistics

With this offer we don’t address challenges that are industry specific. Some examples:

  • Control risk and enhance compliance
  • Faster time-to-market and increased revenue enabled by Devops
  • Improved customer experience and efficiency through scalable performance
  • Unlock new opportunities and drive innovation with new technology such as AI without having to make large upfront investments
  • Shift from CAPEX to OPEX
  • Better cost-effectiveness through ability to scale-out depending on demand
  • Less environmental impact by scalability of cloud computing (CSR, CO2 emissions reduction)
