Azure Governance CIE: 4 Hour Workshop

TechStar Consulting Inc

Up to a half-day session on learning Azure governance and security controls. This session is delivered using virtual desktops for a hands-on experience.

Customers who are moving to the cloud, or are already there, realize the importance of implementing proper governance to reduce costs, minimize complexity, increase both security and compliance, and automate daily usage to maintain control and accountability.

The longer companies wait to implement Governance in Azure, the greater the increase in complexity and the higher the cost created by Cloud sprawl. After the fact changing of resources and systems can be difficult in Azure.  By attending this workshop, customers will learn to establish a comprehensive naming convention, create unified tagging, develop Azure policies, implement blueprints, work with Role Based Access Controls, create automations, and learn how to monitor and control Azure Spend.
