AHEAD created the Azure Governance Framework to allow enterprises to develop and maintain a fully optimized, and secure environment.
Why Do You Need a Governance Framework? Because businesses are already operating within frameworks, your organization will need to figure out how to continue to leverage that framework within Azure. When paired with governance and security measures established and maintained via a proven governance model, the benefits of public cloud can be fully realized. The need to establish this model is amplified for organizations with sensitive data, such as healthcare and financial companies. The objectives of the governance model are: establish standards, define policies, implement guardrails, improve manageability and operations, allow for flexibility and autonomy, and ensure auditing of the environment. For more detailed information, please review our Azure Governance Blueprint, along with descriptions for each component.
