Session: I find your lack of Azure Governance disturbing!
Organizations are adopting Microsoft Azure at a fast pace. Every day we have more workloads running on Azure. Workloads can be Cloud-native or non-native (lift-and-shift from on-prem). If your organization doesn’t operate a robust Governance model, it’s easy to create security issues and a lack of compliance. In this session, we will learn Azure Governance Best practices and how to build a Governance strategy from scratch. We will use services like Management Groups, Azure Policy, Tags, Azure Blueprints, CAF - Cloud Adoption Framework, and Cost Management to build a Governance strategy for your organization.
