Making Operational Azure Management a breeze.

Have you just started using the cloud? Perhaps you've been using it for a while and have experienced the dreaded resource sprawls or a huge bill at the end of the month.

The aim of this session is to showcase the all of the components available that allow organisations to embrace power of the cloud once they have invested time in laying down the key foundations for it's use.

Laying this operational governance foundation will ensure that your development team can then work in an agile way whilst enforcing that they work in accordance with all the governance, compliance & security, whilst ensuring that cost management, resource management and other cloud management aspects are implicitly adhered to as well giving your operations teams fewer headaches
