Basis for your cloud migration: Azure landing zone

Azure landing zone concept

Microsoft developed the ‘Azure landing zone’ concept to help you build and operate cloud infrastructures or workloads simply, securely and in a scalable manner. Azure landing zones:

  • form the basic infrastructure for cloud workloads,
  • contain best practices (including for governance, compliance and security),
  • and can be used again and again as a starting point for additional developments.

We have developed a starter kit to help you benefit from the concept and its potential swiftly and smoothly: the Azure Landing Zone Foundation Approach.

Azure Landing Zone Foundation Approach

Whether you want to migrate just a few workloads or your whole data centre, our Azure Landing Zone Foundation Approach starter kit will ensure that your cloud project succeeds.

We share our best practices with you, give you basic principles of governance and compliance out of the box, support you on the way to achieving your target architecture, and implement it securely using automation and infrastructure as code (IaC).

We provide the guidelines your company needs to execute your cloud project effectively and efficiently, from planning to operation.

KI.M: Scalable assessment centers in the Microsoft Azure

The cologne institute for management consulting (KI.M), its digital subsidiary (KI.BIT) and novaCapta as a partner, set out to digitalize its assessment centers. In addition to the realization of an interactive platform (KI.PAT), we also supported KI.M in the migration of its solution to the cloud.
