Our Solution 

Platingnum provides Enterprize-scale Azure Landing Zone solutions to perform cloud migration efficiently. 

Step 1: Planning 

During the planning phase, we will do assessment and discovery while collaborating with your team. When analysing landing zone deployment choices, our discussions with clients and partners help us appreciate that businesses may be at different phases of their cloud journey.

Network topology and connectivity

Decisions on networking and connectivity are the crucial core part of any cloud design. In this area of design, we will focus on important design issues for network topology and hybrid connection architecture. 

Identity and Access Management

In the public cloud, identity and access management is a fundamental security boundary. We will highlight cloud identity strategy planning, with an emphasis on authentication and authorisation, hybrid identity strategy, and identity integration.

EA Enrollment & Azure Active Directory Tenants

In this area of the design, we will help to establish the business’s commercial relations with Microsoft as well as how an organisation controls billing estate.

Management Group and Subscription Organization

Considerations for subscription design and management group hierarchy are crucial and have an influence on governance, operations management, and adoption patterns as cloud adoption scales.

Management and Monitoring

A management baseline is necessary to offer visibility, operations compliance, and protect and recover capabilities for stable, continuous cloud operations. In this design area, we will focus on enhancing Azure digital estate administration through centralised management and monitoring.

Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery and Security, Governance, and Compliance

In this area design, we will focus on improving the availability of cloud applications by utilising Azure native high availability, application and data recoverability, and disaster recovery (DR) features. With automated auditing and enforcement of governance policies, we will implement controls and processes to protect your cloud environment.

Platform Automation and DevOps

In this design area, we will help enterprises by recommending the DevOps method with their deployment and release management requirements utilising a continuous integration/continuous delivery strategy, which makes their present operating model more compatible and efficient. 

Step 2: Implementation 

During the initial planning and projecting phase, we will collaborate with your team in a one-day workshop to carry out assessment and discovery. 

Deployment and Guidance

We will conduct weekly meetings to establish the progress of deployment and help the organizational team in the execution.

 

Finishing

Our team will assist with the deployment of the management hierarchy and help you to deploy your Azure Landing Zone(s) by developing an Azure DevOps pipeline that employs Infrastructure-as-a-Code (IaC) automation approaches to assure constant adherence to your governance, security, and policy requirements.
