Azure Governance and Operations

 

Presently, the University has at least two Enterprise Agreements with Microsoft for Azure, as well as multiple individual accounts (e.g. credit card PAYG, educational staff and student entitlement).    

This arrangement is at best inefficient – across a range of functions - including auditability, billing, administration, security and on-premise integration and presents a large surface area of risk in linked areas, such as financial, security and business continuity.
