We recently partnered with AWS to host a webinar on how to go from manual to automated cloud governance.

Organizations typically run into a need for governance as cloud use grows and they start asking questions like:

  • How do I determine the current state of all cloud users and control their access across my enterprise?
  • How do I ensure adherence to IT budgets in a pay-per-use model?
  • How do I ensure deployments and operations are compliant with relevant legal, regulatory, and contractual policies?

The old way of getting answers - expending labor hours, manually tracking cloud accounts and users via spreadsheets, and storing policies in binders - can't keep up with the pace of cloud adoption.

Cloud governance at scale requires automation

The governance@scale model that AWS highlighted in the webinar can help customers retire manual processes and replace labor with automation to:

  • Provision and map accounts to your organization structure
  • Enforce budget actions to prevent cost overruns
  • Deploy accounts consistent with policies such as NIST and HIPAA

The solution can help you achieve cloud governance@scale across account management, budget enforcement, and compliance automation.
