Course Overview (music) Hi everyone! I'm Dan Lachance and welcome to my course, Managing Microsoft Azure Subscriptions. As an IT professional, cloud governance ensures the proper and efficient usage of cloud resources while complying with laws and regulations such as those that might apply to where data is physically located. Organizations can also delegate administrative control for the creation and management of Azure resources. As well, Azure costs can be budgeted and tracked using a variety of tools while tagging can be used to facilitate cost charge back. Some of the major topics that we will cover include: configuring Azure resource tagging and policies, working with Azure cost budgeting and tracking, using built-in and custom Azure role assignments, and finally viewing and registering Azure resource providers. By the end of this course you'll know which tools you can use to help track and reduce Azure costs, how to control resource deployment and management through role-based access control and Azure policies, and how to register Azure resource providers to enhance Azure functionality. I hope you'll join me to learn about managing Microsoft Azure subscriptions here at Pluralsight.
