    I know that in AWS you can now have "Organizations" and that allows root organizational control of a series of fully segregated accounts. What, if available, would be the equivalent to that functionality in Azure?

    Hi Ryan,

    In Azure, you would want to look at Subscription Management and RBAC. There is also Management Groups that can manage your access outside of the subscriptions IAM. More information is available at https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/governance/management-groups/overview and https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/cloud-adoption-framework/decision-guides/subscriptions/

    Hope this helps!
