Landing Zones are a set of guidelines and best practices that help you create a secure, scalable, and consistent cloud foundation for your deployments. Landing Zones help you align your cloud strategy with your business goals and governance requirements, and accelerate your cloud adoption journey.
With Landing Zones, you can:
- Define the scope and objectives of your cloud initiatives, such as migration, modernisation, or innovation
- Establish the roles and responsibilities of your cloud team, such as cloud architects, engineers, and operators
- Design the architecture and topology of your cloud environment, such as subscriptions, resource groups, regions, and networking
- Implement the policies and standards for your cloud governance, such as identity, access, security, compliance, and cost management
- Deploy the resources and services that support your cloud workloads, such as compute, storage, database, and analytics
Rapid Circle can help you implement Landing Zones in your organisation, using the following steps:
- Assess your current state and readiness for cloud adoption, and identify any gaps or risks
- Plan and design your target state and desired outcomes for cloud adoption, and select the appropriate landing zone option
- Deploy and configure your landing zone environment, using Azure native tools or third-party solutions
- Validate and test your landing zone environment, and ensure it meets your requirements and expectations
- Operate and monitor your landing zone environment, and continuously improve and update it as needed
At the heart of Azure are its core services – Compute, Storage, and Networking. Access computing resources, such as servers, storage, databases, and networking, on demand, without having to invest in and maintain your own infrastructure.
You can choose from a variety of cloud computing models, such as Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), Platform as a Service (PaaS), and Software as a Service (SaaS), depending on your requirements. You can also scale up or down your resources as needed, and only pay for what you use.
Rapid Circle can help you with your cloud computing needs, whether you want to migrate your existing applications to the cloud, or build new cloud-native applications using Azure services. We can help you select the best cloud computing model and service for your scenario, and optimise your cloud performance, reliability, and cost.
To help maximise the impact of your existing investments, we can also help you integrate your cloud applications with your on-premises or hybrid systems and ensure your cloud security and compliance.
Artificial intelligence (AI) is the ability of machines to perform tasks that normally require human intelligence, such as vision, speech, language, and decision making. Azure offers a range of AI services and tools – including OpenAI – that enable you to build and deploy intelligent applications and solutions that can enhance your business processes, customer experiences, and competitive advantages. You can use pre-built AI services, such as Cognitive Services and Azure Bot Service, to add AI capabilities to your applications without requiring much coding or expertise. You can also use Machine Learning and data sources like Databricks to create and train your own custom AI models, and use DevOps and Kubernetes to deploy and manage them at scale.
Rapid Circle can help you with your AI needs, whether you want to use existing AI services like Open AI, or create your own AI models. We can help you identify the best AI use cases for your business, and design and implement AI solutions that can improve your efficiency, productivity, and innovation. We can also help you monitor and evaluate your AI performance, and provide advice regarding AI ethics and governance.
DevOps is a set of practices that combines software development and IT operations to deliver software faster, more reliably, and more securely. Azure offers a range of DevOps services and tools that enable you to automate and streamline your software delivery process, from code to deployment. You can use features such as Boards, Repos, Pipelines, Test Plans, and Artifacts, to manage your entire DevOps lifecycle. You can also use DevOps with other services, such as App Service, Functions, Container Instances, and the Kubernetes Service, to deploy your applications to various environments and platforms.
All of which can help you deliver more reliable software through platform automation – increasing repeatability and reducing human error. Ultimately helping your business deliver more reliable, engaging, and insightful digital experiences – on the web or mobile – for your customers.
Rapid Circle can help you with your DevOps needs, whether you want to adopt or improve your DevOps practices, or migrate your existing Task Management and CI/CD tools to Azure. We can help you plan and implement your DevOps strategy, and use the best DevOps services and tools for your scenario.
Or we can work with you to deliver application modernisation outcomes through the establishment of DevOps or Fusion Teams.
Data and analytics is focused on collecting, processing, and analysing data to generate insights and value. Azure offers a range of data analytics services and tools that enable you to handle any type and amount of data, from structured to unstructured, from batch to real-time.
Whether you are focused on improving your ETL (Extract-Transform-Load) processes, better managing how you store and manage your data, or how you visualise insights, Rapid Circle can guide you in the right direction.
With Microsoft Fabric, you can use services such as Data Factory and Synapse, to ingest, store, and process your data.

We can also provide advice regarding your data quality, security, and governance.
Internet of Things (IoT) is the interconnection of devices, sensors, and machines that can collect and exchange data over the internet. Azure offers a range of IoT services and tools that enable you to build and deploy IoT applications and solutions that can transform your business operations, customer experiences, and competitive advantages. You can use IoT Hub, IoT Central, and Digital Twins to connect and manage your IoT devices, and use Stream Analytics, Synapse Analytics, and Time Series Insights to analyse and visualise your IoT data. You can also use IoT Edge and Azure Sphere to extend your cloud intelligence and security to your edge devices.

We can help you design and implement IoT architectures that can scale to your business needs, and integrate your IoT workflows with your cloud and AI solutions. In parallel securing and monitoring your IoT devices and data, and providing advice ensure your IoT compliance and governance.
Security is the protection of your data, applications, and infrastructure from unauthorised access, use, or damage. Azure offers a range of security services and tools that enable you to secure your cloud environment and comply with industry standards and regulations. You can use services such as Entra (Azure Active Directory), Key Vault, and Sentinel to manage your identity and access, encryption and secrets, and threat detection and response.
