AWS Organizations makes it easier for IT teams to manage multiple AWS accounts. You can use Organizations to create groups of AWS accounts, and then apply policies to these groups to help centrally manage security and automation settings.

Organizations helps improve security by helping to control which AWS services can be accessed by users in individual AWS accounts. If Organizations specifies tighter controls than the AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM) policies for the account, then users will be held to the more restrictive Organizations policy. Organizations enables you to automate new account creation by using APIs to create and add new accounts to a group. Organizations also includes the features of Consolidated Billing, automatically linking accounts in your organization so they are paid for using a single payment method. 

With Organizations, you can more easily manage your AWS accounts at scale by application, environment, team, or any other grouping that makes sense for your business.
