  • How it works
  • A Landing Zone comprises three key components: a core set of shared service accounts - security, logging, provisioning and transit, a secure baseline, and an account lifecycle panagement process.

    The Contino Enterprise Cloud Accelerator comprises a core offering of reusable open-source components (such as Terraform modules and processes) that combines to address the above requirement, which can be extended and customized to suit customer requirements.

 Contino will work with customers to define the requirements and characteristics of Landing Zone(s) by working backwards from the business outcomes a customer wishes to achieve.  Contino will then utilize a 15 step preparation and delivery process that helps customer's assemble and upskill the right teams, align stakeholders to identified outcomes, and create the landing zone. Contino will help customer's choose and deliver a lighthouse project to prove initial business value, and then support business' as they scale.
