Azure Tenancy Split for Leo Regtech

Influential splits tenancy and eliminates downtime for SaaS company

Read how we helped Leo Regtech split up their Azure tenancy in two. We were able to grant their wish and separate the two accounts with zero interruption in service for their development team and maintain essential info and history.  

Executive brief

Dividing departments and data

Leo Regtech is a London-based software company specialising in compliance software to enable businesses to comply with the FCA Handbook, AMF regulations, and GDPR, or tailor their software to match specific compliance needs.

After realising they needed extra support splitting up their singular Azure tenancy, they discovered Influential Software and our track record for success with Azure and decided to enlist the best.

The Challenge

Create a new tenancy

The company was restructuring and needed their resources, docs, and essential info to be split into a separate tenant for the new arm/branch of the company.

The main goal for the client was to complete the project with zero interruption or degradation in service for their development team. They also needed to ensure that their sensitive management information and project commit history were secure.

The Solution

An efficient split

Leo Regtech wanted to focus on reducing day-to-day regulatory burdens on teams, allowing them to be more forward focused, leading to enhanced operational processes.

After analysing the structure of their existing Azure tenancy, we devised a plan to migrate their Azure DevOps and Azure Subscriptions to a new tenant and active directory.

The approach meant we could deliver a result within a timely manner and deliver on our promise of zero downtime or degradation of service.

The Results

Zero downtime, maximum results

After working through various phases of unit testing, integrated testing, geo-redundant storage, and failover groups – we were successful in our goal of zero downtime. Meaning the development team could keep working efficiently, effectively, and without fear of losing their work.

Leo Regtech also saved a significant amount of money on their licence fees by purchasing through our Microsoft CSP.

Over the next few months, we’ll be regularly checking-in with the team to make sure they’ve truly hit the ground running.
