How to create an Azure Lighthouse offer with xTEN
Azure Lighthouse allows service providers to use the comprehensive and robust tooling built into the Azure platform to administer their customers infrastructure from within their own tenant. Customers retain control over who can access their resources, what resources they can access and what actions they can take. Enterprise IT organisations can also use Lighthouse to simplfy cross-tenant management.
With Lighthouse xTEN takes on the responsibility for user management within customer subscriptions, reducing the administrative overhead for our customers IT teams while allowing them to retain control of that access.
