    Not sure what your requirements are for IAC but we started our eslz with bicep and using this https://github.com/Azure/ALZ-Bicep repo. We had some consultants help build and then train us to do the deployments. I was able to pick up bicep quickly. By the end of the engagement I was modifying our IAC as the need arises. I did try terraform but found it a bit cumbersome. I prefer how bicep is incremental vs terraform having a state file to manage. They both have their place and probably both are just as excellent in the right hands. But I personally got a lot farther on day one playing with bicep then I didi with terraform.

    Also, take a look at the Azure Landing Zones bicep implementation (and follow the links to generic landing zones documentation, if you haven't gone through that yet) - again, probably not something for here and now, but something you might want to read when thinking about if there are more applicatons coming in, or need to scale more.

    - Deploy hub with adaptation of https://github.com/Azure/ALZ-Bicep - Deploy landing zone (ie. subscriptions into management group structure) implementation with a service principal scoped on management group. This step has a generic implementation with subscription-specific parameters. - Deploy workloads to the landing zone with service principal created by the previous step.
