Bridging On-Premises and Azure: handling the struggles of a hybrid azure environment

Setting up a hybrid environment presents its own set of challenges, with DNS serving as a cornerstone for infrastructure stability. Achieving seamless resolution between on-premises and Azure DNS zones is crucial. While historically, many applications were hosted on-premises, there’s been a recent trend of migrating them to Azure. Despite this shift, maintaining a standardized authentication method remains essential. Leveraging Entra ID authentication can provide a uniform login experience for both on-premises and Azure applications, enabling the implementation of Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) for on-premises applications as well. Entra-ID has it’s limitations with nested groups (enterprise-applications) what are the options and how can we get rid of this painfull issue?
