In this session, learn how Azure Automation enables you to automate the creation, deployment, monitoring, and maintenance of resources in your Microsoft Azure environment using a highly scalable and reliable workflow execution engine. The service can be used to orchestrate the time-consuming and frequently repeated tasks you’d otherwise accomplish manually across Azure and third-party systems to decrease operational expense for your cloud operations. Azure Automation gives you the ability to import or build Windows PowerShell modules to enable integration across Azure and third-party systems; author flexible Windows PowerShell Runbooks to accelerate time to value; and deliver resources faster through automation of manual tasks.
