Azure has a number of services that make it easier for you to deploy, configure, and operate the infrastructure and applications developed on Azure. In this session, we will cover Azure Resource Manager, Azure Automation, Azure Functions, Azure Logic Apps, Azure blueprints, and Azure Devops and how these enable you to manage your Azure environment from a management group, down to a specific resource. The session will talk about the key benefits of each service and how these can work together to ensure best practices are delivered within the organization while simplifying operational compliance and tasks. Learn best practices around declarative automation with ARM templates and DSC configurations as well as imperative automation using PowerShell in Automation & Functions. If you need to set compliance or integrate into other management systems you have in Azure or on premises, learn how Logic Apps, hybrid workers and blueprints can enable these scenarios. As more and more services are migrated or built on Azure, it becomes critical to understand the tools available for IT to successfully deploy and operate these workloads. Come learn about the new capabilities and scenarios that are available with the latest Azure automation technologies and how you can bring your existing knowledge and processes forward.

What you will learn:
  • Learn about the automation services available in Azure and when to use them for specific IT tasks
  • Learn how to bring existing knowledge developed in PowerShell, Orchestrator, SMA, DSC to Azure while taking advantage of new automation services.
  • Understand the benefits and limitations of the automation services and how you can successfully onboard them into your organization
