Microsoft Azure Automation - Your pal in the cloud
Microsoft Azure Automation (AA) provides the ability to automate frequent, time-consuming, and error-prone management tasks. This automation helps you focus on work that adds business value.

See how AA helps with tasks and functions like inventory, change tracking, Desired State Configuration (DSC), update management, Python 2 packages, and much more.
