But what exactly is Service Management Automation and how does it align with current automaton and private cloud strategies? What are the capabilities of SMA and why should you care? What is the role of PowerShell workflow in SMA? Finally how is SMA configured, how is it used, what are the technical details needed to begin effectively using SMA?_x000D_ _x000D_ During this session I will be answering these questions. I will be taking an in depth look at SMA exploring capability, configuration, and also demonstrating some cool automation examples with full technical breakdown. The session will start with a discussion around the role of SMA in the modern datacenter exploring use cases, integration opportunities, and also taking a look at potential future opportunities for SMA. I will then detail the pre-requisites and configuration steps required to use SMA. Finally several practical example automations will be detailed, demonstrated, and discussed in depth.
