Hello Readers!

I wanted to provide you with a quick update post today to let you know what our colleagues over on the System Center Orchestrator Engineering Blog have been up to…

As you may recall, I cross-posted something from Eamon O’Reilly about a month ago: Using the Service Management Automation feature of Orchestrator in System Center 2012 R2, which was a fantastic introduction and alignment post for SMA + Orchestrator (or Orchestrator + SMA, depending your viewpoint) ;)


Since then, Eamon and team have published the following posts we believe are extremely noteworthy:

So, whether you are just getting started with Service Management Automation (SMA), wading in the shallow end, or headlong in the deep end, the System Center Orchestrator Engineering & Building Clouds Blogs have you covered!


As always, for more information, tips/tricks, and example solutions for Automation within System Center, Windows Azure Pack, Windows Azure, etc., be sure to check out the other blog posts from Building Clouds in the Automation Track (and http://aka.ms/IntroToSMA), as well as the great work over at the System Center Orchestrator Engineering Blog!

Happy Holidays and enJOY!
