In this presentation I outline some of the key feature and capability changes in the automation applications in the vSphere suite. I outline the changes found in vMA, vCLI, vRealize Orchestrator, and PowerCLI.
Virtual datacenters and cloud environments are growing larger and more complex. New features and components are added. New dependencies are created. The responsibilities of each individual are growing. The need to ensure consistency and eliminating human error is high. The cost of misconfigurations in labor and business dollars is often difficult to quantify but everyone knows that it is there.
You are one person with more work and responsibilities then most of us can manage in a 40 hour work week. You can turn this around with automation. You can increase your productivity and more importantly your accuracy.
