I'm back with another call for feedback, this time on the topic of automation. As you are probably aware, the engineering team you originally knew as System Center Orchestrator (SCO) is also responsible for Service Management Automation (SMA) in Windows Azure Pack (WAP) as well as Azure Automation in Microsoft Azure. Despite how it looks, we actually don't need feedback on branding consolidation (we know, we're working on it).
We do need input from you all about how you use or would like to use automation to: provision infrastructure; automatically troubleshoot and remediate problems; automate across disparate environments/clouds. We're also looking for input on things that accelerate adoption like graphical authoring, migration tools, plus gallery content (reusable automation) and the automation community/ecosystem.
