    Getting Started with IT Automation and Self Service Provisioning
    Ryan Kelly, Staff Systems Engineer, Cloud Management BU, VMware Recorded: Aug 29 2017 80 mins
    We all know how important automation is for the delivery of IT services. And a self-service provisioning, the key feature of the cloud, comes hand in hand with automation. But many customers, even those who already have vRealize Automation in their environment, don’t know where to start or how to move forward in the most effective way. If you are one of them, this webcast is for you.

    Through practical demonstrations, whiteboards, and technical tutorial, we will show you how to quickly become the automation guru in your team!

    In this technical, hands-on webinar we will cover the following topics:
    -Overview of vRealize Automation setup and configuration
    -Identifying and catering to your end users
    -Blueprint design (Machine Lifecycle Whiteboard session)
    -Overview of vRealize Automation extensibility
    -Tying it all together

    Using REST API and Webhook Shims to Supercharge IT Operations
    John Dias, Senior Technical Marketing Manager Recorded: Aug 15 2017 66 mins
    Want to take vRealize Operations to the next level by integrating with ServiceNow, PagerDuty, Slack and more? You can do that! Join us to learn how easy (and fun!) it can be to explore using vRealize Operations extensibility with two powerful features.

    First, we will cover how you can use the REST Notification plugin in to send alert information to practically any system with a Web API including vRealize Automation and vRealize Orchestrator for ultimate automation power. All possible with Webhook Shims, an open source project available today.

    Next, we will take a look at the vRealize Operations REST API to discover how you can perform many different tasks without even opening the UI. This includes using PowerCLI for tasks such as looking at stats, alerts, object properties and more.

    If you want to know how vRealize Operations can feed and interact with other IT tools in your environment, this session is for you!
  • Managing Infrastructure as Code: DevOps Engineering with Cloud Automation
    Managing Infrastructure as Code: DevOps Engineering with Cloud Automation
    Tom O’Rurke, Senior Manager, Solutions Engineering, vRealize Code Stream Recorded: Aug 8 2017 62 mins
    In this session our DevOps engineering expert will provide a demonstration of the vRealize Code Stream Management Pack for IT DevOps (vRCS MP), a.k.a. Houdini. This product allows the Cloud Admin to design, test, and execute DevOps processes for Software-Defined Infrastructure content through continuous integration/delivery (CI/CD) process.

    By adding Content Endpoints into the vRCS MP such as vSphere, vRealize Automation/Operations/Orchestrator content (metadata) can subsequently be captured and versioned in the Xenon Repository, tested in a staging environment and then released to the target (test, staging, or production) environments in a single request.

    Join this webcast to:
    -See a brief installation of vRCS MP
    -Capture content from vRA/vRO & show how artifacts (based on JSON) are saved to Xenon Repository
    -Test content to staging
    -CI/CD: Release content to production
    -Recapture & rollback
