Introduction to Azure Automation (again)

Azure Automation is a process automation tool hosted in Azure.  It provides the ability to run scripts or Runbooks in Azure, other clouds, or On-premises by a schedule or other event trigger.  In addition, we can manage inventory and change tracking with Configuration Management, keep computers up to date with Update Management, and share resources such as modules, schedules, and credentials with share resources.
