Overview

Overview

Automation greatly facilitates the management of Azure resources by enabling the automation of tasks such as the creation of resources, their deployment, monitoring, and administration as part of a workflow-based engine. Associated resources (e.g., a cloud service with associated storage account and Active Directory setup) can be created and managed using what are referred to as "runbooks." The individual resources then no longer have to be created individually and separately.
