Kyle Weeks

Sr. System Administrator / Cloud Architect

Azure Automation: What it is, and what it isn't. An overview of components, and how to make the most of them in your environment(s).

 

Travis Sobeck
University of MN
Automation Engineer 

We often have to work in mixed environments and interact with systems we don’t control nor had a choice in choosing.  And that often means there is no PowerShell module to interact with those systems. Thankfully many systems have a REST API, but more often than not there are no examples in PowerShell.  This session will focus on building PowerShell to automate against these systems.

 

Jeff Bolduan
University of Minnesota
Computer Management Administrator 

Configuration items and baselines in SCCM, discussing signing code, and using PowerShell to detect, report and remediate in your environment.
