How can automation help you? Richard chats with Jennelle Crothers about her work automating tasks with Azure. So what does automation mean to you? Jennelle talks about automating the delivery of resources to internal developers - whether that be on-premise or in the cloud. This is part of a DevOps practice, being able to use templates so that development is using resources configured as close to production as possible. Automation also applies to testing, deployment, instrumentation, disaster recovery and more. Will IT ever run out of work? Not a chance - there's always more to do!
Jennelle Crothers has been at Microsoft since 2013, currently working as an Azure Customer Engineer in Microsoft's Customer Success Unit supporting customers as they implement Azure to modernized their data centers and applications. Prior to Microsoft, she was a four-time Microsoft MVP and a self-proclaimed conference junkie, when there was such a thing. When not thinking about technology, Jennelle volunteers with Guide Dogs for the Blind and sneaks away to read dystopian novels.
