This demo-heavy session led by Puppet Certified Consultant Tim Odom and Tim Carr will focus on common integration patterns for operationalizing Puppet in IaaS deployments. In this session we’ll focus on how to integrate Puppet into IaaS orchestration platforms built from tools like ServiceNow, AWS CloudFormation Templates, Cisco UCS-D, and VMware vRealize Automation. We’ll demonstrate both on-prem and public cloud use cases and address how these integrations differ. Deploying, however, is only a very small part of an object's lifecycle. In the second part of our session we’ll address how we provide feedback of application state change to ServiceNow’s change management system and how that can be leveraged to escalate incident resolution and also automate parts of your compliance workflows. Finally, we’ll show how feedback loops can be leveraged to intelligently scale resources with approval patterns.
