During this five-day course, you will focus on installing, configuring, and managing VMware
 vRealize® Automation™. You will learn about the configuration and use of the vRealize
 Automation platform, including self-service provisioning and the creation of catalog services
 that include predefined virtual machines, software components, and on-demand VMware
 NSX® networks. This course also covers interfacing vRealize Automation with other systems,
 using VMware vRealize® Orchestrator™ to leverage workflows, and creating approval cycles
 and managing machine lifecycles to conserve resources. In addition, you will better
 understand and know how to achieve the benefits of automation as a component of the
 software-defined data center.
