Now that we've got good control of our Orchestrator architecture and know how to build and design new Runbooks, we can start looking around and figuring out that we actually can bring more automation to our processes and procedures, reducing their execution time and effort, but we see that we are missing a few activities that allow us to successfully accomplish those objectives.
This is where the Integration Packs come in by providing an additional layer of connectivity between Orchestrator and the other technologies that are available in our infrastructure.
