Answer-driven automation it's one of the most important future directions. In Feb 2023, Dynatrace Launched AutomationEngine to Drive Intelligent Cloud Automation. This new Dynatrace platform technology features an intuitive interface and no-code and low-code toolset and leverages Davis causal AI to empower teams to extend answer-driven automation across boundless BizDevSecOps workflows.
We know that all topics related to Automations are very important for Dynatrace users that's why we already started to build a list of the FAQs. Below you can find links to all resources that can help you start work with automation better, including not only Community posts but also helpful links to video recordings, articles, blog posts, and others.
More content is yet to come so the list will be constantly growing. And just FYI, at the moment automation-related topics can be found on the Community under the labels: automation, automationengine, workflows, latest dynatrace.
