HCL Connections V7 and Ansible , interesting webinar announced

As you probably know Ansible is an open-source software provisioning, configuration management, and application-deployment tool enabling infrastructure as code.


HCL has announced the availability of a set of Ansible playbooks to guarantee an easy, repeatable and secure setup of the new upcoming Connections version. 

During the last year I worked hard on a set of Ansible playbooks for same reasons  about Connections MT for Factor-y MSP services. 


Having a set of playbooks released directly from HCL will be a great step ahead and I can't wait to use it. 

During last LetsConnect event I've also had the confirm this scripts will be available on a public GitHub repository so the community should be able to contribute and improve the script in case of needs, excellent ! 


HCL has announced a technical webinar "HCL Connections with Ansible Scripts Technical Webinar"

scheduled for Wed, Dec 9, 2020 4:00 PM - 5:00 PM CET , where we will be finally able to know more about it.
