I sat in on Microsoft’s Orchestrator, SMA, Azure Automation roadmap session by Eamon O’Reilly at TechEd Europe and he said Orchestrator is their tool for on premises traditional data centers, Azure Automation is the cloud product.
All their focus is on Azure Automation and moving this product forward. Once Azure Automation is where they want to get it they will look at how to move that on premise.
SMA wasn’t mentioned in any detail.
If you want to use the WAP front end to provision Azure VMs right now we have a System Center IP for Orchestrator which now allows us to tie in to SMA to trigger SMA Runbooks, get status of SMA Runbooks etc.
