This book provides a quick walkthrough to vRealize Orchestrator(most of the book content will be still be useful to users of vSphere 5.5) showing what to do to set it up and to create your first automation workflows. Orchestrator documentation is kinda scarce so if you plan to set it up you should give this book a shot!

As reviewer of this book and a complete novice to Orchestrator, this book turned out to be the ideal introduction to this topic that I ever wanted to dive into but never had the time for. Without consuming much time, it quickly leads to productive and motivating results. It is much more useful than any other introduction to this topic (including tutorials by VMware).Especially, I like chapter 6 where you get a very good and practical introduction into JavaScript.

This was not comprehensive nor worth the value that I paid for it, it was poorly written and a very light read for the price tag, I do not recommend this for any real professionals

Very clear explanations of the vCenter Orchestrator. He led me learning and using it at my job.
