In system administration, Orchestration is the automated configuration, coordination, and management of computer systems and software. (Wikipedia definition, attributed to Thomas Erl. Service-Oriented Architecture: Concepts, Technology & Design. Prentice Hall, ISBN 0-13-185858-0: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Orchestration_(computing)) Turbonomic supports orchestration via Action Scripts and via integrations with third-party orchestration vendors (see the Target Guide for more information).

In Turbonomic, you can create action automation policies that link to orchestration workflows as they recommend specific actions. Action scripts execute code that you create, while integrations with orchestrators execute workflows in their respective platforms.
