Automation Slog

An Automation Slog - or just Slog - is a term (coined by Dan Simmons) for a primitive program, that prints out instructions that make up a process.

A Slog provides value by capturing/describing a process, at a far lower cost than automating the process:


echo "Login to AD Server"
echo "Open (AD manager software)"
echo "Navigate to Acme > Platform > Engineers"
echo "Create a new user"
echo "  Make sure Password must be set on next login"
