      "This solution includes support for MS PowerShell but is called Windows Management Framework 4.0. Since it is inclusive of the solution needed it is a good solution for this query. The website resource does give a lot of detailed information on the solution so it is a good resource however it is general so it is not the best result for this particularly worded Query."

      "My company uses this. It's a really cool and easy software to learn- and intuitive in my opinion. I think if you're looking for something like Terraform, then just do it. Get Terraform. It's probably one of the best."
