Now extend AWS CloudFormation to model, provision, and manage third party resources

Today, AWS CloudFormation is introducing a set of capabilities that make it easy to model and automate the management of third party resources such as SaaS monitoring or incident management tools with the benefits of infrastructure-as-code. With this launch, you can use AWS CloudFormation as a single tool to automate provisioning of your infrastructure and application resources, whether AWS or third party, without the need for custom scripts or manual processes. You can now create your own private AWS CloudFormation resource providers, share them with the open source community, and leverage third party providers developed by others.
