PSTeams is a PowerShell Module working on Windows / Linux and Mac. It allows sending notifications to Microsoft Teams via WebHook Notifications. It's pretty flexible and provides a bunch of options. Initially, it only supported one sort of Team Cards but since version 2.X.X it supports Adaptive Cards, Hero Cards, List Cards, and Thumbnail Cards.

I think you should be able to accomplish with DSC, and the SqlServerDSC module. It's a bit involved getting everything set up and configured, but we're currently using DSC with Azure automation to do configurations of MSSQL VM's in Azure after deploying resources with Terraform. But, DSC works on-prem, too.
