Include MSFT Configuration Manager Advanced Dashboards with Configmgr
Microsoft Premier Field Engineering has created custom Configmgr dashboards. These are available for purchase though Premier Support Contract. I'd like to suggest these be included in the Configmgr distribution.
The CMAD solution (Configuration Manager Advanced Dashboards) delivers a data-driven reporting overview of the System Center Configuration Manager environment.
This solution consists of a rich set of dashboards designed to deliver real-time reporting of ongoing activity in your Configuration Manager environment.
Native Configuration Manager Reports are not replaced with this solution, the CMAD solution amplifies the data they show by providing additional data insights.
The dashboards in this solution were created based on field experience and on customers’ needs to provide an overall view of various Configuration Manager functionality. The embedded charts and graphics provide details across the entire infrastructure.
Key Features and Benefits
The CMAD solution consist of 130+ dashboards covering the following Configuration Manager topics:
•Software Update Management
The CMAD is supported on Configuration Manager 2012 and later releases (including Current Branch versions).
The CMAD is supported on Reporting Services 2008 R2 and later releases.
The solution does not requires extra workloads:
•It is deployed on the existing Configuration Manager Reporting Services infrastructure
•The solution provides a tool to easily deploy all of the dashboards
•The tool can also backup all the deployed reports
The reports are provided as part of the solution delivery, but no support for failures of any of the reports will be provided after the delivery.
