Monitor Software Update Installation in Real Time using a Dashboard or SCCM Admin Website
When deploying Software Updates to your server farm, it would be great to have a centralized Dashboard or Web Interface that provides you real time statistics of the patch installation process. This would give you the ability to immediately see if a patch failed to install or a client failed to install a patch or, in the case of a few updates, that a reboot is required to the remaining patches can be installed. I know its kind of getting greedy but if this dashboard existed, and you could right click on a server and launch a remote version of Software Center and siimply initiate a retry from this Dashboard (rather then having to RDP into the server and do it manually), patching servers and workstations would be so much easier.

It would also be nice to see how long it takes to patch a particular server - start time, end time, elapsed time. Maybe it would show which servers are slower than others and need something cleaned up, or more RAM, or disk space, etc.
