I've actually just started to go looking for this myself. I've had to hand off patching to a third-party but now I am responsible for managing them.
What I would like to see is a dashboard or report that I could look at each morning to see how compliant we are today vs the past to see if we are making progress or not. Did you find an external solution?
or at least make the results window non-modal so you can keep it open and still go back and implement the recommendations
What would be awesome is two additional options in the restart window:
1. Restart automatically during next maintenance window
2. Restart in x hours
Right now i go out to powershell and do a shutdown /r /t *** to schedule reboots.
Can you give more examples? Definitely want to innovate in these areas.
Something I have run across a couple times now is definitions getting out of date. An alert when clients are at risk would be great.
I agree that having full Group Policy functionallity within SCCM would be a huge improvement. When companies like mine are trying to obtain compliances like PCI and ISO, being able to report and confirm that compliance items are actually implemented and and are being enforced on client OS's across the organization would defiantly help the auditing process.
I agree, MS has come to us a couple times to audit our licenses and both times we have to go to SpiceWorks because SCCM doesn't seem to be able to provide us with product keys.
Its a shame that we can use a Microsoft tool to provide Microsoft information on the Microsoft Licenses we have at any given time.
