SCCM Reporting and You at OWSUG

The Ottawa Windows Server User Group (OWSUG) is hosting a session called SCCM Reporting and You! This session will be held on Wednesday May 9 at 6:00 p.m.

SCCM Reporting and You Session Description:

Do you get asked questions such as: Who has Visio installed? How many Dell computers do we have? What is our SU status? We all know that System Center Configuration Manager (SCCM/ConfigMgr) is a great product, but where would it be without reporting? You wouldn’t be able to answer those questions without it. The built-in reports, however, always seem to fall short and never give you exactly what you want. Why not create your own reports?! In this session presented by Garth Jones, OWSUG Past President and System Center Enterprise Client Management MVP, you’ll be shown from start to finish how to create a useful report. You will examine a SQL Server query, see how to test this query and then learn how to create a basic report. Finally Garth will show you how to take a “Plain Jane” report and turn it into a work of art.

Objectives:

-Learn what tools can be used to query and report on data within the SCCM/ConfigMgr database.

-Learn some reporting tips and tricks.

-Learn some tips and tricks for using SQL Server query tools.

Where:

Microsoft Canada Building
100 Queen Street
Ottawa, ON K1P 1J9
