The report choices in May’s poll are: Asset Intelligence Computer Details OR Count of PCs by Wakeup Types. The winning report in May’s poll will become June’s free report!
a) The Asset Intelligence Computer Details report is a brand new report! This report is designed to fill the gap created by ConfigMgr’s built-in AI reports.
We heard that you wanted to see both the normalized and true product name software titles in one report, so you’ve got it! If you’re asking why you would need this information the answer is simple. Have you ever tried to determine who has SQL Server 2016 Management Studio (SSMS) only to discover that the normalized name is Microsoft SQL Server 2016 (all components) which not only includes SSMS, but also SQL Server Configuration Manager, SQL Server Data Tools, etc.? It’s impossible to know from the built-in AI reports who has SSMS without writing your own query, so we saved you the trouble!
The Asset Intelligence Computer Details report will also display each title’s software category and software family. This information will help you better understand what each product does. For any software items with no date, the result 1980-02-14 will be displayed.
By the way, this report will be the final drill-through report in a set of three reports. It is so new that it isn’t even a part of Enhanced Web Reporting – yet! Let us know what you would like to see in the report-set by dropping us a line on Facebook, Twitter or emailing EWRwish At Enhansoft.
b) The Count of PCs by Wakeup Types report returns a count of PCs by wakeup type. This is important to know because it allows you to understand how the PCs within your environment are turned on. This can be significant, for example, if you have not had a recent power outage, but you find that a lot of your PCs are “AC Power Restored.” This could be an indication that these PCs are not being used.
In the full-feature set, this report will then drill through to List of PCs by Wakeup Type, which in turn will drill through to a further report, Computer System Details.
All of our reports have the Role-Based Administration (RBA) feature enabled. This means that if you are using System Center 2012 R2 Configuration Manager or higher, these reports will work with all RBA clients.
