Microsoft Power BI Solution for System Center Configuration Manager
It is shocking how little the reporting functionality of SCCM is used in many enterprises. The amount of last minute effort a company will expend to obtain basic environmental information is also shocking. There is an extensive amount of data that is stored in the SCCM database. Hardware functionality, software configuration, patch compliance, end point protection, and bit locker state are just a few of the items that can be reported on from the SCCM database by using PowerBI. By using a platform such as PowerBI, not only do you eliminate the need to create scripts for collecting inventory but your data can be readily available when you need to report on it. Software and operating system roll out, for Windows 10, can also be monitored in a near-real-time fashion and ease some of the status reporting conflicts that you may experience. Microsoft provides a cloud based PowerBI template that links directly into SCCM and provides many benefits over traditional SSRS reporting. The Microsoft solution is extensible and is based on the PowerBI service in the cloud. However, this functionality can also be also be brought on-premise using PowerBI Desktop.
