SCCM Reporting and You!

Session Description:

Have you ever had to answer the question, who has Visio installed? How many Dell computers do you have? We all know that SCCM is a great product but where would it be without reporting? You couldn’t answer those questions without it. We also all know that the built-in reports never give you exactly what you want. So Create your own! In this session, SCCM Reporting and You, Garth will walk us from start to finish in creating a useful report. Starting with a SQL query that can be found on his blog, he will show how to test the SQL query. Next he will create a basic report before taking the report from Plain Jane to a work of art.

What you will learn:

* Learn what tools can be used to query and report on data within ConfigMgr Database

* Learn the tips and tricks to reporting

* Learn the tips and tricks for SQL query tools
