How to get even better insights into your Configuration Manager data using Microsoft Power BI

HOWSystem Center Configuration Manager and Microsoft Intune allow IT Pros to manage PCs and mobile devices, keep software up-to-date, set configuration and security policies, and monitor system status. The database and reports in System Center 2012 Configuration Manager hold a wealth of information about the state of these devices, including hardware inventory, compliance states, software update levels and information about malware detections.

In the article below, Microsoft’s own Brad Anderson shows you how to leverage this and get even better insights into your ConfigMgr 2012 data using Microsoft Power BI:

We also have a demo of this that uses real data from the Microsoft deployment of ConfigMgr 2012 R2, SCEP 2012 R2 and Microsoft Intune where we are managing 100,000’s of PCs and 10,000’s of mobile devices. This is the dashboard every CISO in the world will want to have and use. In a single place you can now get a view of mobile device compliance with corporate policies, PC compliance with security updates, as well as malware encounters across the entire enterprise.
