Now this is something i have been working with some of our internal teams for a while. The Solution Accelerators team has looked into a requirement to help reporting in App-V. This really will be a great step in the right direction for helping customer report there application virtualization estate better. There has already been a dashboard released for SCCM but this dashboard is for the App-V Estates out there.
The Application Virtualization (App-V) Dashboard helps customers monitor virtualized software applications with a graphical display that makes it easy to stay on top of application usage, health, and compliance. Using the Dashboard’s built-in charts, gauges, and tables, customers can track any APP-V dataset in near-real time.
The Dashboard is now in beta release. Want to have an advance look at the Dashboard, and a chance to provide feedback so it best meets your needs? Join the beta program!
· Actionable information out of the box. The Dashboard comes with a wide range of valuable built-in reports, such as Top 5 Applications Used, Top 5 Users, Applications Never Used, Application Usage for a Specific User, System Utilization, and many more.
· Near-real-time access to key information. The graphical Dashboard lets customers view any App-V dataset in near-real time.
· Easy to build and configure. The Dashboard’s wizard-based tools let customers easily create new dashboards in minutes.
· Easy to customize. The Dashboard can easily be customized to meet the needs of different departments and other groups. Any data set in the Microsoft Application Virtualization database can be presented on the Dashboard in chart, gauge, and table formats.
Flexible & interactive. Users can easily filter data and create ad hoc custom views. Filters allow users to quickly drill down from a high-level perspective to more specific data
The following screen shot shows an example of the types of metrics you can display with the App-V Dashboard.
This really is great that we can start to harness some of the data thats just sitting in the datastore. As always please provide your feedback via Microsoft Connect and expect a blog step by step of the install coming soon :o)
