A couple of weeks back, I blogged about a number of dashboards that have been released, or were due for release soon.  These dashboards focused on providing a more visual reporting experience for products such as System Center Operations Manager, App-V, and System Center Configuration Manager.  The OpsMgr dashboard (Service Level Dashboard, to be precise) has been around for a while now, and the App-V dashboard is still in beta, however the dashboard for System Center Configuration Manager has now been released.

The Dashboard, a free Solution Accelerator, lets customers keep track of application and operating system deployments, security updates, the health status of computers, and IT compliance with key regulations - with an easy to use, customizable dashboard.

What about the benefits?

  • Actionable information out of the box: the Dashboard lets customers easily stay on top of deployments, security updates, client health, and compliance status.  Six default datasets provide customers with valuable information “out of the box”. 
  • Near-real-time access to key information: the graphical Dashboard lets customers view configuration manager metrics in near-real time.
  • Easy to build and configure: 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 dataset in the Configuration Manager 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 high-level to more specific data.


So there you have it – another dashboard hits the streets.  You can download it here.
