During this engagement our Sr. ConfigMgr Architect participated in a new implementation project for ConfigMgr 2012, Operations Manager 2012, Service Now and an implementation and integration of the AdminStudio Suite and Workflow Manager by Flexera Software. We developed and designed custom reports leveraging SQL Reporting Services. We also built and developed application packaging solution with AdminStudio and InstallShield to populates the Software Center application catalog with all required corporate applications.

In addition we had the responsibility of doing an environment discovery to provide recommendation and best practices for common use and administration of features of System Center Configuration Manager. Responsibilities included the design and setup of an application packaging solution, along with implementing the Software Catalog / App Store, and the conversion of corporate applications to .MSI applications.

We also implemented a warranty monitoring and reporting solution that enabled management to budget and forecast hardware purchases. The solution reports warranty information for all desktop computers and identifies computers that will fall out of warranty. This solution was built leveraging Enhansoft’s products and API integration to access hardware vendor web services to obtain and discover warranty information for company owned assets. The discovered information also provided information and error codes that enabled administration to determine why specific information was not available or discover-able.

We also customized a patch management solution that included a dashboard for monitoring security compliance across all software updates. All reports presented in a graphical representation to show compliance and enables views for administrators to determine what updates have been deployed and the enforcement status of each update. Administrators are able to see what computers have fallen out of compliance and for what specific updates.
