Let's look at some of the improvements of the default Configuration Manager reports.
At First Glance
Let's look what you see on the first view when accessing a default Configuration Manager report on the Reporting point, which is actual SQL Reporting Services report server. The screen shots was taken when using Internet Explorer.

The following is the initial view after clicking on the ConfigMgr Default Reports folder in RicherReports 2.0 report server portal. Notice each reports folder in the left navigation menu for various categories each representing the report folder shown above.
Now lets compare a commonly used ConfigMgr report used for determining the Software Update compliance for a deployment group across a selected collection.
SQL Reporting Services report server
Notice the formatting and how the two different tables are off centered and not aligned. This makes viewing the default reports unpleasant.

Notice the difference in the reports. Both are Complinace 1 - Overall compliance reports for the same Software Update deployment group and selected collection.
Let's look at a more complex report
Lets compare a Power Manager report, specifically the Power Management - Computer activity report. The screen shot below is the ConfigMgr default report version.
And the following screen shot is of the same report and data shown thru a customized version of the same Power Management - Computer activity report.
Let's take a look at a simple All collections report. First the default ConfigMgr All collection report.
Now take a look at the same All collections report viewed thur RicherReports 2.0 report server portal.
RicherReports 2.0 improves reporting, usability and accessibility of reports published to a SQL Reporting Services report server.
Custom Configuration Manager Reports
Now lets look at some custom ConfigMgr reports that are included with the RicherReports 2.0 Custom reporting solution. Starting from some of the default ConfigMgr reports, we elaborated a bit more on those reports to create the following custom ConfigMgr reports. These are some real examples of some of the reports that are included in RicherReports.
When you run the Device Collections and Members report, you're presented with a select option that allows you to select the collections you want to view and see more information for. Then once the report renders, you are presented with a wealth of information regarding the selected collection.
For example: you can see the number of members of a specific collection, number of systems that are clients, or virtual machines, if the device is managed by MDM or not. Active clients, number of sitecode's, if the computer is blocked or not. You can also see the operating system of devices, domain and even client version. You also have the option to client on a computer name and get more detailed information about that computer from the same report.
That's the beauty of RicherReports, it brings reporting data together as well as have a nice flow from one report to another. If you want RicherReports customized to fit your organization, please contact us today for a quote.
