IT Reporting and Dashboards
Wizard-Based IT Reporting with ODBC-Compliant Reporting Tools
Accurate, system-wide IT reporting is important for proof of license compliance and regulatory compliance, as well as for performing such tasks as effective asset management and systems lifecycle management. The ability for management to monitor critical, up to the minute metrics also enable preemptive actions for systems-related events. Monitoring trends using regular IT reporting can also help in identifying appropriate preventative measures to ensure smooth ongoing operations. Manual reporting approaches, even for the most conscientious organization, gobble valuable resources, are prone to error and require vigilance on the part of the administrator.
The K1000 provides comprehensive, easy-to-use reporting capabilities across the spectrum of its functionality. This helps to address compliance issues and enable effective asset management, as well as to provide systems management insights on an ongoing basis to ensure the minimization of systems downtime while providing for maximum security.
Multi-object Reporting Wizard
The K1000 utilizes flexible, wizard-based reporting tools to easily generate routine and ad-hoc reports on any K1000 function. It comes complete with 90+ pre-configured reports, and allows users to create custom reports directed to specific needs. Multi-object reporting offers powerful insights into the state of the IT infrastructure. This feature allows IT administrators to report on multiple criteria, allowing them to view meaningful correlations between different aspects of the IT infrastructure, including patching schedules, software versions, associated hardware etc. Users can view reports that provide a three-dimensional view of the IT infrastructure, and can select the dimensions from a simple drop down menu.
The K1000 also provides dashboards and graphical reports that deliver quick insight into key management metrics. These dashboards give quick insight into the status of software distributions, threat levels and license compliance, as well as indicating how busy the K1000 is itself.
Third Party Reporting Tools
K1000 reporting supports 3rd party ODBC compliant reporting tools, and allows for output in HTML, CSV or text-based formats. K1000 reports can be configured to run on set schedules, and also emailed to desired recipients to ease administrative intervention.
