AUSTIN, Texas – November 2, 2016 – Catapult, a leading IT consulting firm, today announced the work it has been doing with Microsoft that supports the recent release of a Power BI solution template for System Center Configuration Manager (SCCM). The Power BI dashboard integration with SCCM provides robust and detailed analytics on client and server health, software updates, malware protection, and software inventory.

Through Power BI, the SCCM template offers a scalable solution, and is accessible in only minutes, rather than hours. Key data is collected incrementally on a daily basis for analysis of critical trends occurring, allowing users to quickly respond as needs change. Data is rendered through insightful and compelling Power BI dashboards and reports, with the ability to generate data mashups against data already collected.

Catapult’s System Center and Power BI teams worked directly with Microsoft to evaluate and enhance the Power BI solution template,” said Cameron Fuller, Microsoft MVP and Launch Solutions Director at Catapult. “As a longtime Microsoft partner, we are pleased to offer technical knowledge that will ultimately better serve customers using System Center Configuration Manager.”

Users interested in the Power BI solution template may engage with Catapult to arrange a proof of concept in their environment or may install the solution template themselves. To find out more, interested users may visit the Power BI solution template page or may reach out directly to Catapult.
