SCCM Genius series Episode 1 replay and PowerPoint deck available now

What a great way to start our new SCCM Guru series offshoot, the Genius series.  It was an awesome event, even though I may have taken up most of the time by myself.  Hopefully, everyone found a lot of value in what I had to say, and it really builds the base for our future events.

    DuShawn Marshall

    James Tsangaropoulos
    Q: Can you load your licensing information – or can you take direct feeds from manufacturer (i.e. Microsoft MVLA) for comparing licensing compliance?

    Danny Leung
    A: No, you cannot load your purchasing information. This has to be done externally.

    James Tsangaropoulos
    Q: In the example how does the product know if it is compatible with Windows 7?

    Danny Leung
    A: Once Normalized, the data are enriched with the information from the catalog. Our catalog “Technopedia” contains the Win 7 compatibility values

    Dawn Molloy
    Q: Is it possible to research Win 7 compatibility by application in general instead of application on a single machine?

    Danny Leung
    A: Correct, you can search by Application. Also, you can use our pre-puild SSRS reports to search by application, or by compatibility status.

    John Nelson
    A: Dawn, I think I can help you out since I know your situation. The data you’re seeing is likely an internal report, not something pre-canned from BDNA. We can talk about it internally if you’d like.

    Q: Where can we find the 150 queries? We just installed BDNA 2.2.1 but don’t see what you are referring to?

    Danny Leung
