  5. Daniel de la Garza
    Q: the 150 queries would be an addition to the default ones in SCCM?

    DuShawn Marshall
    Q: Both would be nice!

    Danny Leung
    A: Yes, the 150 queries are in addition to the standard SCCM queries

  6. 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.

  7. 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

  8. 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.
