Have to add my 2 cents.
First of all - we already have some examples in the ResourceKit which allow you to publish highly customized dashboards as web-pages. I'm afraid this is SharePoint realted for now, but maybe not (aditional research is required). I'm talking about PowerView feature, it's available in MS Excel and can be published to SharePoint, but I beleive to other places too. Here is how it looks in our PowerPivot example which is available in the ResourceKit.
Also, did you know that your already
have a powerful HTML-based resource for displaying dashboards and other data visualizations? No, I'm not talking about OM web client
. It's SRS - a SQL server platform for SCOM reporting. And you can already
do some cool stuff with it. Take a look - I've opened a Storage Performance Profile report and saved it with pre-configured parameters in the User's folder. After that you can open it using the following link:
- Code: Select all
is my SRS (SCOM Reporting) server, (Users+Folders...My+Reports)
is a standrd path to SRS and SCOM Reporting User's folder and "Storage Performance Profile Analysis (4 weeks)"
is the name of the saved customized Report - you need to customize it so that it doesn't ask for parameters and renders immediately. Here is the result, "Toolbar=false"
is the trick that enables report to be embedded almost everywhere.
And Microsoft recently released their PowerBI
platform, I'll look into possibilities our Management Pack is opening for monitoring Virtual Infrastructure on this platform. Looks like data analysis tools, especialy cloud-based are creating more and more buzz.
