In one my previous post we discussed only about SCCM management insights. We listed all the insight groups and rules contained within each group. Each rule has a task to perform. In addition we also saw an example of how SCCM management insights can simplify your tasks. Packaging apps and deploying isn’t a simple job. Big organizations include lot of apps packaged in SCCM. Probably some of them are deployed and some aren’t. So what’s the point of keeping those apps that would never get deployed ?. Furthermore how will you find list of applications without deployments ?. The answer is using SCCM Management Insights.
