Aelita Introduces SnapReports Database Management Tool
- By Scott Bekker
Aelita Software introduced SnapReports, a reporting system for Microsoft Systems Management Server (SMS). SnapReports is a solution that allows administrators to search, analyze, and generate reports on data stored in the SMS database.
SnapReports uses native Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) to retrieve SMS data. Its method for formatting data into HTML reports allows administrators to easily produce custom reports with truthful processing of compound attributes and to quickly search all SMS database content.
SnapReports extends the SMS Administrator Console's reporting capabilities so new reports can be created using SMS Query Builder. SnapReports also attaches to SMS Status Message Queries and SMS Collections, allowing the administrator to work seamlessly within WMI.
