Enterprise Reporter provides a unified solution for data discovery and report generation. Using the Enterprise Reporter Configuration Manager, administrators can easily configure and deploy discoveries to collect and store data. Once the data has been collected, the Report Manager allows users to produce reports that help organizations to ensure that they comply with industry regulations and standards, adhere to internal security policies, monitor hardware and software requirements, and fulfill many other reporting requirements.
As part of the Enterprise Reporter for Office 365 solution, Enterprise Reporter 3.5.0 now provides a new discovery type and new report library to support SharePoint Online Discovery and Reporting. With the SharePoint Administrator role, you can collect and report on SharePoint Online sites, site members, site owners, site groups, site permissions, configuration settings, and policies. Basic information from the tenant and sites is always collected.
You can monitor Windows patch compliance by choosing the Hotfixes option when defining a computer discovery. You can collect the following information on Windows update history for each computer:
You can configure Enterprise Reporter for publishing reports to SQL Server Reporting Services (SSRS). Reports can then be published allowing users to generate reports using a web browser instead of the Report Manager.
The ability to publish reports to Quest Knowledge Portal and the integration with Quest Knowledge Portal has been removed from the product. After upgrade to Enterprise Reporter 3.5, all reports will have to be published to SSRS, as previously published reports to Quest Knowledge Portal will no longer be available and cannot be updated.
