Hardware and Software Assessment with ConfigMgr – Part 4

Part 1(https://endpointmanagers.com/hardware-and-software-assessment-with-configmgr-part-1) talked about the Devices

Part 2(https://endpointmanagers.com/hardware-and-software-assessment-with-configmgr-part-2) talked about the Operating System

Part 3(https://endpointmanagers.com/hardware-and-software-assessment-with-configmgr-part-3) talked about the Office, now we’ll look at the Office Add-in Analysis and as always, all queries can be found at my github repository at https://github.com/dotraphael/ConfigMgr_SQL_HW_SW_Assessment.

In this post, I’ll be using the OfficeAddIn.sql query.

  • Connect to the ConfigMgr server
  • Change the Database to your ConfigMgr database and open the Office.sql file
  • Change the @CollectionID to the collection you want to filter and click Execute
  • In the result, select all and then right click and click Copy with headers
  • Open in excel and past the results
  • On the Home tab, click Format as table and select the format.
  • On the Format as Table, confirm the My Table has headers and click Ok
  • On the Insert tab, click Pivot Table
  • On the Pivot Table, select the Add this data to the Data Model and click Ok
  • On the New Sheet, select Insert tab and then Recommended Charts.
  • Select the chart template and click Ok

Now we’re almost ready. We have our source of details as well as a way to visualise the data and now it is time to play with the content.

With the return of the device query, we can analyse the following:

  • Add-In Type Analysis
  • Add-In Vendor Analysis
  • Add-In Software Analysis
  • Add-In Office Product Analysis
  • Add-In Architecture Analysis

So to do this you’ll need:

  • On the PivotChart Fields drag the ResourceID to the Values twice. For both of them, click on the arrow and select Value Field Settings and then select Distinct count under summarise value field by
  • For the 2nd, change to the Show values as tab and select % of grand total under Show value as
  • Drag the SCCM Managed and LastInventory to filters. Filter the SCCM Managed to Enabled and the LastInventory unselect the Never

Now it is time to look at each individual item

  • Add-In Type Analysis: Drag the Type field to Rows
  • Add-In Vendor Analysis: Drag the Company Name field to Rows
  • Add-In Software Analysis: Drag the Product Name field to Rows
  • Add-In Office Product Analysis: Drag the Office Application field to Rows
  • Add-In Architecture Analysis: Drag the Architecture field to Rows
