Management reports generation

HPE Service Manager includes two options for generating management reports using key performance indicators: Service Manager Dashboard queries and charts, Reporting, and Service Manager Crystal Reports. These tools allow you to generate predefined and ad hoc reports to display any information. The following describes these tools.

Service Manager Reports

The Service Manager Reports module provides reports and dashboards to enable faster analysis and improved time to resolution. These reports organize data into various chart formats, and the dashboards display one or more reports to provide global information about critical activities or metrics. These reports display relationships among categories of data. For example, one report might display the number of incidents per customer, while another displays the number of incidents by priority. Viewing these reports together as a dashboard enables you to make better business decisions, such as assigning resources to close incidents. Report Managers can share a report or dashboard.

The Service Manager Reports module aims to provide a lightweight reporting feature for active operational data, and the reports are therefore designed to retrieve, represent and visualize up to 100,000 active records out of millions. To define analytical reports against the entire data set, you need to use a third-party business intelligence tool.

Service Manager Crystal Reports

For operational reporting or regularly scheduled reporting requirements, HPE provides an OEM version of Crystal Reports with Service Manager. HPE also delivers over 40 predefined reports. You can run reports on an ad hoc basis and system administrators can define an automatic report-generation schedule using the Service Manager Report Scheduler tool. Crystal Reports 2008 is required to view, generate, or modify these reports and is included with Service Manager.
