Software Update Reporting - Deep Dive

We are going to go way, way down, deeper and deeper, in this session. If you want to sit in a room and talk about the wonderful world of SQL views then this is the session for you. If you've ever tried making a software update report or want to know what that query you just stole from the internet actually says then come join the fun.

What you will learn:
  • Where's the data for software updates?
  • What does any of this actually mean?
  • How can I use it wisely?
