How to create custom reports in VMTurbo
In a software-defined world who needs reports? Nobody, that’s who!
Look, I get it, some people (particularly the folks upstairs) need reports. If you think about it, the end goal of any report or piece of data should be to derive some sort of conclusion or decision out of it. The good news is there is software that exists that can remove the complexity from this process and that essentially fast forward to these conclusions or decisions for you. After all, that’s truly what we are after with basic data collection, isn’t it?
In any event, we understand that although the ultimate goal of data collection is to develop and complete an objective based on that data, to certain members of an organization the thought process behind how said objective was reached can often times be just as critical.
Think of mathematics for a second. Every calculus professor I ever had required me to carefully detail each aspect of my thought process behind an answer even if the answer itself was 100% correct. This is commonly referred to as “showing your work” and I always found it extremely tedious. “Who cares about the work, the answer is correct!” I would exclaim. As you might expect that didn’t always go over so well.
