While we have mentioned that assets are either compliant with an insight's rule or it isn't, that doesn’t prevent you from taking a proactive approach to assessing your client’s infrastructure environment.

Insights provide rules-based data analysis that highlights critical issues. ScalePad has enabled forecasting of assets that are non-compliant to an insights rule within 90-days. This ability enables you to plan and budget for those assets before they reach compliance with an insights rule.

Forecasting is only visible once a partner is inside the insight console. The asset list looks identical to the typical insight experience, but only shows assets that are non-compliant to the insight rule within a 90-day timeframe.

​​For example, the following image captures a time-based insight that indicates there are 25 assets that are compliant with the insight rule “Slow workstations" (workstations that are over 5 years old). The Age column indicates the age (over 5 years) of every asset. Note that the screen image has been cropped to show only 5 of the 25 assets.

By pressing the Soon toggle, the insight asset console displays assets that are non-compliant with the insight's rule (within 90-days of compliance). The following image captures the same time-based insight of “Slow workstations" (workstations that are over 5 years old). However, the asset list indicates there are currently 5 assets that are non-compliant with the insight rule “Slow workstations" (workstations that are over 5 years old) and fall within 90-days of being compliant with the insight rule. The Age column indicates the age (within 90-days of rule compliance) of each asset that fits.

No forecasted assets are displayed within an insight

If no forecasted assets are visible on the insight asset list, see No assets are detected to be non-compliant within 90-days.

Filtering forecasted assets

An Action required filter enables you to see a list of assets that will be compliant in the next 90 days.

  • Now - viewing assets that are compliant with an insight's rule.

  • Soon - viewing assets that are non-compliant with an insight's rule (within 90-days of compliance).

No assets are detected to be non-compliant within 90-days

You may run into a situation where no forecasted assets are visible on the insight asset list. Several reasons why no forecasted assets are visible are outlined below:

  • Forecasted assets insight consoles are only available for time-based insights

    • For example, assets over a certain age, assets with expiring warranties, assets with unsupported OS, etc.

  • Forecasted assets are outside of the 90-day range of being non-compliant with an insights rule.
