Hi, I've been tasked with coming up with some kind of monthly reports on the state of our data center, and I was wondering if anyone had advice on what kind of information is relevent to non-IT people, or advice on writing reports up that don't skimp too much on the technical data but get any concerns or red flags across effectively? I hate PowerPoint, so any alternatives are highly welcomed.

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Business people love to see graphs as they can easily get the point of a trend across and also easily show changes (via the peaks and valleys). Graphs focused on uptime, and response time would probably work well for you.
