The Information Worker Management Pack enables you to designate a client as business-critical. Business-critical clients are managed much like servers are managed; an alert is generated on each business-critical client at the time the issue is detected. On collective clients, which are clients that are not business critical, alerts are disabled. Collective information about issues across the collection of clients is collected for use by reports.
