Automate your collection of CQM data in Skype for Business - Get-CqmAutomated.ps1 Released

My new script for automating the collection of CQM data, using the "Microsoft Call Quality Methodology Scorecard for Skype for Business Server" was released a couple of days ago.

It was announced last night at the "The Microsoft MVP Award Program Blog" with a solid description of how it is supposed to work, and how to set up the scheduled task in your own deployment.

I am aware the script has only been run in a "single" server environment, and I am look for a deployment with multiple monitor databases and/or mirrored databases to enhance my script to allow for collection from multiple databases, or selective databases.

CQM is getting more and more attention in the field, as it should be. I consider CQM a very important piece of the day to day maintenance of any deployment. How else can we know our deployment is working as it should be.

Here are a couple of links regarding the script:
