I've just moved over into an IT department and I'm looking for examples of weekly IT reports. I am looking for something that looks awesome and ideally can be generated reasonably easily.

More importantly, what I'm not after is a series of grey tables that our users wont read. As much as anything this is as an exercise in internal marketing. If they report looks boring and irrelevant to our users it won't get read and won't be worth creating.

Do you need to do this? If you're considering implementing this on your own, I'd reconsider it. An IT department that sends unsolicited and uninteresting things to their users is more likely to have legitimate announcements ignored as well. There's no need to spam your own users. If everything is running smoothly, no one should know you exist. –  MDMarra Dec 20 '12 at 15:28
Do a newsletter instead with tips and tricks along with a few graphs on uptime/etc. (if they are good numbers). That's internal marketing. –  TheCleaner Dec 20 '12 at 15:36
@MDMarra sometimes it's nice to know most of your users will ignore something ;) –  Joel Coel Dec 20 '12 at 15:39
