As part of a discussion I have had recently with a colleague we have discovered that there is no lifecycle tool similar to NCM for Cisco devices for servers. My colleague uses different tools and has worked with more the SCM side of Solarwinds whereas I'm more network based. It would be ideal for him if there were some tool that could parse Microsoft's website, to pull lifecycle data for example:
Windows Server 2016 Standard and put the EoL and EoS data on that Similar to NCM.
If it could have something like that, he could easily get his upper management to switch to that tool as they're currently tracking it the old-fashioned way through spreadsheets and then manually imputing that all.
