Microsoft Assessment and Planning Toolkit 4.0 beta available
MAP Toolkit 4.0 is an integrated planning toolkit that makes it easier for you to quickly identify what servers, workstations and network devices are in your environment. There is no agent that has to be installed on target machines and it’s able to discover all computers in Active Directory and in workgroup environments.
MAP can get hardware and device inventory, hardware compatibility analysis and generate actions that are environment specific to help with migration to the latest Microsoft technologies.
