The Microsoft® Assessment and Planning (MAP) Toolkit is an agentless inventory, assessment, and reporting tool that can securely assess IT environments for various platform migrations, capacity planning and product usage tracking for both users and devices. The MAP tool uses different wizards and collection mechanisms to gather information and generate reports and proposals on specific topics.
The Inventory and Assessment Wizard gathers the information that is needed to generate most of the reports and proposals that the MAP Toolkit offers. The Software Usage Tracking gathers information about client access of software in your environment that you can use to track client access licenses (CALs). The Performance Metrics Wizard and Server Consolidation Wizard provide the necessary information to complete an assessment of your readiness to consolidate and virtualize existing servers.
