The MAP Toolkit is designed to let you quickly and easily perform an inventory of your hardware environment, assess your current IT infrastructure, and determine the right Microsoft technologies for your IT needs. The data and analysis provided by this toolkit greatly simplifies the planning process to migrate software, assess device driver availability, and obtain hardware upgrade recommendations. The MAP Toolkit also gathers performance metrics from computers you are considering for virtualization, and includes a feature to model a library of potential host and storage hardware configurations.
The MAP Toolkit:
The MAP Toolkit uses Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI), Active Directory®, SMS Provider and other technologies to collect data in your environment without using agents. After the data is gathered, you can parse and evaluate it for specific hardware and software needs and requirements. The tool runs securely in small or large IT environments without requiring you to install agent software on any computers or devices.
