  • Hi Ana,

    Need Urgent Help!!!

    Actually my company is planning to implement Microsoft VDI in my organisation. I wanted to know how exactly can we use MAP to assess our environment and how fit it is to be migrated to VDI solution?

  • Dear Team,

    I have evaluated the 6.5 beta and it looks pretty good. But I had one query that how exactly we can use the Microsoft Assessment and Planning (MAP) Toolkit to migrate an environment to VDI. Like what are the reports we can focus on?

    Thanks & Regards,

  • Hi Mohammed,

    We don't have anything in the current release that directly supports the VDI scenario.  We are looking at one to assist with capacity planning in an upcoming release.  

    I know that this doesn't help you now, but there may be a few bits of our current capabilities that will help you now.  Ping me directly at robpolly@microsoft.com and we can chat further.
