Microsoft Assessment and Planning Toolkit 5.0 Beta 1 is available for SCCM and others…

Commentaires fermés mars 16th, 2010

Hi,

Microsoft Assessment and Planning Toolkit 5.0 Beta 1 is available on Connect.

What’s MAP 5.0:

The Microsoft Assessment and Planning (MAP) Toolkit 5.0 is an agentless tool designed to simplify and streamline the IT infrastructure planning process across multiple scenarios through network-wide automated discovery and assessments. This Solution Accelerator performs an inventory of heterogeneous server environments and provides you with usage information for servers in the Core CAL Suite, a data center infrastructure assessment survey, and a readiness assessment for the most widely used Microsoft technologies—now including Office 2010.

What’s new with version 5.0?

The MAP Toolkit 5.0 Beta 1 includes the following new features:

Heterogeneous Server Environment Inventory: The Microsoft Assessment and Planning (MAP) Toolkit performs a network inventory of IT assets remotely without the use of agents, identifying heterogeneous server environments consisting of Windows Server and Linux operating systems, including those running in a virtual environment. MAP 5.0 also automates the discovery of Linux-powered LAMP stacks.

Software Usage Tracking: Right-size your IT with the MAP Toolkit 5.0. MAP 5.0’s new usage tracking feature provides consistent software usage reports for Microsoft servers, including Windows Server, SharePoint, and System Center Configuration Manager. Run updated reports whenever you need to accurately assess the current software usage and client access history in your environment. This will reduce your time and administrative costs for managing software and Server and Client Access License (CAL) licensing assets, and ensures that you pay only for the licenses you use.

Microsoft Office 2010 Readiness Assessment: Streamline your migration to Office 2010 with MAP 5.0’s hardware compatibility proposal document. The actionable recommendations and assessments presented shorten the time it takes to plan your Office 2010 migration.

Data Center Infrastructure Assessment Survey: Use this survey in the Microsoft Assessment and Planning (MAP) Toolkit 5.0 to assess the components needed to design the storage and networking infrastructure for the Dynamic Infrastructure Toolkit for System Center.
