The Microsoft® Assessment and Planning (MAP) Toolkit 9.3 is an inventory, assessment, and reporting tool that helps you assess your current IT infrastructure and determine the right Microsoft technologies for your IT needs. The MAP Toolkit uses Windows® Management Instrumentation (WMI), Active Directory® Domain Services (AD DS), SMS Provider, and other technologies to collect data in your environment and inventories computer hardware, software, and operating systems in small or large IT environments without installing any agent software on the target computers.

The data and analysis provided by MAP streamline the planning process for software migration, help assess device driver availability, and allow you to make 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. Use the MAP Toolkit to simplify the planning process for migration to Windows 10 Windows® 8.1, Windows Server 2012, Windows 7, Microsoft Office 2010, Microsoft Office 2013, Microsoft Office 365, Internet Explorer 11, Windows Azure Platform, Windows Server 2008 R2, Microsoft SQL Server® 2012, Hyper-V™, Hyper-V R2, and Microsoft Private Cloud Fast Track.
