Hi All,

 

I came across this tool which I thought could be valuable when you are looking at upgrades to Vista, Windows 2008 or indeed, virtualisation.

 

This network-wide assessment tool gives you not only the capability of hardware inventory and assessment for desktops, but includes server migration recommendations for Windows Server 2008, virtualization workload placements for server consolidation with Hyper-V or Virtual Server 2005 R2, and application virtualization recommendations with Microsoft Application Virtualization.

The Microsoft Assessment and Planning Solution Accelerator performs three key functions, including hardware and device inventory, compatibility analysis, and readiness reporting.
