Microsoft Assessment and Planning Toolkit (MAP) 5.5 est RTM !


Je n’ai pas arrêté de vous parler de MAP ces derniers posts comme ma suractivité de blogueur peut le prouver ! Je ne le présenterai donc pas une fois de plus. En revanche, voici le lien de téléchargement de la version RTM : http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkID=111000

Il est livré avec :

– Des exemples de documents MAP
– Un training Kit
– Un guide d’usage
– Et MAP bien sûr

Voici les nouveautés d’après Connect:

Assess IT environments for upgrade to Windows 7 and Windows Internet Explorer 8 (or the latest version). Are your customers looking for a tool to simplify their organization’s migration to Windows 7 and Internet Explorer 8—and, in turn, benefit from improved desktop security, reliability and manageability? The MAP 5.5 Internet Explorer migration assessment inventories their environment and reports on deployed web browsers, Microsoft ActiveX controls, and add-ons, and then generates a migration assessment report and proposal—information that customers need to more easily migrate to Windows 7 and Internet Explorer 8 (or the latest version).

Identify and analyze web application and database readiness for migration to the Windows Azure platform. Customers can simplify their move to the cloud with the MAP 5.5 automated discovery and detailed inventory reporting on web application and database readiness for the Windows Azure platform. MAP identifies web applications, IIS servers, and SQL Server databases, analyzes their performance characteristics, and estimates resources required such as the number of Windows Azure compute instances, number of SQL Azure databases, bandwidth usage, and storage.

Discover heterogeneous database instances for migration to SQL Server. Now with heterogeneous database inventory and reporting capability, MAP 5.5 helps customers accelerate migration to SQL Server from MySQL, Oracle, and Sybase instances.

Enhanced server consolidation assessments for Hyper-V.

Enhanced server consolidation capabilities help customers save time and effort when creating virtualization assessments and proposals. Enhancements include:

· Updated hardware libraries allowing customers to select from the latest Intel and AMD processors for more accurate server consolidation placements.
· Data collection and store every five minutes for more accurate reporting and analysis.
· Greater scalability and reliability, requiring less effort and oversight of the data collection process.
· Significant usability enhancements enabling easier configuration of the server consolidation planning process.

Have fun !
