Our friends over in the Solution Accelerators team just released the beta version of the Microsoft Assessment and Planning tool (MAP) 4.0.  Many of you have discovered just how valuable these Solution Accelerators have been, based on the feedback we receive.  We want to bring this particular release to your attention, since assessing your current environment is a critical first step to see how ready your organization is for a Windows 7 deployment.
In the case of the Microsoft Assessment and Planning tool, this agentless and scalable toolkit has the ability to discover all computers within Active Directory and workgroup environments. It performs key functions that include hardware and device inventory, hardware compatibility analysis, and generation of actionable, environment-specific IT proposals for migration to most major Microsoft technologies.
