Microsoft Assessment and Planning Toolkit is a software program that allows users to perform a detailed inventory of computers on a network in order to generate reports and make the necessary upgrades.
The installation process goes smoothly, thanks to its intuitive interface. As you enter the program, you are welcomed by a simple GUI, with the main menu on top of the screen and a panel where you can view the selected information. If you are a beginner, the program comes with plenty of tutorials and helpful documentation to choose from.
When it comes to program capabilities, Microsoft Assessment and Planning Toolkit offers numerous tools to gather and analyze the information. It has several scenarios, such as Cloud, Desktop, Desktop Virtualization, and regardless of your choice, thanks to Windows Management Instrumentation, you'll be able to achieve your desired task.
In addition to that, when selecting all the needed data you are assisted at every step, so it's much easier to fulfill your task. Also, opening the location of saved reports in Windows Explorer and database creation is extremely easy to do.
Overall, I'd say that Microsoft Assessment and Planning Toolkit is a nice crafted software, packed with various useful tools, supports XML files and uses a decent amount of system resources. The only cons were the lack of any customizations options and the fact that the installation process does take several minutes.
