MAP: Customer Evidence “ Costco IT staff used the Microsoft Assessment and Planning (MAP) Toolkit to evaluate server loads…Using the toolkit, staff members discovered that, in many cases, servers were running at only 5 percent utilization, making them good candidates for consolidation” Jason Griffith, Costco Wholesale Corp., Microsoft Customer in US “ Because of the tool’s recommendations, CHS decided not to replace all of its computers as originally planned. By replacing only half of the computers, the company reduced hardware costs, originally budgeted at $76,000, by 50 percent.” Sumeeth Evans, Collegiate Housing Services, Microsoft Customer in U.S. “ Unlike other tools in the market, this tool offers fast, secure and agent-less assessment for hardware and device compatibility in a matter of hours instead of days. …our recommended tool for our sales force to generate demand for Windows Vista deployments...” David Feng, Systex Corporation, Gold Certified Partner in Taiwan
