Microsoft Cloud Analysis Tool and Infrastructure Optimization Tool

The Microsoft Cloud Analysis Tool helps you build a roadmap to the Cloud based on your business needs, constraints, and desired attributes.  It's a "what if" for the Cloud, that you can play out the possibilities by changing your parameters.  That's a mighty powerful thing if you are trying to cycle through various options and understand the trade-offs.   In fact, independent of the actual content in the tool, I think the most valuable part is the framing of the decisions.  If you use nothing else, you can at least use the frames to help you accelerate your own Cloud decision making, and make more informed choices.
