If you are preparing for migration to Office 2010, then this one’s for you.

The Office Migration Planning Manager (OMPM) 2010 is a group of tools designed to help administrators during the planning and testing phases of a Microsoft Office 2010 deployment.

OMPM assists administrators in the discovery and compatibility assessment of existing Office documents for migration from the binary document formats (.doc, .xls, etc.) to OpenXML formats (.docx, .xlsx, etc.).  It also adds features to assess macro compatibility with Office 2010 and 64 bit Office compatibility.

The toolkit also contains the Office File Converter (OFC), which enables bulk document conversions from binary to OpenXML formats, and a Version Extraction Tool (VET) to extract saved file versions.

The goal of the tool is to help administrators understand the number and types of Microsoft Office files in their environment, and then effectively plan for a smooth rollout of Office 2010.
