Office Migration Planning Manager (OMPM): Office Compatibility

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 or Office 365 deployment.

OMPM assists  administrators in the discovery and compatibility assessment of existing Office documents for conversion from the binary document formats (.doc, .xls, etc.) to OpenXML formats (.docx, .xlsx, etc.).  Additionally, OMPM 2010 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 set is to help administrators understand the number and types of Microsoft Office files in their environment and effectively plan for a smooth rollout of the new version of Microsoft Office and conversion of required files to the OpenXML formats.  Note it is not necessary nor recommended to convert
all existing files when upgrading.
