    Abstract: A system, method, apparatus, means, and computer program code for evaluating potential changes to a computer or communications system. For example, an analysis may involve the partial or total consolidation of one or more servers in a computer system. The analysis may start by determining an inventory of the computer system to determine “like” elements and determining potential scenarios that use different combinations of the like elements. From these scenarios, different possible configurations that consolidate some or all of two or more of servers in the system are determined and financial models or other information determined for the different configurations. The different configurations can then be ranked or reported in accordance with one or more designated factors or other criteria.
