We can use BPA or Best Practices Analyzer for different scenarios. For example, check existing installation to enhance its deployment, before an upgrade or configure new components of an existing environment. It will also help us gather a lot of information quickly and from one place because it gets all the needed information from the registry, WMI (Windows Management Instrumentation), DB, SharePoint, and other components.
