Get the maximum out of Active Directory
For many, the very word “directory service” conjures up the word “Active Directory”; such is its dominance in the field of resource and infrastructure management. With centralized resource management as its heart, it attempts to ease resource administration. However, there are some loose ends in it, which render its administrative capabilities insufficient. Consider the following tasks:
  • Creating/modifying/deleting an endless list of user, computer or contact objects
  • Handling high volumes of repetitive requests such as “password reset” (A helpdesk agent, on an average, spends 40% of his/her time on such requests!)
  • Auditing changes in Active Directory and reporting them in accordance with regulatory acts such as SOX, HIPAA, GLBA, etc.
Imagine the effort required to perform these basic but, ubiquitous and frequent tasks! Quite laborious indeed! This shortfall is very well addressed by the following Active Directory Solutions from ManageEngine, which complement Active Directory by tapping into its unexploited potential:
"Actions speak more than words", so try your hands on these products now, and see for yourself how you can get the maximum out of your Active Directory!
