Productivity Starts with the User.

icon-directoryFor most companies, Active Directory (AD) or LDAP plays the central role in coordinating identity and access management policies. Directory integration typically serves as a “source of truth” for user identities, and it provides access control to on-premises resources such as networks, file servers, and web applications.

However, in order to fully realize these capabilities and receive the most value out of your infrastructure, it is important to utilize an architecture that is designed appropriately for your business. It is common for existing Active Directory and messaging architectures to become disorganized, inefficient, and difficult to manage.

Some common directory design flaws include:

  • Inefficient Structure
    Users, computers and groups and email should be organized so that tasks including management can be done with the least amount of administrative effort. In many cases, IT workers are doing more work than necessary because they are limited by the directory and Exchange structure.
  • Inability to Scale
    Inefficient design and management of Active Directory can lead to additional complexity and a decrease in the ability to grow effectively.

While these problems can be corrected by redesigning your architecture, they can be easily avoided if planned effectively during the initial phases of a new deployment or migration project.

No two companies are alike, so there is no one-size-fits-all design.  Perhaps you need to create a new directory, consolidate directories or move your directory to the cloud.

We make it our purpose to help design a solution that fits your business needs.
