Assess Your Active Directory

Your Active Directory (AD) get used every day, and as your organization has gotten bigger and bigger, it might have gotten a little difficult to manage. Before you decide if you want to switch to a cloud-based platform or optimize your existing AD, start with an assessment. Here are a few steps to assessing your current AD:

  1. Examine current practices. Determine what policies for user authentication are, and if they are consistent from department to department. Each member of the IT team should have clear instructions on what to do if users change names, departments, etc.
  2. Analyze your resource allocation. How much of your current budget are spending on managing your Active Directory, including man hours for IT calls? Determine your Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) and decide whether certain projects at certain times of year could be handled through Managed IT services.
  3. Have us perform a Project Health Check to determine what your current configuration and infrastructure issues are and how much of your data could be optimized into more efficient domain forests. We can outline exactly how we can save you tens of thousands of dollars year after year by optimizing and reducing your TCO.
