The 12 Essential Tasks of Active Directory Domain Services

Active Directory Domain Services (AD DS) administration and management includes 12 major tasks. These tasks cover a wide breadth of business needs and are not all performed solely by AD DS administrators. In fact, administrators can and should delegate several tasks to other members of their technical community, technicians, help desk personnel, even users such as team managers and administrative assistants. While delegation is a way to reduce the amount of work administrators have to do when managing AD DS infrastructures, it really only addresses one or two of the 12 tasks, for example, user and group administration as well as end point device administration. The other ten tasks can be staggering in nature — security, networked service administration, OU-Specific Management, Group Policy Object management and many more — and because of this can take up inordinate amounts of time,

Protecting the data of refugees and those who help them

To protect refugees, employees and supply transports—plus minimise costs—the Danish Refugee Council (DRC) wanted to standardise the management of Active Directory. After evaluating solution options, DRC deployed One Identity Active Roles. As a result, DRC established user templates and automated workflows for governing access for 7,000 global employees. Today, DRC can provision new users in an hour. IT staff have greater control over who can access which applications and data. And the organisation has increased staff efficiency, boosted savings and simplified regulatory compliance.

The Journey To IAM Success

For some it’s all about streamlining the user experience through technologies and practices that make it easier for them to securely logon. For others, IAM is all about identity lifecycle management – ensuring that accounts are set up, modified, and retired in a timely, accurate, and secure manner, and still for others it’s focused on security and compliance through technologies and practices that make governance activities such as attestations easy and complete, or adding a layer of control and visibility to privileged accounts and “superuser” access.

You can get IAM right

In an ideal world, we’d have the budget and time we need to get things done. And tomorrow would be predictable. But that’s simply not the case, especially in the IT universe.

As you well know, the world of identity and access management (IAM) is one of constant change, shrinking deadlines, minuscule budgets, overtaxed staff and unmerciful regulations. Unfortunately, the approach most organizations take to IAM involves piecing together ‘half solutions,’ in the hope that tomorrow’s solutions will address real-world needs.

Get IAM Right in SAPcentric organizations

SAP is critical to many organizations’ operations and success, and IAM is essential for EVERY organization’s success. You would think that it’s a compatible match, right? It turns out that navigating the relationship between the two sides can be tumultuous.
