Most organizations spend far too much time provisioning, de-provisioning, and re-provisioning users in Active Directory. The native tools are inefficient and time-consuming, and the manual processes they require introduce human error that compromises both the security and stability of the environment. In addition, many organizations have equally inefficient but completely separate processes for provisioning their non-Windows systems, adding to administrative overhead and introducing even more security risks. This white paper explains the challenges of managing Active Directory provisioning using native tools, and the challenges of provisioning in a heterogeneous environment. It also describes the features and functionality that would be desirable in a comprehensive provisioning solution such as Quest One.
