    A Review Of Softerra’s Adaxes AD Automation Software

    "This is truly an amazing product. The attention to detail is astounding. The fact that they even included a nice PowerShell script editor built into the product clearly feels like they aren’t considering PowerShell a competitor like some other automation products but rather a complement to finish off the last mile of automation for their customers.

    If you’re an AD administrator, I whole-heartedly think you should give Adaxes a try."

    Product Review: Softerra Adaxes

    "Once I saw Adaxes in action I realized it would very easily replace many of the native management tools that IT admins use, such as AD Users & Computers, the Exchange Admin Center, and the collection of custom scripts that tend to build up over time. ... Personally, if I was implementing automation for Active Directory and Exchange administration by an IT operations team today, I would seriously consider building it on Adaxes.

    If you’re an AD administrator, I whole-heartedly think you should give Adaxes a try."
