Here’s a list of five ideas that you can add to your New Year’s resolutions list to make your AD management life better in 2018.


Will Automation Make IT Jobs Obsolete


Being left obsolete due to incoming power of automation is a common fear among the IT pros community.

Users often take their domain-joined laptops away from company’s premises. They can go on a business trip or just take a computer home to finish some work over the weekend. However, if they forget their password, they get locked away completely, which can become a real problem. Even if they can get to the help desk and get their password reset, they still need to wait until they come back and connect to the company’s network to be able to log in.

Managing an AD environment in an educational institution is in many ways similar to any other IT shop, but with some specific challengers on top. For example, in addition to the everyday routine, that can be quite complex by itself, IT departments in schools and universities get those super intense periods of extra load, when new students come in and the old ones leave. Solving such situations with manual management is extremely inefficient, leaving a lot of headroom for improvement.


This is where IAM solutions like Adaxes come into the game. In this article we’ll be looking at some of the most useful features that can significantly improve the AD management experience.
