The Need of the Moment...

With a welcoming spread of over twenty technical programs and five pre-university programs, the four-decade-old College Montmorency receives no less than 6000 freshers each year. While this figure looks lucrative to any college, they would also be very much aware of the hassles involved in creating new users in the Active Directory for the academic year's intake, and Montmorency was, in no way, an exception. However, one aspect of this process that Montmorency wanted to capitalize on was that most of the attributes required for the new entries stayed the same across the entire batch, and only a few attributes were dependent on the program that each student was enrolled in. This would drastically bring down the time and resources involved in creating a batch of new users in the Active Directory.

In an offline perspective, this can be easily effected on a spreadsheet - a role that Microsoft Excel's csv format fills far more than adequately. However, the real task was bridging the shallow yet wide gap between the 'csv' and the 'Active Directory' was to bring the data from the spreadsheet to the Active Directory without loss of fidelity.

ADManager Plus to the Rescue...

ManageEngine ADManager Plus came as a boon to the IT Infrastructure technicians in College Montmorency. Pre-defined templates work the wonder it takes to create a defined set of attributes for a particular class of freshers. This is appealingly garnished by the csv-bulk-users import option. All these features added up to a comprehensive Active Directory Management tool that ADManager Plus already is! Owing to all these advantages, without second thoughts, ADManager Plus still continues to be the undisputed choice of College Montmorency when it comes to Active Directory management and user administration.

ADManager Plus is enterprise-wide Active Directory management software with out-of-the-box reporting user-management features.

With an interface that allows ease of access, and simplicity of reports, ADManager Plus presents itself as an IT Manager's magic-wand when it comes to Active Directory management. Plus, the reports are oxymoronic - exhaustive in data intensity, yet simple to comprehend.

Feast on the Features...

ADManager Plus is armed to the teeth for any Active Directory management task. With this tool, you can:

  • Manage AD objects in bulk by using the CSV import/export feature.
  • Generate about 150 different kinds of reports on Active Directory users and other objects, and schedule them to run periodically.
  • Effectively manage Active Directory groups and OUs.
  • Delegate Active Directory tasks and authority for technicians.
  • Synchronize with Microsoft Exchange to create mailboxes.
  • Manage Active Directory workflow by creating requests and defining an approval procedure.
  • Carry out activities that can be documented in accordance to Govt. Regulatory Acts.

Think out any other feature of an AD Manager and it's bound to be in here... :-)

...and this is it!!

With ADManager Plus serving as a mold to create users with a specific set of attributes, handling each year's intake is literally a cakewalk for the IT Infrastructure Technicians in College Montmorency! No wonder, ADManager Plus still continues to make their admission process easy, year after year!
