What is Active Directory migration?

During an organization's merger or acquisition, its IT teams are posed with just as many challenges as the legal and the other teams that are involved in the process. Active Directory (AD), a critical component in an IT infrastructure, is responsible for handling half of these problems. Migrating your intricately-built AD, along with its objects, is a risky process and can be disruptive when not done properly. Investing in an AD migration solution simplifies the migration process, prevents downtime, and reduces the risk of data loss.

ADManager Plus as an Active Directory migration tool
