Conclusion

Compared to ADManager Plus, XIA Automation Server has limited AD bulk management, lacks reporting and misses out on approval-based execution by helpdesks.ADManager Plus stands tall by providing all these functionalities and more in a single comprehensive and user friendly interface. These advantages coupled with multi-domain-management capabilities make ADManager Plus the right choice for Active Directory administrators and organizations that demand a convenient & On-the-fly AD Management.
